This Jimmy Lile Large Lock Back Folder Ivory Scrimshaw was made on 1-13-73 for John Battaglia and is featured on pages 278 and 294 in the book, "James B. Lile: The Arkansas Knifemaker. Knifemaker to the World" by Lucarelli, Hill, Wise, and Wilson. It was bought as part of the John Battaglia collection. It's a large lockback with a satin 3" D2 drop point blade that opens with a nail nick. The fit and finish is stellar and the lock up is has developed a slight wobble over the decades. The scrimshaw work on the ivory handles was done by J. Laymon. It has a stainless-steel frame with a gorgeous finish. The handle scales feel nice and tight, but there are cracks in the ivory near the pins and on the face as pictured. It's 3.88" closed and weighs about 3.7oz.

This is a one-of-a-kind knife. The knife you see pictured is the knife that's for sale. Please make sure you look at all the many, many pictures.
