Reminiscent of the knives of the 1950s gangsters, this stiletto is the perfect gentleman's knife! The lightning-fast assisted opening mechanism will leave you astonished when you use it to access the razor sharp 3 3/4" AUS-6 stainless steel blade. The knife has a premium black Micarta handle and black stainless steel bolsters and pocket clip. The stiletto is 8 3/4" in overall length.
I think that I've already done a review. I like it so much that I bought 3 extra "just because". I've carried a knife since I was a kid, and I'm now almost 74 so I know a good bit about knives. #1 - Really good knife for the price #2 - not super great steel, but sharpens well & holds an edge pretty good #3 - the best knife I have in this style except for some high-end switchblades that I own #4 - as in other reviews, spend a few $$ and get some TORX drivers to tighten the screws, but BE CAREFUL not to strip or overtighten them. #5 - lightly lubricate it with some silicon/teflon liquid available at Lowes. #6 - a bit too big for my EDC though I do carry it periodically just to impress my friends BOTTOM LINE: If I didn't already have 4, I'd buy another one of these. ????
I bought this as a gift for myself and I expected to get what I paid for. I was expecting a knife that would fall apart with a bit of use and I am genuinely pleased with this knife. It is my everyday carry knife and it has so far held up very well. It feels very nice in the hand and anytime I pull it out and show it off everyone says it is beautiful.
I first purchased one of these several years ago when they were thumb-knob openers marked "Rough Rider". The only difference was that the blade wasn't anodized black, like these. The Micarta gives a far superior grip that the more ornate handles cannot, especially when wet, the cross-bar is perfect for keeping your hand off of the blade in a push. The pocket clip is on the butt-end, putting the anvil blade-to-handle down in the pocket, so that when you push the knife up through the fabric of the pocket it ends up in the ready-to-open and use position very quickly. I purchased several of these and have really put them through tough utility, taking a long time to wear one out enough to give to a Bud and get a fresh one out of the drawer. My only complaint is that the blade could be 4", then I would purchase a couple dozen more and leave them in pockets. Excellent tool, excellent design.
This is one of the nicest knives I have ever owned for the money. I like them so much I have given several of them to my friends as gifts. I would definitely tell anyone to buy one and if you don't like it I would be greatly suprised.
Very fast opening. Excellent micarta handle. Very cool black blade. Good purchase. Just what I was looking for in a stiletto.
Good knife. I had mine for about a year or so, and I plan on buying again. I took it around everywhere and it didn't have many problems, but the screws did get loose after awhile from lots of opening and closing. I just made a trip to Home Depot and bought a small, affordable case of screwdriver tips. The sizes are T8 and T6, I believe. Mine finally broke because I accidentally tightened it too much, and it wouldn't flick open. When I loosened it I did it too much so some of the screws started to fall out, and I lost a few pieces. In conclusion, the knife itself is really good, just make sure you're careful about how you handle it.
Got this Micarta knife a week ago! Solid body, nice and heavy---but wieldy! I haven't tried sharpening it yet, because it seems sharp enough for now. I dig the old school gangster-style look! You might wanna loosen in and oil the mechanism a bit to make it easier to flick open. I messed a bit with the blade on the locking area, bu Dremel-grinding a bit off for the lock to bite deeper, now it has a bit of play, but it is still a good knife for the surprisingly low price . I love BudK knives and have like 17 of them now. Enjoy!
Decent knife. When it came in blade was dull so it needed sharpened also i paid 5 bucks for engraving which they didn't do
This is a fantastic knife blade holds edge very well. Is a heavy knife that opens well with the assist and feels like a heavy high quality knife. Will be a great carry knife for anybody and well worth the price. Very satisfied and would definitely recommend to my friends and suggest giving it as a great Christmas Present.
This is a fantastic knife for the price, a solid similar heavy knife but good solid grip and excellent pointed one sided blade. Sharp and classy looking, I have bought two and ordered one for a friend in Arizona and decided to order a 3rd one for me. This is how much I think of this knife ??.
I like it a lot. Opens fast, works well with either hand and has a good edge. Only sharp on one side so it is not like a spear point knife. I'm looking for another about the same size with a spear point but after reading reviews ones that look good seem to have hit or miss quality control. This one came out perfectly.
