Originally, Chris Crane, aka "Hermit", had the blade at an early age, but it was at that time a Rusty Cutlass. Hermit was trained to use the sword by his parents because the EITC and Royal Navy were searching for him. After the death of Hermit's parents, he left England with his siblings, and they settled in the Caribbean. At some point, when Hermit worked in INFERNO, under Ned Yellowbeard, he discovered a Cursed Blade without it's handle on a Thrall Captain's belt. When he killed the Thrall Captain and claimed the blade as his own, he took it to his hideout, and replaced the blade of his current sword with the Cursed Sword, and it became a Deepwater Broadsword. Later, during a looting party on Isla Tormenta with Bill Plunderbones, Hermit discovered a Tyrant Blade. Later that day he fused it with the Hermit Blade, giving it a new appearance and abilities. It wasn't long after that where Hermit discovered a Barracuda Blade and fused that with the blade as well.
Christopher Crane is in possession of the blade. Since it's a childhood item, people who even ask for the blade are usually shot as a simple "no". He uses it very well, and it "chose" him, he claims. It has been used to murder many individuals, including Pearson Wright/Pearson Hristov, Carlos Clemente, and many more.
StatsThe sword currently has an attack of 271 (due to the attack of each sword, the rusty cutlass, Deepwater, Tyrant, and Barracuda, added up). When Hermit finds the Lost Sword of El Patron or the World Eater Blade and integrates one of them into the sword, its attack will rise greatly.
