For Jimmy Lile, little did he know at the young age of 11, when he created his first knife, that he would one day be known as “Gentleman Lile” or “The Arkansas Knifemaker” for his creative knife making skills. This September, Dallas Auction Gallery is presenting an opportunity for auction buyers to bid for the mastery of Jimmy Lile with his original Knife Collection.
The collection of knives by the legendary craftsman showcases quality and finesse. One of the items such as Rambo: The Mission is in an excellent condition with rare Johnson left-hand sheath and a Lap sharpener. But stealing the spotlight is a complete set of 8 knives including one rare, First Blood which is an 8 of 13 movie knife with the highest estimated value of $35,000.
It is said that Lile put the American custom knifemaking and artistry in the map when he collaborated with Sylvester Stallone for the movie Rambo, hence providing the names such as Rambo and the first blood to the knives. Rambo knives also known as survival knives are used for trapping, skinning, woodcutting, wood carving, and other uses, making this collection, not just noteworthy but value for everyone’s investment. Don’t miss out on this fine opportunity and bid for your favorite items on Bidsquare.