Looks are a 10. She's big! The handle is beefy. The blade is long and thin. Classy heavy sharp knife. After a few moments of hand sharpening she was the sharpest knife I owned
Has a great feel to it very nice weight and grip the assisted opening is great worked better than I thought very sharp out of the box favorite knife in my whole collection after I got it I bought another one to collect and one to carry all around great knife
I purchased this knife primarily for my job at a produce store because i wanted something fast, elegant, and something I could open with one hand -a step up from my clumsy Swiss army knife. I can open boxes, cut through packaging, and unwrap pallets of produce quickly and easily with the great-looking knife I have come to swear by. All said, this knife is incredibly sturdy, and the only issue I could find was that it needed a bit of sharpening upon un-boxing. It's a must have, especially for the money. It's my trusty sidekick and I find myself looking for every opportunity to use it!
I had some doubts after reading a couple negative reviews, but once I got it I loved it. Opened quick, nice sharp blade, and feels nice in your hands. Just take care of it and it'll last a real good amount of time
Great knife for the price. Quality, weight and style are nice. Smooth opening and closing. Very sharp blade. Over all a nice knife for the price.
I really like this knife, it is well made and very fast! Razor-sharp stainless steel blade! For under $10 you can't go wrong! When I can get FREE shipping, with no purchase amount manditory! I almost always buy something. If I have to pop $40 to get FREE, I just don't buy!
$10 knife-at this price this knife is great. Construction tight, nothing loose. Too big and heavy for the pocket, clip helps. Knife a bit hard to flip open. With practice it is getting easier. Feels like it would handle some tough work-heavy & solid. After reading other reviews that were disappointing for the purchasers I took a chance anyway and glad I did. The only quality comment is the clip, it was a bit rough on the surface, like it had corrosion before plating. I lightly buffed it with steel wool-that took care of it. Hopefully there is quality control in place now that can catch the rejects.
Great knife! Got a pair during a BOGO sale. Very pleased. Gave one to my wife as a Birthday gift, she loves it. Fast and smooth action on both. Very sharp out of the box. A++
This knife has a good feel and opens easily and quickly. Refolds easily. Sharp blade, attractive piece.
When I received this knife in the mail I was really surprised. It's well built and the weight of the knife really surprised me too. The assisted opening functions very well, so overall I gave this a 5 star rating.
I picked up two of these on sale for $5.00 each. For the money, I don't think you can beat this knife. It was larger than I expected- in a good way- and has very nice scales. Based on other reviews, I used a bit of lock tight on the screws just in case- but as they arrived they were flawless. Both of these open and function cleanly and smoothly. The blades came very sharp. I gave one to my son and have carried mine now for almost a week. After use the blade can be honed back to razor sharp in just a few strokes. If I could ask for changes it would be to have a pocket clip that is a bit more slim and does not stand off the handle as far, but that is just my preference. I gave this knife 5 stars for its value- $5.00 is a great price for this blade. The style is timeless Italian Stiletto and it is sure to catch your buddies attention when they see it.
i am a big fan and collector of knives and BUDK is my favorite site, the knife has a great spring, its beautiful, and it slides far enough into the handle so that if you have a grinder you can sharpen the other side, not to mention that its razor sharp and over all is GREAT!
Solid knife for the price. Blade came very sharp. Action is quick and smooth.
Good buy for presents to knife lovers!! Gave 4 for XMAS!! The torx screws back out some!! Easy fix! Lock tight! Thank you for a good business that cares about buyers!!
this is a awesome knife it is amazingly fast at opening i carry it with me everywhere.I strongly recommend this knife it's an amazing perches and the price is so low and well worth the money
Being a Chicagoan, I feel this style pocket knife is one of the only pocket knife worth getting. I'm a snob about them too. I give this five stars, because upon receiving it I was absolutely blown away by how well the assisted mechanism works, how well it was constructed (for 10 measly bucks?) and how chunky it feels in your hand. It's a great self defense tool for roaming bad urban neighborhoods, and can pierce just about anything that you're going to pierce with a knife. Most assist opening stilettos go bad quickly, or you have to tighten them. I haven't had to tighten this once in the two years I've owned it, but a few of the little screws that hold in the micarta have fallen out (but they can be replaced, as can this low cost knife.) Overall, this knife exceeded my expectations upon receiving it, and still holds up to this day as being a fully functional self defense tool. You don't need to be an Italian hit-man to carry this either; it's a classic for a reason (though I tend to carry the United Cutlery assist opening karambit, because its blade length falls within local ordinances.) For mobster fans, you'll miss the little button that shoots open the knife automatically, but only for a second, as you'll find this particular assist mechanism actually moves the blade faster, and can withstand more abuse, than any historically accurate piece could possibly offer.
