  1. Not the best picture of the hilt but if'n you look close you can see this be a sea dragon hilt with the cross guard being the beasts out streached neck. The pommel is it's claw that holds a lovely sea-blue Labrodorite spear. It was made org as a Schlager-style but can be rapier or smaller cutlass as well. The grip is custom fit to my grip. FAST and nasty! And here also be too old ones of mine... and... I'll get some pictures taken of my custom work from Lunndgaard Armoury and pist those as well.
  2. Hello, I saw in an old post where you had the lyrics to Billy Bones. Could you please help me with info of the guitar cords to Billy Bones? Thank you.

  3. Blackbeards Sword Found??

    It could happen I guess!
  4. Death of a fellow Pirate...

    We have lost a good Pirate.. It is with great sadness that I tell you that Bad Jack, Jim Potkey the lead singer for “Pirates of the Black Swan” passed away yesterday morning from what they believe was a blood clot. Kate says that the stress of losing the house and all their pets to fire was most likely too much. She is looking for help from any local black Powder folks since his wish was to have his ashes shot from a cannon. If anyone has a contact, please email me off list and I will get you in touch with the family. Such grand music that will now not be heard. Thanks mates,

  6. POTC Sneek Peek at DISNEYLAND

    If you’re looking forward to the new adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” then you won’t want to miss the exciting new pirate experience coming to Disneyland park. Beginning March 25, you can join Jack and a crew of rowdy pirates for a Disneyland park-exclusive, extended 3D film sequence – a sneak peek of the new movie (opening May 20). It’ll be “all hands on deck” as park guests take on the role of pirates and enter Festival Arena to “set sail” for high adventure with Captain Jack and many of the new Pirate stars in the unique, immersive 3D film experience, featuring a scene from the new movie. Look for “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides – Sneak Peek” on weekend nights from March 25 to May 30, and seven nights a week from April 15 through May 1. Check the Disneyland park Show Times Guide for nightly sailing times, and get ready for a rollicking good time filled with action, suspense and laughter. It’s fun for the whole family – and it’s only at Disneyland park! Are any of you scallywags out there excited to join Jack’s crew? I'm just say'n....
  7. POTC 5...

    Yes, we are all scratching our heads over this one...
  8. POTC 5...

    I wonder what the story is based on...anyone know at this point? Iron Bess? Sorry lass.... I canna talk about it right now.
  9. POTC 4 is at this time....

    ...on hold. Hopefully this will be a short wait but there are circumstances that must be fathomed before the project moves forward. Keep a weather eye out mates. May the squall pass on it’s way in jig time! (I think it will….)
  10. Ahoy mates, More information will be coming shortly, however I wanted to post now and let you know that one of our own Pirate brothers has suffered a tremendous loss. Many of you are good friends of Captain Bad Jack, who is the lead singer of the very popular Pirate Band *Pirates of the Black Swan* Last Saturday his home was destroyed by fire and while most importantly his wife made it to safety, it took the lives of his 3 dogs and 7 cats. They have lost nearly everything it seems but are even more emotionally traumatized by the death of their pets. I know they will appreciate your thoughts and prayers and as soon we have further information I will pass it along to you. They know they will have the emotional support of their Pirate family and they are very grateful.
  11. Make me a wrist support?

    Hello you creative mates o'mine, I am trying to get back a bit of my life and am starting in small ways. I am playing my Bodhran again but find a need for a bit of wrist support since the surgery. I am looking for a wrist brace two inches and maybe a little more wide that is not so stiff as to not be flexable. When I get to drumming I fly! It cannot be a lacing style but with SECURE snaps or ??? I'd like it carved with a more lifelike Seahorse and or some really nice Celtic knot work... soft browns and greens or... ?? Anyway, I thought I'd give you Pirates the first shot as it were.. Any ideas anyone?

  13. Pyrates on Etsy

    Ahoy all... I am not a Merchant BUT.... I spend me coin at the Etsy site far more now then ever I did at eBay. I find the people easier to contact, talk to, the choices FAR nicer (but then I adore home made...) and it's easier to get something fixed if needs be. Point in fact, looky here... I could not find a mermaid Skeleton neck-piece to suit these old eyes so I listed on the ALCHEMY part of Etsy and had several folks speak up to do custom work and make me what I wanted. And it's been a GREAT experience! So there are more ways to contact buyers. Make your site stand out, send out emails and make it work for you! By the way... attached below is the *almost* completed Mermaid, my homage to POTC 4. She's white Sterling Silver with a Black Pearl treasure in her mit. She is a Pin/Pendant so she's even more fun then I expected. yes indeedy, I do LOVE Etsy! :) Missed you all by the way.... Mermaid Bones 9.bmpMermaid Bones 10.bmp

    And that is just how she rides down the street to. She love's setting sail. Wish I had a dime for every picture taken of her and for every minor fender bender she has caused from folks trying to TAKE said pictures.
