PIRATE - Boatswain Kadby.

Boatswain Kadby is a semi interactive figure. With movable arms, he is dressed in long-legged shorts and cropped shirt. Holding a miniature replicate boarding axe (used in the pursuit of 'boarding' foreign ships), with spike on on end, traditional axe blade forward of the handle, boatswain Kadby is ready to breach and plunder.

 The boatswain, or bosun, was in charge of keeping the ship in shape for travel and battle, looking after the wood, canvas, and ropes that were vital to swift and safe sailing. The bosun often led shore parties to restock supplies or find material for repairs when needed. He oversaw activities such as dropping and weighing the anchor, setting the sails, and making sure the deck was swabbed. An experienced boatswain was a very valuable man who often got a share-and-a-half of loot.


Each figure is unique, and is made with keeping to an heirloom quality, therefore each will present with a mix of natural timber to which will display variations in colour, knots and grain patterns, across each individual piece. Each piece will be completely unique. No two pieces will be the same.
