The natural luster and beauty of abalone shell is enhanced in this traditional stiletto from Frank B. The satin finish, dagger blade, and the nickel silver swinguard, bolsters, and buttons give this knife star-quality shine. Brass pins and liners are evidence of the long tradition of Italian knife making. The push button releases the blade with quick, smooth action, and lock up is solid. This is a beautiful way to begin or enhance your Italian collection.
