Summary: this is a previously owned but unused Lile large folding hunter, #037 with pre-ban ivory inserts. Engraved patent number on the back side button (round area), date year "93" stamped down inside. (assembled in 1993) The knife has not been resharpened and is easily 95% or better, the blade is perfect and next to no handling marks on the body! One small check in the ivory back side as shown in the last photo that does not detract from the overall beauty of the knife.
Paired with the knife is one of the vintage folding hunter tri-fold cases. Sweet find, condition is excellent!
6 photos for review – I’ll ship Fed Ex ground and follow up with the tracking number. One of 5 Lile buttonlock’s in on consignment… all are gorgeous pieces perfect for collection / investment purposes. Thanks and good luck.
