A Jimmy Lile first edition Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) knife with black sheath and sharpening stone of the same model seen in George P. Cosmatos' action sequel Rambo: First Blood Part II. Rambo took his signature survival knife with him back to Vietnam on a mission to rescue captive prisoners of war.
Knifesmith and designer Jimmy Lile created a custom knife for the film, and while this piece is not film-used, it is from the original run produced by Lile. It comes with an original leather sheath stamped with the knifesmith's information on the back and a cylindrical sharpening stone on the front with its own sleeve. The knife features a compass stored in an unscrewable metal piece on the butt of the handle. It features engravings on the blade directly above the bolster reading "RAMBO The Mission" (The film's working title) on one side of the hilt and "LILE 008" on the other, indicating that this is #8 of the production run. First run Jimmy Lile knives are highly sought after by collectors. This knife is in excellent overall condition with some minor wear on the sheath, bolster, blade and sharpening stone.
