All Genuine European Stilettos here! These old style knives are named stilettos because of the design of the knife. Most stilettos have a dagger type or double edge blade sometimes with a blood groove running down the middle of the blade. The flowing bolsters (the metal piece that sticks out between the handle and the blade), usually made from brass or stainless steel really give these knives that classic stiletto look! These knives are not Automatic Knives or switchblade knives. If you're looking for an auto, please see our Automatic Knives category.
