    For those of you who have seen the preview for a game called assasin's creed, you may remember that he used daggers which portruded from devices on his wrist. When he needed them, the daggers slid forward, parallel to his arms, so that he could stab an enemy my grabbing him. Has anyone seen weapons like these anywhere on the internet?

    Not to mention, he lacks a finger so he can use it properly :D

    Wanna trade your finger?

    Actually, the blade doesn't come out of his finger, but out of a mechanism attached to his wrist. I don't know if that was what you meant, but I know that the idea has come up after some people saw concept illustrations that made it look like the blade came out of his stub. In actuality, as shown by an early trailer to the game, he grips the blade between his middle and pinky fingers, where his ring finger would normally be, adding to the impression of it actually protruding from inside his hand.

    No, I meant that he lacks a finger, so that the blade may come out to where his finger should be.

    There was a similar device used by the Jigsaw Killer in the Saw movie. He twists his wrist to send the blade out to slash Danny Glover's character's throat toward the middle/tail end of the movie, so I'm sure that you might be able to find it somewhere, just not quite legally.

    A Katar is hardly a wrist blade...it's a giant handle to hold onto with your hand.

    yea ok.. I know, its an Indian weapon. I just remember the Assassin in D2 had that kind of weapons on her, she had a passive skill for claw weapons.. and that thing was considered as such weapon.
