    Sylvester Stallone "John Rambo" signature hero survival knife from Rambo: First Blood Part II. (Carolco, 1985) The 16 in. long knife with 10-in. blade is one of ten used in production, custom-made by renowned knife craftsman Jimmy Lile. The knife blade is crafted of stainless steel and finished in matte black with buffed edges, featuring a semi-sharpened cutting edge, a saw section on the spine and flat- and Phillips-head screwdrivers on either side of the guard. It also has a hollow machined-aluminum handle with a screw-end cap that features a built-in compass, and the handle grip is tightly wound in dense black thread. The ricasso is stamped "3 of 10 / RAMBO / THE MISSION" on one side, and "LILE" on the reverse (in reference to the number created and the builder). A length of leather cord runs through a machined hole end cap. Knife exhibits light wear and handling. This knife was gifted by Stallone to weapons consultant/technical advisor Tony Maffatone and comes with a signed letter of provenance from Maffatone's daughter. Included with right-handed black leather scabbard with sharpening tool with backside stamped "Johnson Sheathery".
