The Stiletto collection takes its symbolic meaning from the Daggers used in the Renaissance period. Symbolising bravery, courage and protection, the Stiletto knife has a long and rich history spanning the ages.
For centuries, Daggers, Swords and Blades have been used in close contact fighting. Over time, they have come synonymous with courage, valour and bravery. They inspire a "lion heart" and are as frequently seen in modern day symbolism, as much as in the old heralds, and sigils of the past
Through the ages, daggers, knives and stilettos have symbolised a wide variety of meanings.
For Christians, a dagger frequently symbolised martyrdom and sacrifice.
For Buddhists, it has over centuries depicted the cutting away of the bad, thereby leading to the liberation of the good.
In ancient Egypt, they were largely ceremonial objects.
