Summary: the last hollow handle Lile knife I have for sale, had four others but all those have sold. This is the only double edged stiletto, obviously a unique pattern and a VERY rare knife.
The blade is 7”, overall length is about 12-1/4”. Steel guard, non magnetic tube and butt that are presumably aluminum. The blade is script signed “Hand Made by James B. Lile”, no signs of use with original edges. A few areas of discoloration on / in the blade finish, all things considered no big deal. This knife was out of the late Tom Clinton’s hoard, I cleaned the sticker residue off the butt cap. (Tom used stickers for inventory purposes) No sheath every accompanied the knife but I would imagine it would fit well in to one made for a Randall #2-7”.
Bonus: original Lile Hand Made Knives Arkansas Oilstone brochure signed by Jimmy.
7 photos for review – as shown, a black canvas carry case is included. Check it out, this is a very fair price on an exceptionally rare Lile knife. Thanks and good luck.
