There’s a good reason why the Mafia is one of the most dangerous crime syndicates in history. Brutal and unmerciful, Mafia hitmen would snuff out their enemies with a unique set of weapons.
Short, concealable, and brutally effective, the ice-pick was the go-to weapon when surprise was critical. It is shown here next to a variant of the ice-pick family, the mason's screwdriver.
With a quick thrust, an assassin could drive an ice-pick through a victim’s skull, causing a painful and lingering death.
Stiletto: a name synonymous with Mob violence, and my all-time favorite type of knife.
Featuring a snap -open or telescoping blade, Stilettos were used to punch holes through the lungs, heart, stomach, and other vital organs of a victim.
A cigar, thrown in as a bonus. I’m especially proud of the chewed-up end :)
