Summary: this is a Jimmy Lile Alaskan Skinner with 5" script signed blade and big crown stag handle. The blade is perfect and has the early "Hand Made by James B. Lile" script, this is probably a late 1960's to early 1970’s knife. Stag is flawless, overall condition is excellent+++ to near mint, just some patina patina on the brass guard that looks too nice to mess with.
8 photos for review – as shown, a new black canvas carry case and one of Jimmy’s business cards both included. This was tucked away in the collection of the late Tom Clinton for years and years and never came with a sheath, it’s absolutely gorgeous and would look great with some type of a Zebra or Kudu hide custom. It’s worth way more than my asking price, the near perfect condition leaves you no room nor reason to upgrade. Thanks and good luck.
