You might think that this was primarily a dagger for a female in need of protecting, but this was a fasionable dagger to carry by men as well.
Thought it might look a little diminutive, the blade is a triangle blade. This blade style was meant for one thing and one thing only, to kill.
There is no edge that could be used to eat with or anything. The idea of carrying a tool meant solely for killing was a social status, especially when the stiletto is so handsomely decorated.
The blade is made of en45 High Carbon steel and the handle has been antiqued for a great look.
Because the nature of the thin blade, it should not be banged against hard objects in attempt to "test" the blade.
Torquing the blade could result in damage.
