    Not sure how old it is. Stamped INOX on one side of base of blade and ‘Italy’ with ‘Stiletto’ below it. The handle shows wear with some chew marks on it. Works smoothly. My question: does anyone know if it is worth having the handles replaced? And anyone local do that kind of work? Addendum: it certainly gets your attention when it opens up prematurely while still in your pocket.

    Doesn't "inox" mean stainless steel,,,
    as in in-oxidizable?

    It will probably be more valuable with the original stocks,,,
    The side I can see doesn't look all that bad.

    I used to carry one like that. You gotta keep the lock on, AND arrange the knife in your pocket so gravity holds the lock mechanism down. Otherwise that distinctive “snickt” will happen in your pocket!

    That looks like one of the bigger ones? I think most were in the 4 inch range closed. Is this the longer 6 inch-ish version?

    E2F85E08-4F32-423A-AC42-3199D2313F44.jpeg Almost 11in opened. The blade is about 5-6in. Forgot the other side.

    Sir, step away from the toolbox!
    Yep, I believe that's why the stainless Beretta 92 was the INOX version.
    (Beretta snobs will be along in a minute to correct me. Off topic but there are apparently a gazillion different variations of the pistol to interest collectors.)

    I’m curios of the value too. I’ve got one of the bigger ones and a few of the smaller ones.

    Ohh man I can't tell you how many of those I ruined trying to take the comb out and using the spine and super glue and or JB weld to sandwich a steak knife blade in it.
