10” 440c Blade / Custom Guard, Collar &
Butt Cap / Stag w/ Engraved Escutcheon

10” 440c / Satin Finish / SS Fittings

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.

8” Script “Hand Made by James B. Lile
Brass Guard & Pins / Elep Ivory Scales
This is an early Lile Frontier Bowie with 8” blade, brass guard and pins and elephant ivory slabbed handle scales. Everything is in great shape, light handling and patina on the brass guard and pins but that’s about it. Script-signed “Hand Made by James B. Lile”
Jimmy Lile Knife 12-1/4” Toothpick
Script Signed Blade / Brass Hilt & Pins
“Old Yeller” Westinghouse Micarta
Another great deal on a previously owned script signed Lile knife. There is way more good about this knife than anything else, condition is excellent or better with nothing but a few spots on the blade near the tip
Jimmy Lile 7” Stiletto / Hollow Handle
7” Double Edged, Script Signed Blade
Aluminum Handle & Removable Butt
The last hollow handle Lile knife I have for sale, had four others but all those have sold. This is the only double edged stiletto, obviously a unique pattern.
A rare Lile Knives SOG made by the shop after Jimmy passed away. Why rare?
The last of four button lock molds for sale. There were two large button lock molds and two small molds, three sold and this is the last one.