This knife has a very sturdy and thick metal frame. the assisted opening works very smoothly.
I bought this knife for a friend, he's enjoying the knife very much. No problems with the knife, the picture doesn't do it justice, very cool looking knife.
You can't find a better stilleto, especially at that price point. Strong,good looking, sharp, and the Micarta scales are worth the price of the entire knife.
Great balance and very sharp. I bought two, one for a friend and one for myself.We are both happy with the quality.
5 stars easily. Heavy, large, thick knife. I've stabbed straight through drywall with it and it's still needle sharp. Like some of the other reviews have said,the screws have come out of the grips, one screw on one side, but they're simple hex screws like you'd need a really tiny allen wrench to tighten. Great knife, and for 10 bucks the quality is simply astounding. Thanks BUDK!
NICE AND HEAVY. BETTER THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE. FAIRLY SHARP RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX. WELL WORTH THE MONEY. OPENING AND CLOSING IS REAL EASY.
Way better than I thought. Heavier and bigger. Sometimes I order knives and they are smaller than what I thought they were, this was not the case with this one. Heavy, Sturdy, and Smooth operating. Nice Knife!
You know your dealing with a cool knife the minute you open the box.this knife is sharp and stylish. It's a throw back to the old days for a fraction of the cost. I got a couple of these in different colors as well.
Very sturdy, good quality especially for the price. Reasonably sharp out of the box. Quick and didn't have to immediately adjust screws like a lot of knives built in similar ways. I just ordered a second one because my first one "got lost" when I left it at a friend's house and she moved out. I'm tired of waiting on it to turn up, this was my favorite daily carry! It was a little thicker than I expected but not really an issue. I don't think I've ever had a knife I liked this much that I only paid 10 bucks for.
big enough to fit the hand to be used as a cubaton. Heavy enough to fit hand like a roll of nickels.Appear to be descent quality,and durable.use thread loc on all screws on all folders
Very nice stiletto knife with open assist feature! The blade was razor sharp right out of the box. Surprisingly heavier than I expected for a $10 purchase! Hence, a sweet stiletto for a sweet price!
got it earlier i've been fiddling with it all day one of the side slabs is loose but i'll take both of those off and superglue them on. it came sharp enough and there is no blade play the pocket clip is on a convenient place i would probably pay about 30 for it if i had gotten it from a store
I ordered this knife from a different store,It was 50.00$,I mean the same exact knife, and on here it was 10 bucks! Works awesome, Super-sharp, i couldn't ask for a better knife.
This is a knife that creates jealousy in all who see it. Everyone I have shown it to has asked to buy it from me (and I almost sold it!). I was offered $50 for it, but being an honest guy I told them it was only $10 at BUDK. I enjoy the weight, speed of opening, and looks of this knife. The only issue I have (and I fixed it with a couple of shorter screws) is the clip on the knife. This is not the kind of knife you clip to your pants or belt, it is a pocket knife and should be kept in a pocket. Other than the clip, I love this knife and so will you! I recommend buying at least 5. That way you can keep a couple and sell a few to your friends who will be dying to own one as soon as they see yours.
Nice knife! Hefty weight and well made. I bought two, one for my son and one for me and we are both well pleased. Thanks BUDK!
this knife is not just a crappy $10 knife. i bought this for a freind for xmas and i can honestly say i am jealous. this knife is pretty tough and awsome looking...only complaint i have is that the opening mechanism can hurt your finger if you open it a lot but you only need to open it once to use it so i guess its fine. overall amazing knife and not just for the money. compared to my $60 knives, it is a great competitior
For the price, it destroys all other deals! Best pocket knife EVER!!! ( Only prob: Clip is a pain in the a**. Cant really get a comfortable grip wit the clip, but its easy to remove, so all is perfect.)
Awesome knife, came super sharp with the spring mechanism working great! Absolutely no blade play, this knife is killer, literally. pick one up today, for ten bucks this knife is amazing!
Just got this knife and it rocks! Looks cool, sturdy and well built, nice weight. Can't beat the price, an awesome buy!
This an amazing stiletto for ten bucks! It comes out fast and is very sturdy.
