Assassin's Creed IV Hidden Blade
Really cool blade. A must get for all assassians creed fans. !@#$%^&*()!@#$%^&*()!@#$%^&*()!@#$%^&*(
Do not buy this thing. The original Ezio blade was made amazingly well. The new ACIV blade is a piece of junk. I received the blade, it ships extended, and pushed it back into place. The first time pressing the button shot the blade right out of the device breaking it immediately. There is no getting it back in. I received a replacement blade and the exact same thing happened. The blade shot right out. Seriously, stay away from this unless you never intend to actually use it. The Ezio blade had two springs and this new one only has one. It looks excellent until you actually try to use it.
Looks amazing and feels great. Mine feels best on my right arm but it might change from person to person. The blade bends easily though and the "simulated leather" described is a malleable hard plastic but those are my only complaints about this product. Highly recommend.
Great collectible. Just wish the blade wasn't made of rubber. Too loud for it to be a hidden blade like from the game
Very good product
Over all its a pretty good prop. People have told me that the blade pops out or it gets stuck but i have yet to have any of those problems... i really like it , i am currently using it for my Connor cosplay outfit ( even though its Edwards ) but it looks awesome appearance wise, so i would recommend it to anyone who is a insane assassins creed fanboy like me
the item looks good but what it is made of kinda sucks it limps when you press the button. sure if you know what you are doing you can prob mod it to work how you like it to be but you better not mess up or you just got a good looking trash bracer.
I bought this recently and I and pretty happy with it, but I noticed a few things that some people might not be willing to overlook. DON'T GO BY THE PICS ON THE BOX OR ON THIS WEBSITE, because there are two noticeable differences on the actual product. First the Velcro straps are not brown on the product, instead they are black,very noticeable. Luckily they can easily be taken off and replaced with brown Velcro or, if you are clever enough, real leather straps. second, if you look at the image on the website you can see that the leather gauntlet has loops (I attached a image so you know exactly what part I am talking about) were you can run the Velcro though that will keep the hidden blade part attached securely to the gauntlet. Those are not on the product and I'm not sure why.
Still a good product if these discrepancies don't bother you, durable and cool. fits on comfortably if you plan on wearing it for a extended period and only restricts wrist movement slightly.
I recently bought one of these, and after reading all of these bad reviews, I was kind of scared. It was way better than I expected!! The details are really amazing. The blade is more bendable than I thought, which causes the blade to hang down. But that doesn't really matter. I do recommend that when you press the skull to extend the blade, make sure you use your hand to stop it, because it shoots out very fast. And also make sure you have the switch at the bottom set to off when you aren't using it, because the button is very sensitive. So far, I have had no problems with this. This is definitely a must-have for all Assassin's Creed fans!
This is a great prop but not a toy
The item is made from plastic and rubber, but looks like leather and steel. There is a safety on the hilt to prevent the blade from accidently being opened. Blade must be locked in place before using the safety otherwise you take a chance of breaking the safety. I buy game paraphernalia and set in on a self. This adds very well to my collection. Stabbing someone with the plastic blade will result in damaging the blade and holder. I have waited a long time for this item, but it must be remembered this is more of a studio prop than it is a toy.
Don't listen to the negative people!
Yes Im a real person! And yes it came out much better than I thought it would be. I thought it would be like the AC Brotherhood blade but instead it was a spring, you could retract it, on and off switch so it doesn't go haywire. It's as sensitive as it should be. It doesn't break! I got it in 2 days ago and have been playing with it since! I just can't stop. It makes me happier everytime I use it. The only TINY problem is that I lost the extra band to attach the blade with the gaunlet. It would be much better if they include a spare. My rating is 9.8/10 for this. MUST HAVE for fans like me.
