Summary: a very rare knife, this is an integral / interframe hunter made by Jimmy Lile. This knife has a 3-1/2" blade, integral guard & thong hole, and Westinghouse micarta handle inserts with red tang liners. LILE stamp on the blade, no dot. The knife is in unused / near mint condition, original edge with nothing but a fingerprint or two to be found. Simply amazing, condition is second to none.
The knife is paired with a shop issue pouch sheath. Not the original; that said, it fits the knife perfectly and has the Lile shop stamp on the back. Made by either Galco or Sullivan, the sheath is in excellent+++ or better condition with just a few scuffs / handling marks.
9 photos for review – as shown, a black canvas carry case is included. This is a great knife, not too many of these interframes come up for sale. (certainly not in this condition with Westinghouse micarta!) It's a great piece perfect for investment / collection purposes, on consignment from the original owner who had it tucked away since he purchased it from Jimmy and Marilyn. Thanks and good luck.
