  8. I think he bit the width of the blade for photogenic reasons. He’d have to lower his head so you could tell its a blade…and he knows a true pirate would never lower their head for photographs!

    It is clear that at one point you worked for various publications, while now you work for yourself. What inspired you to start all this?
