With a new Pirates Of The Caribbean movie coming out this summer (along with a ton of other sequels), the team at Baltimore Knife And Sword have catered to demands to create a pirate cutlass. How they do it is what makes this episode interesting. Ilya Alekseyev, the armorer who won on History Channel’s Forged In Fire, brings his own challenge to three of the swordsmiths, including show co-host and forge co-owner Matt Stagmer. Each swordsmith creates their own cutlass in their own style. So for this episode we see three different ways to create a pirate’s favorite sword: one somewhat traditional, one somewhat high-tech, and one enhancing some of the stock designs used for props, and turning them into fully-deadly blades.
Who had the best? Decide for yourself.
