Summary: unused with original edges, a terrific example of a long-bladed Sly II. The bead blasted blade finish is in excellent shape, high probability that this is D2 steel. There are a few light spots on both sides of the blade, all quite minor and stated more for accuracy than anything else. The dark green cord wrap is flawless as is the knurled butt cap with original compass. Original edges (clip is sharp), overall a 9 or so on a scale of 1 to 10.

The Johnson sheath is in excellent or better condition with a few scuffs / spots / storage marks here and there, all typical for a sheath this age. Very little in the way of knife storage marks, Johnson and 9 stamps on the back. The EZ Lap sharpener had some tarnish / verdigris on it but cleaned up nicely.

Bonus: new / old stock “25 Years Lile Knives” t-shirt, size x-large.

12 photos for review -- as shown, a green canvas & buffalo hide carry case is included. To summarize: this is an exceptionally nice long-bladed Sly II that has never been used, one that has obviously been tucked away most all it's life. A great knife to buy if a few very small spots on the blade don’t bother you, it's never been messed with and is all original. Rambo 5 Last Blood comes out tomorrow... can’t wait! Thanks and good luck.
