Summary: this is a large Lile "Death Wind" knife finished by the Lile shop at some point after Jimmy's passing. Serial number is 278, the knife is in near mint condition with just a pencil tip-sized scuff on the black micarta handle. I’ve seen documentation that there were a total of 284 Death Winds made, this would be one of the last half dozen made assuming they were made in order.
The knife is paired to the original Lile issue ambidextrous sheath with shop stamps on both sides. The sheath is in excellent+++ condition, nothing but a few handling scuffs on both sides.
8 photos for review -- as shown, a new black canvas carry case is included. These large Lile Death Wind knives are very popular, perfect for military use or investment purposes. Dot or no dot, these are getting hard to find for sale as time passes. Thanks and good luck.
