Corsica is a large island off the southern coast of France. It’s famous for giving birth to the concept of the “Vendetta” or blood feud. Corsica’s modern political climate is rather stable now, but in centuries past it was anything but. Justice was almost unknown and taking it into one’s own hands was the only route available. On many occasions a minor insult would escalate into entire families and even villages feuding for many years! One vengeful murder would spawn another and, while firearms were often involved, it was the knife, or more particularly, the easily concealed Stiletto, with its long thin blade and narrow sharp point, that became the weapon of choice.
