Italian Switchblade: an example of Italian Stiletto Switchblade

An example of Italian Switchblade by Lelle Floris

SwitchbladeExample of Italian Switchblade or Italian Stiletto: the Molise automatic knife for self-defense; created by Lelle Floris whose origin dates back to the early 800s and from the parts of Campobasso and Frosolone.

As you can see from pictures, the dimensions of this italian automatic switchblade knife are notable when compared to the hands of an adult. Once opened, it exceeds 33 cm and illustrates its aggressiveness.

The blade is equipped with a second cutting edge that also enables the use of the tip as well as for cutting, and the handle is made of ram's horn.

The blade ends with a coupling pin, which is inserted in the head of the retaining spring that allows the blade to remain locked in the open position, and the handle ends with a classical “S” guard that doesn’t allow the hand to slide toward the blade during the use of the switchblade in the penetration phase, thus avoiding injuring the person holding the knife.

To open the blade, this italian switchblade should be held in a way so as not to give resistance to the exit of the blade from the handle and, at the same time, the button housed on the outside of the cheek must be pressed (this is more agile for right-handers).

Unlike switchblades built in the italian city of Maniago, in this automatic knife the bracket that leads from the button opening to the hole in the blade is external and not concealed within the handle.

This particularity allows us to create very thin switchblades, even in the face of substantial sizes in length. A thin knife could be easily concealed under clothing, placed in special pockets sewn on the inside of tabards or jackets.

By pressing the button opening, the hook at the end of the bracket rises and frees the blade, which by means of the spring assist, is quickly expelled outwards, allowing the opening of the switchblade with one hand.

It should be noted that unlike other switchblade knives this model is not equipped with a safety...a truly aggressive small object.
