Jimmy Lile “Memorial Bowie” #019
10” 440c / Satin Finish / SS Fittings
Flawless Elephant Ivory / Gerstner
A highly sought after Lile Memorial Bowie, a Bowie knife dedicated by Marilyn to Jimmy and to his / their friendships and customers. These tribute Bowie’s rarely surface, when they do they’re typically gobbled up in short fashion.
Jimmy Lile 9” Classic Bowie Knife
9” Satin Finish Blade / LILE Stamp

Mint condition with COA signed by Marilyn, this is a 9” Classic Bowie with nickel silver guard and very nicely matching stag scales with pinned NS escutcheon plate.
Jimmy Lile Tomahawk / Original & Rare!!
Head is 6” Long / Overall Length is 10-3/4”
Brass Hilt / Brass & Red Spacers / Fingered
With the late Tom Clinton’s inventory sticker still attached, this is a rare script signed Lile Tomahawk with fingered walnut handle and brass hardware.
Jimmy Lile “Deerslayer” / Script Signed
6.75” Blade w/ Script Signature / Single
Brass Guard / Osage (Bois D’Arc) Handle
Another very rare Lile model, very few of these Deerslayers were made. I originally referred to these as muleskinners but was correct by former shop employee and knife maker extraordinaire Steven Lynn.
Jimmy Lile Knife Model 10 / Mint
6-3/4” Script Signed / Brass Guard
& Butt Cap / Dark Micarta Handle
A rarely seen early model 10 made by Jimmy way back in the 1969-1970 era. The blade on this knife is 6-3/4”, overall length of the knife is 11-3/8”. Script signed “Hand Made by James B. Lile”
Jimmy Lile “39th Brigade” Bowie Knife / Unused
7” Tool / Script “Hand Made by James B. Lile
Brass Guard & Pins / Black Micarta Handle Slabs
This is a very early script-signed 39th Brigade Bowie Knife made by Jimmy Lile. This well documented Bowie knife has a 7” tool steel blade with unsharpened clip, double brass hilt, and black micarta slabs with brass pins.
Jimmy Lile "Straight Hunter" / Near Mint
5" Blade / LILE Stamp / Dot / Single NS
Hilt and Pins / Flawless Elephant Ivory
The knife is in near mint condition with nothing more than light patina spots on the pins. The 5” blade is perfect, the blade edge original and not resharpened.
Jimmy Lile Mod #4 / Fingered Stag
Script Signed 5" Blade / Brass Guard
Right-Hand Fingered Stag / Original
This Lile model 4 has not been used and still has it's original edge. Light tarnish and a few spots on the brass guard, all will quickly buff to new.

Black Micarta Scales / Original Issue
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.
