He's got me eye! He won't give it back."
"Well how'd you get it last time?!
Ragetti and Pintel[src]

This piece of wood was carved to look like a wooden eye. It was known to be the piece of eight that was given by Boris Palachnik to Hector Barbossa. The carving is known to be used most by Ragetti as a replacement for an eye he lost in battle. The eye was occasionally popped out by Jack the Monkey or anything that knocks Ragetti in the back of his head.


This eye is made out of wood in a spherical shape. It is also the same size as a golf ball.


Pirates of the Caribbean

The Curse of the Black Pearl


A fork in Ragetti's wooden eye.

Ragetti was seen putting on his eye when attacking Port Royal. During the battle with the HMS Interceptor, the crew kept shooting random objects at the Black Pearl, a fork struck the wooden eye, after which Pintel pulled it out and examined it. The eye was on Ragetti also during the battle of Isla de Muerta, where it popped out in the middle of the fight. Ragetti instantly panicked and started chasing after it all the way until the curse was lifted, after which he was arrested by the British Royal Navy.

Dead Man's Chest

The wooden eye was with Ragetti when he and Pintel escaped from the prison at Port Royal. It was with him throughout his time under Jack Sparrow's command aboard the Black Pearl, from the search for the Dead Man's Chest.

At World's End

Ragetti had the eye on throughout the voyage to save Jack Sparrow. Afterwards, Jack the Monkey took the eye and Ragetti had to chase him all over the Pearl. When he finally got it back, Hector Barbossa took the eye and put it into his mouth and then put it back into Ragetti's empty eye socket so that it would stay. Ultimately, Barbossa took the eye back, along with all the other pieces of eight, in which Ragetti used an eye patch as a replacement. Ragetti's former wooden eye finally burned to a crisp during the incantation to release Calypso from her human form.

Book Appearances

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Price of Freedom

This piece of wood was the Piece of Eight of Boris "Borya" Palachnik, the Pirate Lord of the Caspian Sea. When Davy Jones identified Borya as the leader of the rogue pirates who violated the Pirate's Code, Borya's crew were imprisoned by the Brethren Court and sentenced to hang. Feeling guilt for destroying the Cobra, a pirate ship of his friend Hector Barbossa, Borya gave the piece of eight to Barbossa, thus making him the next Pirate Lord of the Caspian Sea.

Behind the scenes

  • The visual guides for the film confirm that Ragetti lost his eye in battle.
  • Ragetti wished he had a glass eye, as his wooden one was splintering, as seen in The Curse of the Black Pearl.
  • To portray the eye in the Pirates of the Caribbean films, Ragetti's portrayer, Mackenzie Crook, had to wear an eye contact that was made to look wooden.
