They have all the peices to make an authetic Altair costume including a working hidden switchblade, sword, knife, and throwing knives. It's really expensive though. If the link won't work go to mwart.com and find the games/movies replicas section on the list to the right.

I ordered the hidden blade & short blade from Redford Films a while ago and they havn't arrived because the *devastating swear words* postal service somehow decided to cancel international money orders and won't give me my money back. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

I would love to have a replica of Altiar's hidden blade, which out a sharp end of course. But a working one would be awesome.

If it doesn't work it isn't a good replica i think.

/facepalm.

I never said it would not work, I said that the "blade" which would come out of the armguard would nto be shape. You can't have that.

blade replica weapons are never sharp.

On some websites you can get your weapons sharpened/unsharpened.

The cheapest price I've found for the hidden blade + short blade is at Kult of Athena (http://www.kultofathena.com/daggers-fantasy.htm); bottom of the page, left-hand column. I've got the Wraith Dagger, 2nd row, middle column.

generally they are classed under functional weapons (used in shows and such) as a rule tho game and movie replicas are designed as a decoration so they will be blunt.

I suppose if you feel inclined you could try and sharpen weapons yourself.

you could try to sharpen them but due to the way they are blunted you would probably end up ruining the blade.

Marek86

You most definitley would due to the fact movie and game replicas are often made from very low grade steel. You would most-likely crack the blade, and if you didn't, you would chip the plating on it revealing black charred metal underneath.

No, people like to display weapons (like paintings and statues for example, and yes it's considered an artform), and a lot of people also cosplay.

EDIT: And yes, like all art it is WAY overpriced.

Yes... filming youtube videos... that's what I'd use them for... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

And while most replicas are made of stainless steel (which is a softer metal) for a longer shelf-life, the Assassin's Creed fighting knife is made of carbon steel; harder, lighter and can hold an edge better. Like all battle-ready blades it does require maintinence for optimal performance. And, to avoid damaging the blade, fighters would try to either dodge an enemy attack or parry it with the flat part of the blade.

I really want a hidden blade... But I'd rather not spend 100+ bucks on one when I can just make one.

I agree, there is no point. Why would you want it sharp and ruin it?

I don't know how exactly... I haven't made one myself but I plan to follow one off of a tut from YouTube. Gotta love YouTube.

They don't look as good as the official replicas but, they can be however you want. Sharp, blunt whatever. And you can make one for under $20. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Yeah but the replica comes with all the engravings and true to game appearance. All of the items featured are obviously not for use of play or prop in any way, you'd break them if you mistreated them so. They're for collectors and cosplayers.

Just got word from Redford Films that my order has finally been shipped... after I ordered it over a month ago... after they cancelled that order 2 weeks ago... annoying jerks! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

Like I promised, I'll take some pics and post a review in the weapons thread. Which is a few pages back... should I post the review here or keep my promise of posting it there?<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">Assuming they actually arrive...</pre>

Poeple like me love cosplaying and every game or movie has their signature iteams. Assassins Creed has the hidden blade. ^_^

Weapons came in today, they're bigger than I thought. Still cool though, once I get my hands on a decent camera I'll post a proper review.
