The first recorded use of a Hidden Blade was during an assassination in 465 BCE. The weapon used was composed of a simple mechanism that was worn on the right arm, and extended the Hidden Blade from under the sleeve.
This Hidden Blade changed the Order’s means of assassination, as Assassins had hitherto relied upon daggers, poison and even serpents to do their work.
Throughout the centuries, the Hidden Blade has taken on several ritualistic aspects, with the very mechanism of the weapon refined to reflect the importance of its use, as well.
