That's a user/keeper. I would like to carry that in a custom holster/sheath. If that has the D2 steel companion blade, so much the better. (A D2 steel swedged blade should hold a better edge under rigorous use).

It's part of my collection, I don't carry or use any of my switches. It does have NS bolsters but, botton and saftey are SS , and I asked Jeremy if he knew if it was D2 blade, to which he didn't know.

Most stilettos aren't very useful outside of their original "thrusting" purpose. The swedge blade works much better as a "multi-purpose" blade. The D2 holds a great edge and can be put to use in the field as well as personal defense. During the 2013 period, Frank Beltrame made a "convertible" Humpback that could change blades. This made the knife useful.

This is why I asked.
