This has become the thread that will not die.
"Stiletto" means long, thin pointed blade. A stiletto can be an OTF or a side opener. This is a common misconception.
but thanks for that info. From your screen name I'm going to assume that you know a little about knives and their construction.
I always thought that stiletto meant other than out the front because if it didn't then my wife's stiletto heels would make no sense at all
