Review: Pirate Goblet

Rating: ★★★★½
Captain Goldtooth Pirate Pottery

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – nothing spoils a glorious pirate personna faster than drinking out of a dixie cup. You may be the meanest scalliwagg around, complete with glorious brocade coat and a bicorn hat that eclipses the sun, but if you’re sipping your rum from a disposable plastic container, you still look a ninny.

Fortunately there are options – pewter and stoneware solutions are on the rise, from tankards to flasks to onion bottles. Pirates can select from the extremely fancy to the simple and rustic. Personally, it’s the rustic I often like best, as it seems most suited to the consumption of rum. And it’s in this way that Goldtooth Pottery truly shines. But if you’re not a rum fan, don’t let that stop you. Goldtooth drinking vessels are just as suited for the drinking of Kill Devil, Bomboo, Flip, Grog, or just plain ol’ distilled molasses.

Goldtooth pottery is available in several styles, but the variety is infinite. As each is handcrafted, no two are alike. What they do share in common, though, is a sturdy, hand-made appearance and a gloriously roughed-out jolly roger logo on the face. These are the piratey cups and mugs that the pirates of Madagascar would have made and drank from, if only they were clever enough to have done so. For myself I chose the goblet model, being somewhat chalice-like and regal. Well, about as regal as a bamboo throne, but that’s the point. Rough, real, and piratey – through and through.

Aside from goblets, Goldtooth also offers jars, steins, and noggins (grog mugs.) Each is available in a wide range of colors, and sizes range from tiny to gargantuan. I recommend ordering from Pyrate Leatherworx, as they are happy to send you pictures of what they have in stock so that you can choose the item that’s perfect for you!
