Made by Jimmy Lile (died 1991), who was inducted into the Blade Magazine Cutlery Hall of Fame in 1984 and the ABS Bladesmithing Hall of Fame in 1999. Both daggers are signed "Hand Made by/James B. Lile" on the blade, with brass fittings and a brown leather sheath. 1) Arkansas Toothpick style dagger, 17 1/4" OAL, 12" blade, smooth grip. Some age cracks in the grip. 2) Boot knife, 7 1/4" OAL, 3 3/4" blade, stag grip scales on a full sized tang. Both are very good, with mild handling marks and verdigris buildup.
