Venetian Stiletto - 400994
This Venetian Stiletto has a unique triangular 1055 high carbon steel blade with a beautifully hollowed face. Modeled after a wickedly attractive stiletto from Doge's Palace. Wood grip. Sheath included. Overall length 13-3/4 inches.
On a trip to Venice we were touring the Doge’s Palace and admiring the weapons when a particularly beautiful stiletto caught our eye, which we have reproduced here. Centuries old, its elegantly crafted contours and unique triangular blade were obviously shaped by a master; for the dagger shone with a positively happy wickedness. Stilettos come in many sizes, from delicate little hideout weapons to forthright long daggers suitable for use even as a main gauche, but this is certainly one of the more attractive ones we’ve come across. Blade face is beautifully hollowed. Grip is wood. Stiletto comes complete with sheath.
