A Quick Peek into the History of Stiletto Knife
A stiletto knife, sometimes included in the list of daggers, was invented somewhere in Italy around the late 15th century. Long after its invention, people still love buying stiletto blades as self defense weapons and other utility purposes. It’s easy to believe when historians tell us that Italian stiletto knives were popular blades back in the day. As a matter of fact, not only the knights use it as their second weapon but the people operating in the shadows, such as assassins, preferred keeping this thrusting knife on hand for easy concealment and quick striking. Why was it being used in such a manner? Let’s talk about its design to make you understand the point further.
An Italian stiletto knife initially had a round narrow blade with a needle like pointed tip. But, that’s not the case as after centuries of amendments or betterments in the design, the blade is so very different and much more efficient now. How did these changes to the stiletto occur?
You can say it was the First World War that asked for such a blade to rise over all others. With everything that was going on in the war, a quick stabbing knife or weapon was required. Making the re-emergence of stiletto knives, and a number of cool daggers, almost unstoppable. If you have read our previous blogs, you might just remember how we told you about trench knives being invented in WWI for the very same reasons.
During WWI, the stiletto was put to great use in the form of combat knives for raiding forces of commandos, and other similar strike teams, which needed to strike down their enemies as silently as possible. One famous fighting dagger, developed by two British combat instructors in 1940, became useful as a great thrusting and slashing weapon with its double edged blade. Variations of the dagger came out soon after, giving birth to US Marine Raider Stiletto and another smaller needle like blade called US V-42 stiletto, which was optimized for mostly thrusting and not cutting.
Then the 1950s arrived, bringing along with it switchblades and different types of folding knives for people still ripe with the memories of the Second World War. The automatic knives were imported from Italy given their high demand at that time. While, most of these switchblades opened from the side unlike modern stiletto knives that have more of an out-the-front design for unleashing the Italian stiletto blade inside. By this period, most switchblades were using a bayonet style blade with one false edge (sharpened) and the other sabre-grind edge (usually unsharpened). Earlier, there existed only fixed blade stiletto knives but with switchblades people could finally have the opportunity to get their hands on folding pocket knife version of the stiletto.
Even to this day, Italy and a number of other countries are making stiletto switchblades for all the enthusiasts out there. The demand for these cool blades is enough to make us offer a great variety of spring assisted stiletto knives for sale among other variations of the blade.
