Jasper-- From my vantage point, ie., I just cannot see a Victorinox having a "sharp point" per se. The outer edge is too smooth and dull until it reaches the ground cutting edge to be considered a "pointed" blade.
There are Kbars and Bucks that are pointed, and fitted with blades of less than 4 inches; to say nothing of switchblades, legal and illegal.
I can accept a verbal description of a knife being "stiletto" to indicate a longish, thin bladed knife with an acute sharp point; with one or even both cutting edges honed to a fine cutting edge.
However, open bladed long knives are a bitch to carry without a sheath, ankle, thigh, arm, waist, etc. A pocket carried switch blade or butterfly knife makes more sense and meets criteria detailed in autopsy and trial testimony. Those knives have the heft and usually the heavier butt weight to effect a stun, would you agree?
From: Jasper <ship> Intra nos, So far Iím the only one I know who has said one killer used two knives. Some of the wounds left a pattern characteristic of a doubled-edged blade. Some were characteristic of a single-edged blade (with a sharp point).
