Stiletto Knives - - Items tagged as "Fantasy knives"
Stiletto knives were originally created in Italy in the 1400s as a thrusting dagger. More recently in the 1950s they became widely popular style of switchblades. These Stiletto style knives all have a slender blade and a needle-type point, and many of the stilettos have a vestigial cross guard. They're meant to be a self defense weapon. Although, they're also an almost requirement for any knife collector. Note, not all are automatic knives; some are regular folders, gravity assisted or may be automatic.
