A stiletto knife is an out-the-front knife in which the pocket knife has a blade that closes and opens from one end of the handle. This is different from the mass of pocket knives available. Most of them are either the usual folding knife or a fixed blade knife without any mechanical operation.
The knife’s blade is released by pressing a lever, button, or some other sort of mechanism. Once the lever or button is pressed, the blade comes out of the front of the handle by a spring or some other sort of tension device. To draw back in the blade, the button, lever etc. is pressed to let the blade slide back into the handle.
