Pirate Swords, Cutlass & Knives

Pirate swords and cutlasses define the bold buccaneer more than any other weapon. But, what type of blades did pirates use? One was the straight-bladed small sword, which was the perfect thrusting weapon and required some skill to wield. The light spadroon was another that was good for thrust attacks and was also a useful slashing blade. Perhaps the most famous of all pirate weapons is the pirate cutlass. This single-edged, slightly curved or straight sword could hack through ropes, flesh, and bone. In addition, the rapier may have seen action during the initial days of the “Golden Age of Piracy.” Pirate knives included the dagger, which came in handy when fighting in tight spaces or faced with tasks such as cutting sail, rope, or food. Finally, there was the dirk, a smaller version of the dagger, which could also be used as a throwing weapon.

Museum Replicas’ excellent range of pirate swords, cutlasses, and knives are perfect for the re-enactor and the collector. Made with exquisite detail and to last, these weapons would not be out of place in the hazardous seas of the 17th-century. So, whether you are a Captain, First Mate, or Sailing Master, fret not. Our swashbuckling collection offers excellent weapons that even Jack Sparrow would secretly envy. Have doubts about our claim? Check them out now or walk the plank.

Pirate Guns

Most of us do not necessarily associate pirate guns with buccaneers. We envisage pirates with cutlasses and small swords wreaking havoc on a burning ship. But, do not be mistaken. Pirate guns and pistols were essential components of their offensive arsenal. The most commonly used was the flintlock pistol, which ticked all boxes for pirate warfare – small, easy to carry, and perfect for close combat. Then there was the multi-barrelled pistol featuring two or four barrels that were designed to fire separately. Volley pistols were an upgrade on the multi-barrelled pistol in that several barrels could be fired simultaneously. Further, there was the pocket pistol that was small and easy to conceal and fired one shot at a time; these were meant to be used only at close range.

Museum Replicas' collection of non-firing replica pirate pistols includes the classic flintlock, a double barrel, and a dueling pistol, among other fantastic options. All items in this selection are artistically appealing. They are fashioned from a range of materials such as antiqued wood, metal, and faux ivory, and each is exquisitely detailed and made with the utmost care and expertise. Browse through the selection and you will find weapons that will impress even the most experienced seadog. Pick one and come aboard matey.

Review of: The English Cutlass

I purchased this as a Deal of the Day.  As I've already purchased several items from Museum Replicas, I knew I couldn't go wrong with this cutlass.
It arrived quickly and very well packed and protected.  MR is great at shipping their swords securely.
The finish of spectacular.  It looks great and has a wonderful feel.  Nicely balanced, light and easy to control.   As others have suggested, wearing a glove might be a good idea as the handle is smooth and could shift in one's hand.  A glove would offer a more stable grip.  I ordered this sharpened and the edge is very sharp; nicely done.  I keep this one by my bedside.  Woe to the intruder who enters my chambers.

Review of: Scottish Basket-Hilt Cutlass

Received mine a few days ago with MRL's ALWAYS fast and excellent shipping. Being Scottish and German myself makes this cutlass that much more awesome. I was lucky enough to catch this as a deal of the day, however I was literally days away from ordering it at regular price. I also ordered it with the sharpening service, which is honestly my only complaint, the front of the blade is very nicely sharpened, however the 9" back swedge was left dull, which to my understanding was to be sharpened. But no big deal, I have a nice sword sharpener that worked perfectly. On to the sword. Perfection.
Not a single scratch, the edge is perfect, not a stitch out of place, the blade is perfect, the grip is tight and flawless, the fittings are tight and nicely polished, the basket hilt is solid as a rock and also finished nicely, the pommel is perfect and provides more balance. I really am blown away by this one, and I own roughly 25 mid to high end blades. If you have EVER considered buying this cutlass don't waste any more time and grab one, or two! Side note this cutlass is not available from K

Review of: Legend Vest

Sizes trend very small. Got my XL  b/c 2XL ( my shirt size) not available.  12" Gap in front, unable to close.  Doubt a 2XL would be close either,  I am not huge. 2XL shirts suit me fine. Just sayin... otherwise , quality very good.

Review of: Golden Coast Cutlass

This is a cutlass that ErroI Flynn or Basil Rathbone would be proud of!  I purchased the Golden Coast cutlass as part of the Black Friday madness, and I don't regret a doubloon of the purchase price, Matey.  There does not appear to be any of the faux-gold wash on either the half-basket hilt or blade, which IMHO is all to the good:  Why gild the lily?  The blade is very plain, with no fuller and (truth to tell) a "soft" ridge line.  The basket and grip are large enough to accommodate a gauntleted hand, which is one of my litmus tests for a truly functional weapon.  Overall, an admirable rendering of this swashbuckling sword type!

Review of: Scottish Basket-Hilt Cutlass

As I am always looking for the perfect hand-to-hand combat weapon, I was initially disinclined to consider a THREE POUND short sword.  But after reading the reviews (and needing the perfect complement to my pirate outfit), I took the plunge and ordered this magnificent weapon.  Now I am convinced that this may be the perfect weapon.  When I took it out of the box, the fit and finish were as everyone has described it - perfect.  But here is what impressed me.  I stood the box up that it came in.  I figured, "Why not?" and took a swipe. This is an empty, LIGHT cardboard box - not one of those thick paper tubes mounted on a pole they test katanas with, which would have been no problem for this cutlass.  It sliced that box right in two.  Amazing.  Then I took a smaller, lighter box.  Same results.  This thing is incredibly well-balanced. So well balanced, in fact, that it doesn't feel like a three pound sword.  It feels lighter and more maneuverable. And it also feels like it has a shield ATTACHED to it, the hand guard and basket offer such phenomenal coverage.  All that said, if you have a buckler in one hand and this monster in the other, who - short of anyone holding a PIKE - would be inclined to challenge you?
