This Set of knives by the Late Jimmy Lile features a button lock and two drop point hunters. All have satin blades. The fixed blades have nickel silver guards and ivory scales with red scrimshawed double eagle, red liners, nickel silver pins and lanyard hole, the larger knife has .179" blade stock and 1.022" blade depth, the smaller knife has .091" blade stock and .898" blade depth, both have full tapered tangs. The button lock has a nickel silver frame with matching ivory inlays. Comes with a nice presentation box with inlaid ivory double eagle. Has a few light scratches, otherwise excellent condition. One of a kind set.
Note from the consignor: Lile made these knives for Charles R Rittenberry of Tulsa, OK sometime in the late 70s or early 80s. Rittenberry was a wealthy oil man and one of his companies was Double Eagle Production which carried as its logo the German Double Eagle. His planes had the same logo on their tails. I acquired them from Rittenberry sometime in the late 80s and have had them in a safe ever since. They have never been opened or displayed.
