The Blackbeard is a traditional tricorn with three upturned sides, and featuring a pinched front peak. When anyone sees this hat they will say one thing, "Pirate!" Edward Teach was Blackbeard, one of the most feared pirates of all time. Blackbeard earned his nickname because of his long full black beard into which he would weave cannon fuse and ignite when going into battle, providing a very sinister, hellish look. He was a large man with unruly black hair, carried many knives, a bracer of pistols, sword and hand axe. He was known to be ruthless and was feared by his crew and foes alike. In 1718 he was pardoned by the Governor of North Carolina but continued his pirating until killed in battle with the Royal Navy. Although his career only lasted a few short years his reputation remains as one of the most notorious pirates of all time.
