Italian Knives in the Movies

Italian stilettos are definitely one of my favorite types of knives , and I especially love spotting them in movies and TV shows! Here are some movies that feature Italian knives. While I was hunting for Italian knives in the movies, I was surprised to find a couple of Christmas-related scenes with stilettos! Consider that my holiday gift to you. (You’re welcome.)

Below is a compilation of some Italian-style knives in the movies. It’s definitely not an exhaustive list; it would be impossible to include every movie with an Italian knife in one post. Instead, consider this more of a sampling of movies with Italian-style knives in it. There will be more of these posts in the future, so if you know of any other movies that feature Italian knives or any knives in general, be sure to mention them in the comments section below and we’ll try to include them in the next knives in the movies post.
