Our best guess is that this 1970s Jimmy Lile Small Lock Back Folder was made in either 1975 or 1976. It's featured on pages 278 and 294 in the "James B. Lile: The Arkansas Knifemaker. Knifemaker to the World" book by Lucarelli, Hill, Wise, and Wilson as part of the John Battaglia collection. It's a lockback with a satin finished 2.15" D2 blade that opens with a nail nick. The fit and finish is stellar and the lock up is rock solid. It has carved, scrimshawed ivory handles mounted on a nickel silver frame and with nickel silver bolsters. We neither see nor feel any cracks in the handles, but there are signs of age on all parts of the nickel silver frame as well as some surface scratches on the bolsters as pictured. It's 3" closed and weighs about 2.6 ounces.

Please note: The knife you see is the only one in stock. Make sure to review all pictures and info before purchase. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out to us here.
