<span class="ev_code_RED">A tip: Once you've made your first one you'll probably want to change it around and feel free to do so, if you make a really good one please post a video of it or VERY VERY clear instructions</span>

Here are my instructions on how to make a paper and cardboard hidden blade http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Don't go all agro and say there's already a post like this but no-one posts on that so i felt it was my responsibility as an AC fan to help (patriotism to AC...)

Note: I only made the cardboard one and that was after seeing the paper one

Equipment: 4 sheets of paper, Youtube, scissors, LOTS of sticky tape, 2 pretty strong mini rubber bands and 2 blobs of blu-tack

Assassinís Creed Hidden Blade out of PAPER:

Part1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...on_580655&feature=iv (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8vgdr8bLJk&annotation_id=annotation_580655&feature=iv)

Part2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdaVbRjK-MQ&NR=1

Part3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...on_145977&feature=iv (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ya1tPC5eA8I&annotation_id=annotation_145977&feature=iv)

Part4: Cut remaining sheet of paper into arm bands and use blobs of blu-tack to stick bands together

Thats the paper one

Now cardboard one (basically that but way easier)

Equipment: A cardboard cereal box (Nutragrain seems strongest), scissors, LOTS of sticky tape, 2 pretty strong mini rubber bands and 2 blobs of blu-tack

Step 1: Get a cereal box

Step 2: Cut out a 5cm x 15cm rectangle, one 7.5cm x 17cm and one 8.5cm x 18cm rectangle

The Blade

Step 1: Fold 1st rectangle 5cm x 15cm (The Blade) into half (along the 5cm bit) and sticky tape it together
along the side

Step 2: Cut off pieces at one end to make it a point, cut off another 2 pieces at the other end to make a trapezium

Step 3: Sticky tape all edges

Shaft 1

Step 1: Take the 2nd rectangle 7.5cm x 17cm (Shaft 1) and fold it in half to create a crease on the half way mark. (fold along 7.5cm bit)

Step 2: Open up the folded rectangle.

Step 3: Fold one side about 1/3 way into the middle and the other piece 2/3 (so it overlaps)
You will now have a solid piece on the bottom and an overlapping flap.

Step 4: Sticky tape the overlapping flap onto the underlapping one... Fold it down and cut a rectangle so there's an open slit (check the videos)

Step 5: Sticky tape all the sides

Shaft 2:

Do the exact same as Shaft 1 with the last rectangle (8.5cm x 18cm)


Put a stopper on the end of the Blade Piece, near the trapezium that isnít the point.
A stopper is a little mound of cardboard to stop the blade sliding out

Put another stopper on the end of Shaft 1

Slide the Blade Piece through the slit in Shaft 1 and then slide that combined piece through the slit in Shaft 2

Put a rubber band on the Blade stopper and connect it to the front of Shaft 1 (sticky tape WELL)

Place the other rubber band on the back of Shaft 1 (on the stopper) and connect to the front of Shaft 2

(Blade should be able to go to back of Shaft 1 but no further and shouldn't be able to go closer than the stopper is to the point...) (Shaft 1 should be able to go to back of Shaft 2 but no further and to front of Shaft 2 but no further)

Pull Shaft 1 into Shaft 2 and pull the blade into Shaft 1 and let go (should go flying forward)

NOTE: It's much easier if the whole thing is gravity activated (no rubber bands and everything a bit bigger so it slides very very easily)

gravity activated MUCH easier cause no rubber bands that way

08-27-2010, 10:47 PM
?????? what does that have to do with thte tockpic

08-27-2010, 10:48 PM
a gravity activated hidden blade is easier to make and use rather than a rubber band activated hidden blade

08-27-2010, 10:49 PM
oh. thats cool i guess http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

08-27-2010, 10:50 PM

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif oh noes! must not be that sturdy

08-27-2010, 10:57 PM
yep it was rubber band activated (very not realiable) lol i know that was horrible english

I'm gonna make a gravity activated one now so I won't be on for about 15 minutes and please STAY ON THE TOPIC!

try making a hidden blade

08-27-2010, 11:01 PM
haha I'll try http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif it's too late right now to start but I'll probably take a crack at it in the mornin'

08-27-2010, 11:04 PM
kk, i'll post my G.A one once i've finished it (G.A is Gravity Activated, RB.A is RubberBand Activated

08-28-2010, 01:18 AM
YAY! I've finished the G.A Hidden Blade!!! It looks kinda good (grrr) it only goes vertically (grrr) and the blade keeps on falling out but meh i'm okay with that http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Basically here's some advice:

Just do whatever, each time you make one change the design a bit =)

08-28-2010, 01:20 AM