This knife is very, very cool. I received it an hour ago and i am very impressed with it. I like this knife a lot because it is very, very big. It is heavy (a good kind of heavy). This knife is not a gentleman's knife at all. All in all i think BUDK did a great job with this knife.
great knife already comes a little sharp but I'm take care of that with my stone tomorrow, it looks awesome the handle is a really fine sturdy wood n whole body is metal a good weight to it an is a blast to flick open,oh yeah for 10$???do u like knives? of course u do.. get it
This knife is everything i wanted, and more. i searched the budk website for the perfect knife, and this is definitely it! the blade length is perfect, the size of the handle is perfect for my hand, and it flips out fast with a razor sharp edge. the only downside i find to it, is the way you have to press your thumb or forefinger to flip the blade. at first it feels a little awkward, but before long, it feels perfect! Amazing, inside and out!
This knife is fantastic!!! A bit heavier than i expected, but that's no problem. Other than that it is amazing!
This knife is flippin amazing my son always wanted a switchblade, but they are illegal in our state, so I got him this I didnt know he would like it so much! It comes out fast. The only flaw is that the handle is not like it is on the picture other than that it is intimidating. Thanks Budk for an amazing product.
I order very intimidating big knifes and this one pocket knife and it was the highlight of my order slightly dull but no problem.
This knife was a total surprise, excellent quality, heavy solid feel, with a razor sharp single edge stiletto blade that snaps open easily, with a liner lock. It would be a solid buy at 3 times the price. I'll be ordering more to give to my sons and friends.
I got this as an addition to my order, only to find it the highlight of my package. This thing has some great weight behind it, just makes you feel so powerful holding it. Its not double-edge so I can even carry it legally, which is great!
Superior knife for all-purposes. This little black stiletto is the lord of stilettos. Best buy for the price tag.
I disagree with the description given to this stiletto, it isn't a gentleman's knife at all. This knife is for burly truck drivers and other tough guys! I couldn't believe the quality and the blade is super sharp and comes out fast!(ask my thumb) The knife is larger than I thought it would be. It is thick, heavy, very solid, with an absolute positive lock-up blade made to last a lifetime of hard use and the black Micarta handle is beautiful, fit and finish! I am not a tough guy but was definitely impressed with this stiletto the moment I took it out of the box. This is a heavy duty quality knife made for heavy duty guys, if you're a gentleman forget it.
so to start the pocket clip while useful but it did not work that well and whenever i held the knife it would dig into my right hand and it was very annoying while not very bad it was still noticeable and im trying to have it removed the pocket clip. Also it had arrived with some of the paint being scraped off and along with scratches on the handle and the last thing was the thing that releases the blade when you want to put the blade back into the handle would sometimes lock up and require a lot of force to put it back but other than those issues good knife very pointy
Just got mines today! It's quite heavy and has a really sharp edge! The only problem I have with it is the assisted opening! It doesn't open all the way, maybe because it has lube all in it?
THIS KNIFE APPEARED MUCH FASTER AND BETTER QUALITY THAN ANY SWITCHBLADE I HAVE HELD. ACTUALLY IT IS QUITE A GOOD BUY FOR THE PRICE. BUT THE BLADE SEEMS VERY SMALL AND THIN.
It's a great knife for the price. The handle is a little bit loose and has weird screws but nothing impossible. It is stylish, sharp, and fun to play around with. This knife feels like it came right out of the Outsiders, very classic looking. Also a pretty good weight to it.
This is a great knife for a low cost! The blade is sharp, it's sturdy and a great flat black finish. The only problem I had is the micarta Handel is a little wobbly but screwing it down will do the trick. The screw doesn't like to stay though and I usually have to screw it back down once or twice a day. It isn't a big problem though.
I bought 3 for $5 each. They are very good stilettos for the price. Their assisted opening mechanisms work great. I give them a 4 star rating because all 3 knives had 2 screws that were stripped and loose and I had to repair them with super glue.
I bought this knife for me and my son. We are both avid knife collectors. For the money you cant go wrong
You need to work on the screws, my knifes screws fell out. But other than that its a great sturdy knife.
Very good knife for the money. The only thing I had to do is put some loc-tite on the screw for the blade. No problems with anything else.
The blade is great and it fits nicely in my hand. The spring works well and it came sharp out of the box. I bought one for me and one for my best friend. It's a bit heavy but it evens out. My only complaint is that the little tiny screws are a bit loose and several ended up falling out. I tightened them up except for one got stripped out and now I lost it.
