Summary: up for grabs, a very rare Lile First Blood Tribute knife made by Vaughn Neeley. Vaughn made this spectacular rendition of the original with a 9" SS blade with 14 sawteeth (5 rake and 9 split), NON-polished edged blade, stainless steel guard with screwdriver tips, hollow stainless steel handle with green cord wrap, and knurled aluminum butt cap with embedded compass. This is the #080 knife, it is brand new / unused and in mint condition.
Vaughn made the leather sheath that accompanies the knife, right-side carry complete with stone pouch. It doesn't have that worn, weathered look like John Rambo's movie sheath, that only comes with plenty of use and years of exposure to foul weather. Doubt that will happen, best to enjoy this extremely well made sheath tucked away next to the knife under glass. The sheath is in excellent+++ or better condition, just a few small rubs.
9 photos for review -- as shown, a black canvas carry case is included. This is the #080 knife from what is now a nearly sold out offering – from what I've been told, this is the ONLY numbered Neeley Next Gen First Blood with a non polished blade finish. Perfect for the collector / Lile aficionado - offered well below original cost. Thanks and good luck.
