As a young man, he worked in East India Trading Company transporting slaves. He however refused to hand over the slaves to the traders out of pity. His boss got angry; the ship he captained was mysteriously burned and Jack Sparrow was accused as the arsonist. Jobless and with a ruined reputation, he became a pirate.

Captain Jack Sparrow swords
Captain Jack Sparrow is famous for his pirate sword(please link to What is a pirate sword). In the film he used the English military hanger. It is a longer version of the cutlass sword (please insert to What is a cutlass sword). The hanger is made of broad blade which was either straight or slightly curved, with a cupped or basket hilt.
The hanger is a slashing and cutting sword. It was easy to use because it required very basic training. It was also ideal for naval use because it was serviceable in cutting ropes, canvas, wood, and sails.
The legends of Captain Jack Sparrow sword
Captain Jack Sparrow bought his hanger sword in Tortuga. He would have picked up a cutlass, but he thought that a few added inches of the hanger sword was going to give him better advantage.
Jack used his hanger sword in several occasions: his duel against Will Turner in Pirates of the Caribbean: the Curse of the Black Pearl; against Hector Barbossa in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl; and against Davy Jones in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Dead Man’s Chest.
The last appearance of his sword was in Pirates of the Caribbean: At the World’s End. It was snapped into two by Jones’ powerful claws. Luckily, Captain Jack Sparrow used the remaining shards of his hanger sword to stab the heart of Davy Jones, killing him.
