THE PIRATE KING

Blackbeard didn’t just sail the high seas, he commanded them. As big and burly in person as in reputation, Edward “Blackbeard” Teach was as brilliant as he was fierce. The mere mention of his name struck fear in the hearts of honest men and pirates alike. In the epic Starz series Black Sails, Blackbeard (played by Ray Stevenson) valued strength above all else, and whether it was with cannons, fists, pistols or knives, Blackbeard loved the battle. Fans of Black Sails now have an opportunity to claim a piece of Blackbeard’s legend – VIP Fan Auctions is offering the dagger he used on-screen in the series. Silver with a gray handle, the prop 11-inch blade Blackbeard kept tucked in his belt (pictured above) is designed to look authentic and will soon be in the treasure chest of the fan who casts the winning bid.

A PIRATE’S LIFE

Black Sails remains the most addictive and intense high-seas tale ever to plunder television. The Starz series is also responsible for bringing a new generation of readers to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel Treasure Island simply for a glimpse into the future of Black Sails stalwarts like Long John Silver and Billy Bones – two key figures in the pirate rebellion. VIP Fan Auctions is offering fans of Black Sails a chance to claim a piece of the groundbreaking series by offering daggers wielded on-screen by several pirate legends – including the dagger of Captain Flint (Toby Stephens), a blade used on-screen by Charles Vane (Zach McGowan), a weapon of choice that belonged to the cut-throat Anne Bonny (Clara Paget), Blackbeard’s (Ray Stevenson) deadly steel and a gold-handled knife used by Jack Rackham (Toby Schmitz).

SILVER’S WARE

The legend of Long John Silver may have sprung from the imagination of Billy Bones to haunt those who opposed to those who “flew the black,” but the man who inspired the myth quickly lived up to the lore. John Silver (played by Luke Arnold) did what no one else could – he “unmade” Captain Flint to bring peace to Nassau, and while he relied much more on guile and cunning than weapons to lead his crew, VIP Fan Auctions is offering the dagger Silver wielded on-screen during the final season of Black Sails. The prop dagger measures more than 15-inches long, features a brown and gold handle (seen tucked into Silver’s belt, above) and has been designed by the Black Sails props department to look authentic. Don’t miss this chance to claim a piece of TV history used by a legendary pirate. Click here for photos and more information about the prop dagger – and get in on the bidding today!

 

HONOR AMONG THIEVES

Captain Flint and John Silver are legends of the high seas – two pirates with vastly different backgrounds and personalities who grew to become the closest of friends. Silver (Luke Arnold), who became more like Flint than he might care to admit, and Flint (Toby Stephens), a force of nature who became Silver’s savior and mentor, were never more powerful than when joined together in a common cause. VIP Fan Auctions is offering two of the weapons that helped both men out of grave danger, including John Silver’s 15-inch screen-used dagger and Captain Flint’s gold-handled dagger (pictured above tucked in Flint’s belt) used on-screen in the final season of Black Sails. Click here to see all of the available Black Sails props, weapons and wardrobe items now available – and claim your piece of the epic pirate adventure today!

 

ADVENTURES OF SILVER AND FLINT

John Silver and Captain Flint are like a pirate version of mismatched partners on a road trip. The silver-tongued Silver (Luke Arnold), who knows the power of a story, and the battering-ram Flint (Toby Stephens), whose relentlessness in the pursuit of whatever it is he sets his sights – together, there seems to be no odds they can’t overcome. Of course, their personalities are often backed up by brutality, and VIP Fan Auctions is offering the tools of their trade. Currently available is John Silver’s 15-inch screen-used dagger from the fourth season of Black Sails. In addition, Captain Flint’s gold-handled dagger with what appears to be the head of a griffin sculpted into the handle used on-screen in the final season of Black Sails is also on the auction block.
