Sylvester Stallone "John Rambo" hero screen-used survival knife with sheath from First Blood

Sylvester Stallone “John Rambo” hero screen-used survival knife with sheath from First Blood. (Anabasis N.V., 1982) This “John Rambo” hero knife was used by Sylvester Stallone in the classic action thriller First Blood—the first film in the Rambo franchise. Crafted by legendary Arkansas knifesmith Jimmy Lile, the knife features a 9-inch D2 steel blade with 14 sawteeth (measures 13.88 in. overall length) and is one of six used in the production. The hollow stainless steel handle is wrapped in non-slip nylon cord and the stainless steel screw-in butt cap features a built-in compass. The guard features both “flat” and “Phillips”-head screwdrivers on either side. The ricasso is stamped “FIRST BLOOD” on one side, and “5 OF 13 / LILE” (the film production received knives 1 though 6) on the reverse. A length of leather cord runs through a machined hole in the guard. The guard shows very light surface tarnishing and the bead blast finish exhibits minor scuffing along the sides of the blade. The leather sheath with snap-closure whetstone pouch is stamped on the backside, “Jimmy Lile / The Arkansas Knifesmith / Russellville, Ark. / 501-968-2011”. Sheath exhibits general scuffing with minor scratches from production use. Obtained from Tom Bronson, costume designer for First Blood, and comes with a signed LOA. Exceedingly rare, this is the only known screen-used “Rambo” knife from First Blood to reach auction. A collector could not hope to find a better and more symbolic piece from this incredibly iconic film character. Estimated Price:$20,000 – $30,000 USD
