Why are Italian Stilettos so dull?

    Not sure but it is most certainly true. I love the older and the better quality new Italian style auto's, but after years of owning them I feel that the traditional design is just not that great. They're cool and perhaps good for stabbing, but that's about it. They don't really cut well or make a good EDC IMO. But they look awesome!

    My smart assed guess would be because they haven't been sharpened.

    It's a stiletto meant for stabbing, not cutting. Also they usually have soft steel, so if you actually were to stab someone (in self defense obviously haha) the blade would be less likely to break if it hit a rib or something. With such a thin blade, hard steel would be brittle it would break very easily if you hit a rib.

    While not a true Italian Stiletto protechs are always sharp as hell. I would not want to be cut from my flyfather which is the same shape as the godfather line, and also you have there don line.

    Stilettos can be sharpened effectively, however they are designed as visually intimidating daggers.

    I don’t remember where or when, but I remember reading that they were designed for fishermen to do two things, assist in undoing knots in rope & cutting nets in emergencies. The button was so they could do this quickly & easily w/one hand. I guess the nets are thin & easy to cut. I wish I could remember where I read this, but it was many years ago.
