by Jase13 Awesome, but....
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.

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.

by xXAsxsaxssxinX Very very Disappointing.... :(
I was looking so forward to getting the Assassins Creed IV Black Flag hidden blade..... I got it for Christmas and was very happy with it. I loved how fast it came out and all that. After about 2 months of having it I pressed the button and it just flew out faster than light, hit my wall and made a very deep dent. I was so mad that it broke so easily... I'm never buying a product for that company again.

Rated 5 out of 10 by Kamranos Just OK
I bought this hidden blade because I am absolutely in love with the Ezio hidden blade. Sadly, the AC4 hidden blade is just not up to par with Ezio's. The detailing is amazing and the fit is great, but it is an unreliable junky toy. I've had the Ezio one for years and it still works as well as the day I bought it. My AC4 hidden blade is already broken after not even 1 week of use only to show off to friends. The one piece blade design is really flawed in the functionality department. If you're looking for a prop to look great on a shelf, get this thing. If you are hoping to use it for a functional cosplay, build one yourself because it is more likely to last longer.
Rated 2 out of 10 by Akatsukininja Poor Quality
I am mostly disgusted by how poorly made this was. The hidden bade itself is flimsy and bends under it's own weight when extended. The straps to secure the hidden blade are cheap Velcro which detracts from the authenticity. The skull on the button used to extend the blade fell off after only a few uses, it looked to be held on by one or two drops of glue. The actual gauntlet looked fine, but came with only a single strap to secure it which was simple plastic made to look like leather. The gauntlet requires at least 3 anchoring points to be secure. The photos indicate to use the Velcro straps from the hidden blade and it overall just looks fake at that point.
Rated 8 out of 10 by AvatarJake Great Product!
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!

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.

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.
Rated 10 out of 10 by EarthWalker2013 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.
