The late Mr. Lile was one of the most influential knife makers in America. He was the maker of the original "Rambo First Blood"
and "Rambo II" movie knives. Mr. Lile was the inventor of the famous
"Lile Lock" folding knife currently on display at the Smithsonian
Institute. He was known in my home state as the "Arkansas Knifemaker". - Larry Connelley
