How to Obtain
- This item is obtained by trading a Buccaneer's Knife to the ??? that appears at the south end of the room where Brigandish Blade is spawned (see screencap).
- If the pillar is not ready to morph the knife, you will just receive the "Nothing happens." message.
- If you fail you will need to steal a new knife to try again; a failed knife will never transform (verified 25/05/2020).
Bartholomew Roberts, one of the most well-known pirates in history, was also the most successful one by number of ships captured. This would account for the Steal +2 attribute, and being a pirate on the high seas would account for the water damage and resistance. He is also known as "Black Bart".
