    Our "Pirate's Toothpick" once sailed aboard Mel Fisher's Atocha!

    The original artifact from which this toothpick was cast is made of 22 KT gold! Spanish aristocracy sailing aboard the treasure galleons used this little tool to clean their finger nails and pick their teeth… hopefully not in that order! They were custom-made for each individual, and they have unique designs requested by the user.

    The lion toothpick was recovered from the Atocha off Key West, Florida, and the cupid toothpick was recovered by Robert’s treasure diving buddy and mentor, Captain Carl Fismer from the 1715 Treasure Fleet off Vero Beach, Florida. Both originals have been displayed in Mel Fisher’s museums.

    Today we affectionately call these amazing artifacts “Pirates Tooth Picks” and they can serve the same purpose they originally did… or they can be worn by a lady or gentleman adventurer as a single pendant, or added to a chain to compliment another pendant. The late Duke Long, one of Robert’s old treasure diving friends and mentors, and a jewelry artist himself, added a “Pirates Tooth Pick” to one of Robert’s first Spanish treasure coins. And, Robert hasn’t worn it since he proposed to April and she commandeered it!

    Shipwreck Silver

    Theses Pirate's Toothpicks are cast with our exclusive blend of shipwreck silver from four shipwrecks: Atocha - 1622, the 1715 Fleet, Le Chameu - 1725 and Santa Leocadia - 1800. To read about how we blend our authentic shipwreck silver, where the treasure came from, and the history of these shipwrecks, check out Robert's Blog "Shipwreck Silver - the Story Behind the Story."
