Man At Arms Weapon Forger Creates the Hidden Blade and Pirate Cutlass from Assassin’s Creed

In this week’s Man at Arms, master swordsmith Tony Swatton forges the Hidden Blade and Pirate Cutlass from the Assassin’s Creed series, just in time for Assassin’s Creed 4.

When starting the weapon, Swatton actually began reverse engineering a toy in order to recreate the mechanism that would release the hidden blade. He’ll then turn a thick cable called Cable Damascus into a solid bar and shape it into the actual blade for the hidden weapon.

After that blade was forged, he decided to also create a Cutlass since his specialty is in swords. What’s interesting is that the Cutlass design and forging process is heavily based off of the work he’s done for Pirates of the Caribbean, specifically Elizabeth Swan and Jack Sparrow’s own swords in the franchise.

Check out the entire video below for the whole forging process.
