    I have for sale a vintage Italian switchblade. Marked " Estiletto Siciliano"and "Rostrei Italy". It is a whopping 17 3/8" open and 8 3/8" closed. Marbled scales that are brown, black and cream (imitation horn). There is some fine scuffing on the scales that should polish out. No "peeking" of blade tip. The blade is tight (sharpened) and the action is strong. Blade is not exactly in line with handles when open. This is a common condition with stiletto switchblades and in no way detracts from functionality. Brass liners, Swivel bolster closing, stainless steel blade.
    Always stored open.

    These are legal to own in Oregon. And this stiletto is quite collectible due to country of origin, age and condition. Don't miss out on this LARGE switchblade!!

    $250. Shipping extra. Not for sale to states where illegal.

    Added Info:
    Plain blade, swedged top false edge. Appears to have factory sharpening. Shows "swish marks" from opening. These large knives have the old "D" stamped button mechanism, and robust, thick parts. One piece stainless steel back-spring/ kick spring. Probably made by Angelo (grandpa) Campolin Senior (since deceased). They have been made since the 1960's and this one probably dates from the 1990's.
    This lattest info is from a more informed and senior collector...
