Stiletto Knives

Stiletto knives were first developed during the 1400s in Italy as a thrusting dagger. In the 1950s, there were many switchblade stiletto, which opened with the push of a button, imported into the U.S. Our stiletto pocket knives have long slender blades and needle-like point. Most stilettos are double edged and are intended to be used primarily as a self defense knife


1950s Stilettos

A large numbers of folding switchblades or automatic opening knives were imported from Italy to the United States during the 1950s. Most of these switchblades were side-opening stilettos and some even used a telescoping blade. These Italian switchblades possessed a slim-profile handle and vestigial cross guard

Assisted Opening Stiletto Knife

Switchblade vs. Assisted Opening

BUDK does not sell automatic or switchblade stilettos. Although many of our stilettos possess gravity, or assisted opening blades which often open as fast as any automatic knife on the market. These knives should be considered just as great of a self defense weapon as a switchblade.

Top Customer Reviews - Stiletto Knives


    • Duke (SC) - Great knife, great price.


      Very sturdy, good quality especially for the price. Reasonably sharp out of the box. Quick and didn't have to immediately adjust screws like a lot of knives built in similar ways. I just ordered a second one because my first one "got lost" when I left it at a friend's house and she moved out. I'm tired of waiting on it to turn up, this was my favorite daily carry! It was a little thicker than I expected but not really an issue. I don't think I've ever had a knife I liked this much that I only paid 10 bucks for.


      Review of: Stiletto FOlder Micarta Black Blade

    • disastertech (oxnard) - Very cool blade


      This is a very cool blade. Unlike the cold steel version (which i like very much) it is more affordable and has a sprung blade so it doesn't come open in your pocket and stab the heck out of your hand when you go to reach for it. It also excites your friends (and strangers) when you whip it out lol. Definitely worth buying.


      Review of: United Cutlery Rampage Stiletto Assisted Open Black

    • zito (VA) - Daaaang


      This is a really sweet knife. The handle looks and feels amazing, the spring assist system is lightning fast. The blade is razor sharp, and the mechanism is so fast you could be fooled into thinking it was a switchblade.


      Review of: Stiletto Folder Imitation Black Pearl Black Blade

    • Felix Medina (Victorville, California) - tight lock


      great knife, very sturdy not as sharp as i expected but a quick sharpening fixed that right up. my order was about a day late and the lock hurts the finger if you open a close the knife repeatedly, in general beautiful knife.


      Review of: Kissing Crane Burnt Bone Damascus Stiletto Folding Knife

    • B. Page (Hastings, Mn) - Great Knife for a Great Price!


      I was very surprised of the quality and craftsmanship of this knife. I must admit I was skeptical but when I opened the box and examined it for the first time I was very impressed. Truly a knife that could be displayed in any collection.
