Manual Opening Stiletto?

Postby MTHall720 » Sun Jun 11, 2017 10:13 pm

This is my first post and am not sure where to ask this question. I live in a state where I can't carry an automatic knife. However, I really like the stiletto style knife. I have had several Cold Steel TiLite versions and do like the looks but want to see if there are any other non-auto opening stilettos. From what I have read it sounds to me like some good vintage brands could be Falcon, and Kissing Crane. I'm looking for a full size blade (4-6 inches for the blade itself), which is very easy to open. I am allowed an assisted opening knife in the State of Maryland, but not the fully automatic knife.

Please recommend something to me.

I appreciate your help.

Hi MT: Have you checked www.sharperdeals.net? There are some manual stilettos there for auction/sale now. Good luck in your search.

None of the manual stilettos is particularly easy to open.

Some of the manuals ones can be flicked open. There are some assisted openers from Asia in the 9" and 11" size that work, but are not great quality.
