Their favourite weapons were sabres, axes and muskets. But we are going to talk only about sabres, which were curved swords designed to cut or wound the enemy. Its shape gave speed to the combat because the weapon stabbed but it didn’t stay into the rival’ s body.


Sabres are thought to come from Asia, but thay have belonged to the european culture for ages. During the pirates times it was a very useful weapon,  due to the necessity of fighting in reduced spaces like ships. If we compare them with infantry sabres, we will see that they have less curvature because pirates needed to defend theirselves blocking hits from the enemy.

Pirates could also have a hand to hand combat if they lose their sabres, that´s why they carried a hidden dagger with a blade of 30 cms, which was as dangerous as the sabre.
