Summary: this is a script-signed double blade lockback folding knife made by Jimmy Lile. Dimensions above, this knife dates back to 1973 and was made by Jimmy as a gift for Marilyn. Pud was Marilyn's nickname, Jimmy only made a handful of knives with the personalized 'Pud' script on them. The blades are made from 1/8" stock with "Hand Made by James B. Lile" on the main blade, the "Pud Jan '73" script on the same blade... back side. The knife is in excellent+++ condition, both blades perfect with original edges. The pinned metal handle has a few very light handling marks, really only visible if you inspect the knife under direct light. (would easily buff away if so desired)
5 photos for review -- I'll ship the knife in a new black suede folding knife carry case. This is an early, super rare double blade Lile lockback – another great piece perfect for collection / investment purposes. Very few of these double blades come up for sale, it's an awesome piece. Thanks and good luck.
