Summary: this is an original "Rambo – The Mission" movie knife made by the Lile shop after Jimmy passed away. Razor sharp with what looks to be the original edge (clip is not sharp) -- the 10-1/8" bead blasted blade looks awesome with the polished edges. The guard with screwdriver tips have some light spotting, rather minor so I didn't mess with it as I didn't want to muck up the finish. The black handle wrap has a few areas of scuffing from past handling, again... rather minor. Skull crusher butt cap with lanyard at the butt end of the knife, this one did not come with a compass.
The knife is paired with the original leather sheath made by Sullivan, the main sheath supplier to Lile Knives after Jimmy passed away. The knife / sheath fit is perfect, LILE shop stamp on the back. The EZ Lap sharpener was MIA when I acquired the knife, they're readily available on the secondary market for less than 20 bucks. The sheath is in excellent condition with original lanyard, just a few scuffs / handling marks on both sides.
9 photos for review – as shown, a new black Maxpedition carry case is included. This is an excellent price on a very nice example of a custom post death "Rambo – The Mission", a movie knife perfect for collection / long term investment purposes or survival use. These are getting tough to find in any condition, these shop customs are good ones to buy and hang on to for the long haul. Thanks and good luck.
