Summary: this is a previously owned but unused Lile large folding hunter, #094 with very nicely matching deep cut stag inserts. Engraved patent number on the back side button (round area), date year "94" stamped down inside. (assembled in 1994) The knife has not been resharpened and is easily 95% or better, the blade is perfect and next to no handling marks on the body! Really… it’s gorgeous.
Paired with the knife is one of the old “pancake” folding hunter sheaths that has some front side tooling. These are $300 stand-alone and that’s if you’re lucky enough to find one for sale! The sheath has some handling front and back, a few spots here and there but IMO no big deal.
7 photos for review – I’ll ship Fed Ex ground and follow up with the tracking number. One of 5 Lile buttonlock’s in on consignment… it’s like Christmas! Thanks and good luck.