The knife is of good quality I did take the clip of the action is very chrisp on locks up vwry well. I have ordered two more for gifts.
This knife if very slick looking and has good durability... No regrets buying this knife, it's well worth the $
This was my first stilletto and on the first opening, it seemed a bit stiff, but it loosened up after a few tries and works beautifully. Great knife in most regards, but it comes a bit dull, though that shouldn't be a problem with a spear-point blade anyways. The only real problem I have encountered with it is that after a while, the grip on mine began to bend inward a bit, But it seems like an easily repairable issue (given you have a small enough star-tip screwdriver). Because of the dull blade (which was honestly expected) and a weak (but easily fixable) frame, it's a great knife.
Very nice knife, throw back to the old stilettos. Only complaint is the clip. Clip on the knife is very stiff and makes it hard to get out of your pocket. Plus side to it is you will not easily loose it because of the clip. Well worth the money after you resharpen the blade.
I just received this knife yesterday & have to say that for $10 I'm impressed. Feels good in the hand, others have said they couldn't hold it comfortably with the clip but I don't have a problem with it. Since I also purchased the Boker Magnum I can say that they're pretty much the same size, it even fit in the cutout in the Boker box. I usually carry a Leatherman Skeletool but wanted just a simple knife to carry since I always have my Wave in my truck, this will definitely fit the bill. I can't give it 5 stars yet because I haven't had a good chance to use it, and the finish on one side looks already worn, other than that it appears to be "tip-top."
best pocket knife I've ever used or owned but when I got it the blade was a little warped.
When I first got the knife it was very sharp out of box. But then when I used it alot, part of the handle was moving up and down. Finally one day it became so loose one screw came out and part of the handle hung off. Overall though the Knife is very sharp but be prepared to get new screws.
Bought these on bogo and while I love the knife I found that the blade lock is a piece of sp**ge! If your now worried about the blade closing on your fingers slicing half of them in the process then by all means get this knife! I would prefer a knife I can trust!
I bought 10 of these as Xmas gifts. They seem to be ok, but I don't like how the finger assist doesn't stick out much farther than the guards so it makes it a bit harder to get your finger on to get it opened. I got them on a BOGO, so I can't really complain, but if I was paying retail I would spend a bit more and get a nicer knife...
I bought four of these to give as gifts, and I gotta say, they are really nice to look at. The tips were super sharp and weren't that difficult to sharpen. But there were some problems. The spring on one knife wouldn't work at all and it wouldn't lock properly when opened. On two of them, the locks were extremely difficult to undo. Only one of the four was perfect, for me of course. If anything, get this knife. It's a nice piece to own. Just hope that you get a good one.
This knife disappointed me a little bit. The blade comes sharp out of the box, but it wouldn't hurt to sharpen it a bit more. The "micarta" is actually plastic, and when I opened mine out of the box, the handle was all scratched up! That, and the bolsters looked like they were salvaged from a much older, much more used stiletto. The screws that were holding the knife together were stripped and I couldn't find a screwdriver that would fit! The blade is great, but it took no time to turn a sturdy knife into a wobbly, used piece of junk. I bought other stilettos with the imitation pearl handles, and they were 100% better! the moral here is, you get what you pay for, and with 10 bucks, you shouldn't expect much.
It was a good knife for the first couple of days. Then I notice a few screws were loose on the "Micarta" side. Using some glue, I was able to repair it but I won't be using it any time soon.
The blade itself was good, but after opening it twice, the blade got stuck because the locking mechanism skipped past the blade, and wedged itself on the far side, becoming completely stuck. I am currently trying absolutely everything in my power to colse it again, so that I can send it back. The handle also came quite loose, and I'm afraid that it would break if I tried to use it. I might have just gotten a defective item, but I simply cannot recommend it based off of my experiences.
You are only rolling the dice when you buy something at a dicounted price.Perhaps some are good others are not and with the ten dollar price tag it is not worth the trouble of sending it back lol . Mine had stripped srcews everywhere. The pocket clip fell off as did one side of the handle. I ordered other items along with the knife problems there as well. I have to admit having a problem pulling the trigger on another order even though you seem to offer some pretty cool items.
this knife sucks do not buy. not even after two weeks of having it the whole thing is just falling apart! the screws are just falling out of place the blade is loose piece of crap!
We won't be able to ship this item until we receive more stock. But don't worry, we've found a similar item that's ready to ship now.
