Summary: this is the serial #001 Lile Next Generation "Gray Ghost" made by Vaughn Neeley. The Gray Ghost was one of Jimmy's very popular models, this Next Gen model is as sturdy as it is functional. Full tang construction and made from 1/4" blade stock, blade is 6" with sharpened clip. The overall length of the knife is 11-1/2". The knife is very comfortable "in hand", the fingered black linen micarta grips held in place with stainless fittings and three stainless tubes. Stamped "LILE" on the front and "V Neeley 001" on the back, the knife is new with original edge and in mint condition.
The brown leather sheath is original to the knife and made fromo 8 - 10oz. top grain cowhide, this one's never been on a belt and is in near mint condition with just a couple of very light scuffs.
9 photos for review – as shown, a new black canvas carry case and 550 paracord survival bracelet both included. I've had countless inquiries from collectors looking for Lile Gray Ghost's, this #001 Next Gen model made by Vaughn Neeley is as good as it gets with respect to quality and collectibility. Thanks and good luck.
