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?

It seems the hidden blade is a little bit short.

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.

no ever sacraficed a finger, that was a joke by leonardo :P
Altair did, Leonardo said it used to require it, but he modified it so Ezio didn't have to

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.

 leonardo didnt made it.........Altair  Ibn Al - Ahad made it
toaignika shams5 years ago
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 toaignika5 years ago
 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 shams5 years ago
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.

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
 also, there is not that much armor on ezios hidden blade
what are you talking about leonardo puts an armour plate on it so he can block
 actually the great muslim assassin Altair designed it....and leo jst built it
no, leonardo just fixed the blade

 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. 
 altair has his hidden blade on his left hand not right

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
theifmaster6 years ago
can you explain the pens and chopstick more clearly i have the rest
Its the hidden blade, the pen seems to shoot out the chopstick from a spring inside.
