Summary: this is an original "Rambo – The Mission" movie knife made by the Lile shop before Jimmy passed away. Razor sharp with what looks to be the original edges (clip IS sharp) -- the 10" bead blasted blade in nearly new condition with just a few light rubs in the finish. The guard with screwdriver tips with just a light rub here and there, rather minor so I didn't mess with it as I didn't want to muck up the finish. The black handle wrap is perfect, no abrasion or scuff marks. Skull crusher butt cap with lanyard at the butt end of the knife, this one with the original green / black compass that is working perfectly.
The knife is paired with the original leather sheath made by Sullivan, the main sheath supplier to Lile Knives after the Johnson shop burned down. The knife / sheath fit is perfect, LILE shop stamp on the back. The EZ Lap sharpener was MIA when I brought the knife in on consignment, they're readily available on the secondary market for less than 20 bucks. The sheath is in excellent condition with original lanyard, there are some scuffs / handling marks on both sides that really don't show in all the photos. (assume condition at an 8 - 8.5 on a scale of 1 - 10)
10 photos for review – as shown, a black canvas carry case is included. This is an excellent price on a very nice example of a no dot "Rambo – The Mission", a movie knife perfect for collection / long term investment purposes or survival use. These are getting tough to find in unused condition – this one's never been anywhere but sitting in someone's collection since new. Great knife -- thanks and good luck.
