Growing up everyone has heard tales of all the famous pirates. Blackbeard, Captain Hook, Long John Silver, and all the buccaneers. Probably became widely thought of from the story "Treasure Island", specifically from the character "Long John Silver".
However, pirates rarely commanded superior vessels, in fact, most often pirates commanded small lightly armored but highly maneuverable ships. For this reason, pirates seldom relied on fire power. Instead, pirates generally preferred to quickly board the enemy ship, robbing of goods, and rapidly retreating. Often, pirates would be greatly outnumbered, but because pirates employed various scare tactics, such as very well hand crafted swords they paralyzed their victims with fear.
Pirate Cutlass Pirate Sword is 26" overall with a 19 1/4" stainless steel blade. The handle provides excellent grip, and is a molded composite with copper wire wrappings. A beautiful red tassel hangs from the handle, and can be removed if so desired.
This sword also comes with a custom leather sheath for storage and transportation.
