For twenty-one years, between 1969 and his untimely death in early 1991, Jimmy Lile created some of the finest and most original custom knives and other edged weapons known. Along the way, a legend began to grow. For, in doing what he loved during his short lifetime, this modest and likeable man became known far and wide as "the Arkansas Knifesmith", as well as "Knifesmith to the World." Jimmy's classic Bowie knives, the distinctive fixed blade knives, Jimmy's favorite folding knives including his original patented "Lile Lock" Folding Hunters, the custom axes, cutlery and other items he made, and-of course-the deservedly famous "Rambo" series of movie knives, all contributed their part to the Lile knifemaking legend.
