Stiletto 2

Stilettos were a dagger with a very slim, long blade that came to a sharp, needle-like point. They were designed as a thrusting weapon and, due to their small size, they could be easily hidden in clothing. The tapering, triangular shape of the blade would have allowed for a deep level of bodily penetration. However, despite their suitability as an offensive weapon, many stilettos served as a fashion accessory. This stiletto has an ornate hilt with drooping quillons, leading to blade with a triangular cross-section.
