  1. The SRD only gives a means to determine costs and weights of weapons for Large and Small versions based on the Medium weapons. Any other supplied values are the author's best determination.

This weapon is meant to be similar to the hidden blade from "Assassin's Creed" with a few major changes. First, the blade is now on the top part of the arm as opposed to under the arm. Second, the blade is longer, more closely treated as a longsword instead of a dagger.

As a Free Action the blade is sprung forward, and due to the quick action and concealed location the first attack made with the Arm Blade treats the foe as Flat-Footed. The blade must be retracted for at least three rounds to gain this bonus again. Treat as a Longsword with a Locking Gauntlet. While hidden, an opponent can spot the Arm Blade by succeeding at a Spot check verses the player's Slight of Hand check, which has a +10 Bonus.
