Could it be? Did they really find Blackbeard's sword? Oh yeah, that must have been the sword Phineas Bogg lopped the blade off of in their fierce battle on the high seas! The description of this pirate sounds fearsome, but it also cracked me up. For you fan-fic writers out there, this could be a good plot bunny! Bogg meets Blackbeard!
An imposing figure to begin with, according to historians, Blackbeard cultivated a ferocious appearance to seem even more menacing: a long dark beard, numerous knives, swords and pistols strapped to his chest -- even lighted fuses in his hair. (Bwahahaha!)
