   Captain Jack Sparrow
Johnny Depp revolutionized pirates in film with his virtuoso performance as Captain Jack Sparrow in the 2003 film "Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl". The movie (and his adept (or should we say, a-Depp) interpretation of the role created a Pirate-fervor across the world. There was merchandising aplenty for Sparrow-inspired goods, but no one tried to recreate the most important pieces of Sparrow's equipment; With the sequel, "Dead Man's Chest", coming out in Summer of 2006, Master Replicas has corrected that mistake. The Jack Sparrow sword and Jack Sparrow Flintlock Pistol have both been masterfully re-created and presented for the pleasure of collectors around the world.

The fictional Captain Sparrow was, originally, the captain of the equally fictional Black Pearl, one of the most feared pirate ships in the Caribbean. He was a fierce fighter, a strong captain and perhaps a little too kind of heart for a pirate. He had a certain eccentric class that makes him endearing, despite his constant state of drunkenness and his wobbly gait.

Captain Jack Sparrow's crew mutinied against him and marooned him on a deserted island. His First Mate, Barbossa, took command of the ship and promptly triggered a curse on himself and his crew by stealing a chest of cursed Aztec gold coins. Sparrow in the meantime either saved himself by riding sea turtles off the island or was rescued by rumrunners who used the island as a cache for their goods, depending on who you ask. From then on, he staggered and listed when he walked, slurred his speech and spasmed occasionally. Most of those traits allegedly came from heat stroke suffered on the island he was marooned at. The slurred speech, however, comes from his seemingly perpetual state of drunkeness.

Johnny Depp claims that one of his primary inspirations for the role was Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards. Fairly odd, but it makes sense in some weird sort of way.

Master Replicas tells us that the several different versions of the Captain Jack Sparrow sword were made for the movie. For closes up shots, they made a real sword -- heavy, steel, you know the type. For action sequences, they made fake aluminum versions that could be swung more easily. Strongblade wisdom holds that, if you can't swing your sword, then you don't deserve it. But in this case, we'll let it slide. It is Johnny Depp, after all.
When besieging the Muslim city of Antioch in the 12th century, European knights catapulted the heads of slain muslims into the city to demoralize the soldiers inside. While we don't condone lobbing heads of your enemies into cities, Strongblade does sell knight swords, knight weapons and knight armor, as well as crusader swords, crusader costumes and crusader armor.
