An Italian stiletto is what people have in mind when they think switchblade; that's the classic image of this type of firing system. We noticed lately that people tend to call them simply as stiletto knives. Stiletto knives are very common in their country of origin, Italy, where they are carried routinely and considered as a their national pocket knife. The Italian made their stiletto knife with good quality steel because the use it for everything, despite the fact that a stiletto knife is designed for stabbing first and foremost, and to scare the bejeesus in a second. One can easily see that an Italian stiletto has a unique style/design to it among all knives, whether switchblades, automatic or not. It is one of the most collected knives on the planet. Speaking of collectors; stiletto knives in general and the Italian stiletto in particular can be very expensive. Some are pure work of art and the sky is the limit as to their prices. There are 3 major firing systems of stiletto knives; the push button and the leverlock. The first is the classic, most popular one, although the latter is far easier to use and more reliable. There are also major folding styles of Italian stiletto; the regular and the swinguard in which the guard 'swings' down and folds alongside the blade. As to the folding systems, there are 2 majors way to unlock the opened blade; pressing on a lockback back style back handle leaf, the second is the most common yet also the most unknown among stiletto knives; pushing down of the guard's handle firing side unlocks the blade so one can fold it. Italian stiletto, in any case, of any kind is a complicated knife to manufacture and a lot of parts have to work together in sync to display the very impressive blade firing effect. One should check and recheck all stiletto knives upon receiving; even the most expensive might not be as smooth as it is expected from what they cost.
