i dont own any of the Assassin's Creed game but i played a demo for the DS game on my ipod touch and it was pretty cool, but i am really in to swords and the hidden blade is one kind of sword i want to have
I respect you, but the hidden blade isn't a sword, it's a xiphoid.
yeah but its a type of sword pretty much. its a sharp blade and thats enough for me to like it
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xiphoid what your thinking of is called a katar, though not the traditional version which is stationary, it is a form of katar.
If all three parts locked into position, and it came off your arm to use, I'd *assume* it'd be long enough to be called a short sword. Quick, fun, cool!
the hidden blade is more like a type of dagger not sword a sword has a longer blade at least a foot and a half and thats a short sword

Am I the only one noticing that his finished product has a lot more done to it than simple drawer slide riveted to a knife holster? There are locking mechanism on there, knobs to attach a spring to, and that doesn't even look like any drawer slide I've ever seen to begin with. The Instructable is simple enough to follow, but he didn't use those instructions or materials to make what he's wearing...
that slider came out of a server drawer, its real heavy duty. this is awesome cause i got a bunch of those things. i had thought of this but never went through it.
Cool. Do you know if slides like this are available online anywhere, or what I'd actually have to search for? "Server Drawer Slider" doesn't seem to turn up anything looking like this.
they're not server drawer slides, they were accuride sliders.... hope this info helps.....
Thank you!
btw, according to my observation, you SHOULD use ACCURIDE SLIDERS because they're compact, meaning it's as if there's no ball bearings, easy to conceal, soft lubricated, strong metal and heavy duty......thats why 5 of 7 hidden blades of mine are from accuride sliders....
im not too sure i only have them cause i got them with a pile of scrap(along with the rest of the server cabnet)

 maybe you could add a spring pin to lock it in place so it doesn't slide back in till you want it to.
look up xiphoid.
its a part of the body not a weapon your talking about something totally off subject dude
indeed it is. but they use the xiphoid term to designate this kinds of daggers.
... ur off topic.. a xiphoid is a retractable dagger weapon, so before hating, I recommend you to thoroughly research the topic..( lol mean voice) im not trying to be mean... and btw.. next time u google. try googling "xiphoid weapon"
and nice idea with the drawer slide.. it could use some work.... im current experimenting with this.. so hold you horses people... its coming.. =)

I dont want to be rude, but this isnt a wrist blade or xiphoid, its a draw slide you have strapped to your wrist?

I like what youv done so far but its not finished, and on that note I recommend not to post a 'how-to topic' on something that hasnt been finished/

Im not trying to be rude, but all this page does is mis-lead people.

Cant wait to see finished product.
yes i agree... but it wouldn't be hard to add a spring, i made this project and added a spring and it worked so well that i had to take it apart to get the blade out of the tree...
yo man i just gota ask where u got the slide. i have been making xiphoids for a long time now ( FOR FILM MAKING ONLY!!!!!!!!!!) and i have never come across a slide like that. i even might make a tutorial about saftey on this stuff. i have read like a hundred things about kids killing themselves with shanks because they are stupid and dont care about them selve. ANNYWAY i would like to know ASAP about the slide. Thanks Dude and Btw check out my channel. ill have some new tuts up soon

the hidden blade is supposed to be on your left hand...
how would you attach the blade to it? cause the door slider piece doesnt look very sharp

go to indymogul.com, and search for "gun rig", I think that you will find it is quite easy to expand on this wonderful concept

I already did that, but it's kinda big tho. I'm trying to make it smaller. But college don't lemme much time :D
same (except 4 the college part) I'm currently working in a rig/xiphoid that borrows from cowscankill's Mk 4 design, I would recommend trying something like that Oh, and there's a website dedicated to making xiphoids, can't remember the address, but if u ask cows, he'll probably know
If my mind doesn't tricks me, its called exoticautomation
the site name is exotic automatic, but the url is diffent. anyhow, here's a link http://sinza.forumotion.com/xiphoid-design-xiphoidwrist-forearm-blade-weapons-c1/ hope it helps you w/ the xiphoid, it sure helped me

i did my difference
i got scrap metal that fitted my shape and then i tokk ball bearings from something elese that i found and transfred them, messy, and just added another sheet of metal and placed my blade on it. i was stupid though and when my friend moived i gave it to him

Or you can build an actual automatic knife.
Wolf Seril5 years ago
If this was actually automated, this would be awesome. But its a drawer slider strapped to your arm.

For those of you who were as disappointed as me; I might be making an actual one sometime soon. IF I do, I will post an instructable (assuming I don't cut my own wrist and bleed out).
Wolf Seril:  Dude, go easy!  Didn't you read this?  It's his first instructable!  Offer some constructive criticism instead of negativity.  Negativity drives people away, but well thought out, pointed, and honest criticism makes better instructables members with better instructables down the road.

xbox1kid:  He does have a point, in that if you could make it look a little more bladelike that would be cool.  I totally love your idea and think this is a very good starting point.  Honestly, I don't even care that it's just a drawer slide--it would just be fun to flick you wrist and have this slide out!

One bit of advice I can offer you is to work on your grammar a little bit.  Use full sentences and proper punctuation, and to hit the spellcheck button before you post.  Also, I'd like to see a quick video of the blade extending.

All in all, a nice first effort.  I'm looking forward to more!
I said the same thing you did, just quicker. Any negativity was read, not written.
 I agree with depotdevoid, you did kinda rip into him, for what looks like the soul purpose of saying 'mine is going to be better'.

Play nice, and try and at least make it sound like you are offering some helpful advice.

Be Nice.
xbox1kid (author)  Wolf Seril5 years ago
hey if you think its horrible why not build one thats better or give me a couple of pointers
I agree with you. My rating reflects this. [Be nice policy]
if u do cut ureself u better finish the ible b4 u bleed to death >:0

nice,but does this have any locking system?
yours is the best one ive saw in instructables,but im just curious about that problem...

okay maybe just a knive holster is a litle getto.
ill try making this but adding a gauntlet withought fingers and sewing the knive holster to the glove?
hows that sound?

okoshima5 years ago
first this may come across wrong but im too tired to word things out so please dont take this as a dig at you i think you have done a good job.

although this is more like the taxi driver gun mount, and their are a lot better ways to do this the best one ive seen that functions correctly is an oversized auto knife (out the front version) there are the plans for them out there and the automatically extend and retract at the touch of a switch / lever

good ible though
can you give me a link to find these cus i can't seem to find any.

Thanks in advance.
Nice ible! you should think about adding somtin that loks it out though

A good project to get the ball rolling in peoples minds.  Good on you for starting the development.

Couple of improvements would be some sort of spring mechanism to extend it, and a pulley/gear system to retract it.  Probably all mounted within a glove.  You should check out a couple of the leatherworking instructables for ideas visa vi that.
and of course, the infamous blade after which it is named is an essential component.

But Great effort for a 1st instructable and design idea
xbox1kid (author)  jimbo1125 years ago
thanks for the advice. i'll think about a spring mechanism

awesome profile pic
xbox1kid (author) 5 years ago
thanks depotdevoid

as i said it is a slider attached to your wrist
i will try to improve it
No prob, dude.  I mostly wanted to make sure you knew that the other guy's response wasn't indicative of the attitude of the instructables community at large.  Again, welcome aboard, and thanks for posting your instructable!
