Whether he's battling the British Navy, sea monsters, ghostly pirates or the dreaded Davy Jones himself, Captain Jack Sparrow wields his cutlass like ferocious deadly lightning. Best to stay clear of that slashing blade, mates.
Cutlasses are a type of sword with single edged, heavy blades made for slashing rather than thrusting. The weapon was favored by men at sea because its shorter length and slightly curved blade was better suited for hand-to-hand fighting in close quarters – like the deck of the Black Pearl.
For filming Pirates of the Caribbean, cutlasses were made in several weights depending on their use. For close ups and non-action scenes, steel was used, while for long shots and lengthy battle scenes, swords were made of lighter aluminum.
Master Replicas is proud to offer this special hero prop replica of Jack Sparrow's Sword as part of the Walt Disney Showcase Collection.
