Summary: unused and easily near mint with nothing but patina / tarnish on the brass guard and butt cap. This one’s a beauty, tucked away and obviously cared for. OAL is a hair under 11-3/4”. Original edges (clip is sharpened) and black cord wrap, LILE with no dot stamped on the blade. All said and done, an easy 9.5 on a scale of 1 to 10.
The sheath made by Johnson with makers stamp and 65 (6.5” blade length) stamped on the back. Condition is excellent+++ or better, aside from some age spots this one’s pretty much mint.
8 photos for review – as shown, a new black canvas carry case is included. These no dot Lile Combat knives are becoming really tough to find for sale, I had one up the other day and it sold in a days time. This one is in equal shape, these are better than any I’ve seen in the last five years or so. Perfect for collection / investment purposes... don’t miss out. This is a bargain, if it’s still here in a week I’m going to raise the price $100. Thanks and good luck.
