Introduction: Assassins Creed Bracer (Complete With [Beta] Hidden Blade and Armor Plates)

Picture of Assassins Creed Bracer (Complete With [Beta] Hidden Blade and Armor Plates)

This is my first slideshow I've ever made, and I hope you enjoy it. I would make an actual instructable on this, but I didn't take the pictures until this project was aprox. 90% complete. I have tried to take the most detailed shots I can to try and give you the clearest picture on how this was made.

You may have a difficult time making the hidden blade. As far as I know there is no absolute right way to make one, its sort of a "to each his own" sort of thing. The most accurate way to go about it is to purchase a telescoping tai chi sword from a martial arts store/website, but these usually come at 25+ dollars. Besides I wanted to go for a more DIY approach, and mine may be one of the best ways to make it out of scrap materials. No Tai Chi sword. No cabinet sliders. Just two pens, a chopstick, sandpaper and tape.

The plates are also made of scrap material. If you have one of those cheap school binders, especially if the rings are broken, I highly suggest using them, the cardboard in them is pretty strong since it's not corrugated.

The gloves were old, and the fabric of the bracer was scrap, hotglued together (I can't sew).

Kool. I want to make a "hidden blade" glove where a pocket knife pops out and I can whittle. Do you mind if I modify your brilliant instructions?

CAT0916 (author)2011-03-05

It seems the hidden blade is a little bit short.

Dude. Please make an instructable. This is epic.

bobbubbles (author)2011-01-07

lol wow. in reality you wouldn't have to for either one. just move your finger. in the game it was considered a "sacrifice" to the blade. some sort of assassins dedication. jeez people.

taegin (author)2010-07-10

no ever sacraficed a finger, that was a joke by leonardo :P

pokerstud001 (author)taegin 2010-08-05

Altair did, Leonardo said it used to require it, but he modified it so Ezio didn't have to

toaignika (author)2009-07-22

You could make Ezio's blades and not have to cut off your ring finger. Leonardo da Vinci made it so that the blade was held farther away from the wrist. This is all from Assassin's Creed 2 of course.

shams (author)toaignika2009-12-22

 leonardo didnt made it.........Altair  Ibn Al - Ahad made it

toaignika (author)shams2009-12-30

Ummm, no. Altair did not make the hidden blade... it was given to him by the Assassin's Creed when he was a master assassin.

shams (author)toaignika2009-12-31

 bro you are out of the line.....we are talking about the double blade that ezio got....which didnt need to remove the ring finger.........

uzum4 (author)shams2010-02-06

sorry but you're both wrong. Neither Altair nor leonardo "made" any hidden blade. Leonardo just fixed some of them and built the BLUEPRINTS that Altair DESIGNED. Altair didnt make any, he just drew blueprints of upgrades for the hidden blade. Which where encripted into the Codex pages. so bottom line, leonardo built what altair drew.

Baddi (author)uzum42010-07-10

Leonardo build and fixed it so ezio didi'nt have to sacrafise his finger for it it appears in the game ps sorry for my bad spelling

blubbersmith (author)toaignika2009-12-17

 also, there is not that much armor on ezios hidden blade

watzhisface (author)blubbersmith2009-12-30

what are you talking about leonardo puts an armour plate on it so he can block

shams (author)watzhisface2010-01-25

 actually the great muslim assassin Altair designed it....and leo jst built it

Kendallkip (author)toaignika2010-01-14

no, leonardo just fixed the blade

saxman31 (author)2009-12-31

 ezios blade uses a mechanism that works like wheel lock to extend and retract the blade. also in assassins creed 2 only ezios second blade is made by Leonardo. his first blade was only fixed by Leonardo. 

blubbersmith (author)2009-12-17

 altair has his hidden blade on his left hand not right

smilerofall (author)2009-11-21

 could you please explain how the pen-blade works? what kind of pen do you need? could you please be detailed?

finfan7 (author)2009-04-25

Pff you still have your last two fingers. This isn't complete.

GnomeMaster (author)finfan72009-07-10

you mean the ring finger on the pinky as well

fenrisilver (author)finfan72009-04-26

Your right, its still a work in progress

GnomeMaster (author)2009-07-10

Okay, unlike this altairs blade is a dagger, not a spike like everyone does. i know because of the attached photo and if you are planing on having an altair costume work on the bracer more

theifmaster (author)2009-05-09

can you explain the pens and chopstick more clearly i have the rest

bounty1012 (author)theifmaster2009-06-07

Its the hidden blade, the pen seems to shoot out the chopstick from a spring inside.
