Stilettos by Bill Stroman
Original: 16th century Europe
Each stiletto has a slender three-sided blade that tapers into a pin-like point. The hollow-ground edges of the triangular blades are sharpened, creating a fierce weapon capable of cutting with the thrust.
The larger one is 16.375" overall, has a 11.625" long blade and has a grip made of buffalo horn. The smaler is 10.25" overall, has a 5.375" long blade and a grip made of cocobolo wood. Both have brass fittings and leather sheaths.
Maker: Bill Stroman.
