"Hand to hand combat weapons were a pirates best option after the flintlock pistols ran out and they needed to keep fighting to gain control over a ship. Common hand to hand combat weapons included swords such as the cutlass along with boarding axes and pikes and even small shields.

These weapons were greatly effective for pirates, with the combination of the shield and cutlass being referred to as a 'swashbuckler'…."
