"This is a very unique creation by Jimmy Lile, considered to be one of the great master knife-makers in American blade history. Interestingly, he made my knife for the first Rambo film, First Blood. We thought now that Rambo's going back into combat, let's make something that is more stealth so Jimmy came up with this configuration. Originally, he made the blade pure black which was too stealth, too difficult to see on film. So he redesigned it, buffed the edges so you could see the knife flash through the darkness, and it then became associated with the extraordinary fighting skills of Rambo himself."
