Pirate Swords, Cutlasses & 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.

Review of: Damascus Sgian Dubh Raider Knife

This is my first edged weapon from MR, so I was very excited considering the quality that I was expecting. I misread the dimensions on this, so this turned out to be much larger than I thought it would be. No complaints on the size though.

1st, the dagger. It essentially looks as it does in the photo. Since this is handmade you know to expect minor differences and I'm not disappointed. It is amazingly light to hold and even though it appears to have been sharpened, the cutting edge is rather dull, not a big deal. Sharpening a knife is rather easy. It does have a razor sharp point and easily pierced many cardboard boxes I have. I haven't tried it on anything thicker yet as I don't want to risk damaging the tip. Based on how sturdy the knife feels, I have no doubt this would pierce clothing and flesh quite well if I was forced to use it for self-defense.

2nd, the sheath. Since this is my first experience with old-world craftsmanship when it comes to medieval styled weapons, I don't have much to compare it to. The knife sits loosely in the sheath and the strap is the only thing that will hold it in place if you decide to walk around with this on your belt. Otherwise I feel this would fall out very easily. The sheath's construction seems decent, but I'm unsure at this point how well I would rate the quality since I haven't had the time to use it on a day-to-day basis.

Overall as a combo I'm giving this five stars.

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: The English Cutlass

The quality of materials used to make this Cutlass are excellent along with the price. The blade is good steel. The length of the grip will only fit very small hands. The grip length needs to be increased by at least one inch to fit a medium to large hand. As is, the Cutlass is unusable. If this weapon is for display only, it gets a 5. If it were to be used as a true Cutlass, it gets a 1. The brass basket curves back and presses on the first finger and knuckle  painfully due to the short grip. I own a large collection of swords purchased from MRL. This is a keeper for display only. The sheath fits the blade well but the brass tip on the sheath was so pointed and sharp I had to round the tip with a stone for safety reasons. My advice for MRL is to make sure your Quality Control Department gets more involved in sizing specifications.
