View Full Version : weapons

does anyone have any idea where to get replicas of the blades altair is carrying?

05-11-2008, 10:22 AM
Take pictures of the weapons you want replicated, then find a blacksmith and ask him to make them... >_>

I doubt that you would find them already made in any sword shop... unless the owner is a Creed fanatic...

05-11-2008, 10:33 AM
I can get in touch with a couple of smithies round the Manchester area, but it might be a bit of a bugger getting them to you. And since they'd be custom made you can be damn sure they aren't going to come cheap

05-11-2008, 10:44 AM
the hidden blade sure won't be cheap. my forearm ain't big.
i'll need em sharp too. no sense getting dull blades. imagine the people at customs scanning this stuff.. red light on! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

05-11-2008, 11:43 AM
Well, I could have you a blunted one made and send a whetstone so you could sharpen it up yourself. As far as I know that's legal. and it would be cheaper if you just wanted a basic replica and not toledo steel

hey, i am an assassin, i need the best not to blow the job http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

05-11-2008, 11:56 AM
Hrrm. That'd really cost you. If you're actually serious about getting it I could find out for you. But it'll take a little while. And it'll be coming from the UK so it'd take a while to get to you and stuff

05-11-2008, 12:01 PM
i am not planning on wearing them outside (well, not seriously anyway).
hidden blade is the key for me really -- that could be worn.
could you give me a price estimate?

05-11-2008, 12:04 PM
A toledo sword usually goes for around 300/$550. The hidden blade should be about half that, maybe a little more. But that's pure speculation on my part so I'd really have to ask around first. Be not concerned however, as soon as I know, you will too

05-11-2008, 12:17 PM
i'll wait. i have all the time in the world. thx, bob

05-11-2008, 12:26 PM
Wait, so you've come on to a little Assassins Creed community to find out where you can get a Hidden Blade and a sword?

You're mental!

05-11-2008, 12:32 PM
blair, i never said i was sane. what gave you the idea, mate?
i am russian, remember?

05-11-2008, 01:39 PM
And who said Lady A came here just for that?

05-11-2008, 04:12 PM
This guy's work is rather sexay and fully functional: Sinza (http://sinza.forumotion.com/weapon-iii-f2/assassin-railblade-t303.htm)

05-11-2008, 04:30 PM
You know, now that I know you're Russian, you make a lot more sense

05-11-2008, 08:08 PM
i am glad i do.
@nevar: thanks, i have come across this site. he gives a nice description of how to make altair's blade.

05-11-2008, 10:02 PM

I remember when I was 17 and I went through a Highlander phase and my mother bought me some cheap little mini-sword (which was in no way Highlander related), but I had a lot of fun with it.... poor cats...

lmao, just kidding.

05-12-2008, 05:06 AM
i hope the cats forgave you.
but then, i've never heard of a feline's softer side.

05-12-2008, 11:57 PM
Cats are the living embodiment of evil. That's why I like them so much

05-13-2008, 04:35 AM
soft, purry, familiars of the evil one.

05-13-2008, 04:49 AM
I think it's more likely the evil one is their familiar

05-13-2008, 05:03 AM
it's the question of chicken and egg.
it's wierd that the developers did not build any smithies in damascus -- damascene steel was pretty famous back then all over Europe and Middle East and highly praised.

05-13-2008, 05:06 AM
That's a very good point. But since we only got inside the buildings of import to the plot we don't really know that they didn't. Plenty of those buildings I was running around on had chimneys large enough to be usable for a smithy

05-13-2008, 05:10 AM
i don't think a closed in building is a good idea for a smithy: all that hot fire, you know... and flowing metal.

05-13-2008, 05:11 AM
Didn't stop them doing it though

05-13-2008, 05:16 AM
and why are there EAGLES in the city? I know the view pointer,yea but -- eagles dont fly where people live.

05-13-2008, 05:17 AM
No, they hunt smallish rodents and stuff in tree and grass areas. but then, they're there as more of a subjective thing for Desmond I think

05-13-2008, 08:13 AM
i wonder -- do other citizens know they're there. cause birds do have shadows.

05-13-2008, 09:08 AM
If you'd actually wear the hidden blade outside for self defense (I'm assuming you aren't a psychopath), I'd advise don't.

Buy a Kubotan. They don't kill (easy) and they do a LOT of pain.

05-13-2008, 09:36 AM
i am thinking to wear it on the inside -- HIDDEN is the key word.

EDIT: have you got a picture of a kubotan?

05-13-2008, 11:03 AM
I prefer tonfa myself. In most countries they're considered legal as long as you don't wear them overtly concealed (oxymoron ftw)

EDIT: have you got a picture of a kubotan? Hidden don't mean a thing when you get searched. Concealed weapons, especially, are not a pleasant thing to be found with. Kubotans are legal to be concealed, as they're specifically for self defence.


05-13-2008, 11:20 AM
So are tonfa. And they look cool http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

05-13-2008, 02:05 PM
so how does the kubotan work exactly
what's the size of it?

05-14-2008, 07:48 AM
They're about twelve inches long I believe. A bit like a police asp, but without the spring load. And they just really hurt when you whack people with them. Some kind of dense alloy type thing

05-14-2008, 07:50 AM
you don't stick people?

05-14-2008, 08:13 AM
'Fraid not. It's blunt. That's why it's legal

05-14-2008, 08:34 AM
i'll keep looking

05-14-2008, 08:36 AM
The art book I bought from Ebay arrived today. It has enough images in there for me to have a blacksmith make an almost perfect replica. I'd better get busy

05-14-2008, 08:38 AM
i don't think we have blacksmiths over here... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

05-14-2008, 08:42 AM
In Canada? I'm sure you will have somewhere. I know a few people in the Canada area (broadly speaking) I can get them to scout around for me

05-14-2008, 08:48 AM
hmmm... looks like i found some websites of smithies here...

05-14-2008, 08:50 AM
I'm dubious about using websites for something like this. I'd always much rather see them in person. That way you can be certain it will be made exactly the way you want it

05-14-2008, 08:51 AM
you're right.
have you got #s so i can call and go over and see what they do?
maybe even the short blade too.

05-14-2008, 08:56 AM
The only blacksmiths I know are in the UK, and they're the friend of a friend variety so it'll take a little time to get hold of them. But if you don't mind the international call charges I can certainly pass on numbers when I have them

05-14-2008, 09:14 AM
sure, pass them on.
when i want something badly enough nothing stands in the way.

Hehe, a woman after my own heart

hey, i wanted the game so bad i bought myself a new computer...
my dad was rolling his eyes the whole time

I wish I could do that

Buy a new computer. I seriously need a job

05-14-2008, 10:14 AM
myself being jobless now, i see your point.
pressure mounts... christ!

05-14-2008, 10:17 AM
Yes, now does every understand how I was able to get such an insane number of posts in such a short space of time?

05-14-2008, 10:24 AM
good point.

05-14-2008, 10:26 AM
But since I plan to get a wireless ISP once I go to work I'll still be able to make stupid amounts of postings as well

05-14-2008, 10:30 AM
are you trying to set a record?

05-14-2008, 10:33 AM

Good luck finding about $700-$1200 lying around your house (click the linky)

thanks marek.

looks awesome

05-15-2008, 08:34 PM
lol, yeah they look good and all that, but they charge a lot. Maybe one day when I win the lottery or something = )

05-16-2008, 04:40 AM
i need a job right now. then i can order best sharp short blade ever... and of course the hidden blade (the standard equipment)
