"Skee-an Doo" is the easiest way to say it. Smiley
The handle was traditionally made of peat bog oak, black oak, and is very dense and tough and usually carved into Celtic knotwork. Nowadays though it`s also made of antler, horn and even brass on occasion. Cheesy And most menfolks wear them tucked into the kilt hose...I suspect one under the armpit could be a tad uncomfortable. Maybe tucking one into the belt under a shirt would also be good? Smiley
When it comes to weapons other than firearms (of which I have very limited knowledge) I`m all in favour of the almost silent kind... bows, crossbows, daggers and suchlike Smiley

On the wrist
It's simple. You punch the skull, squeeze a trigger with your fingers and 4 small pellets go flying into someones brain matter
Beautiful...simply beautiful.

As for me..I noticed that its easier to get caught with custom or un-common weapons (of course, we all know that with our amazing skills we can escape any hostile situation with ease, but its rather unnecessary and time consuming) Therefore, I use weapons that can easily be purchased on main-stream online stores or shopping centers (e.g go into walmart and buy a bunch of kitchen knives) this way you are never caught...of course you must not leave finger prints. For this, i suggest burning them off and then wearing gloves for extra protection.

Personally I prefer several khukris, both large and small, scattered about my person. Oh, and stillettos of course (the knives, lads, not the bloody shoes. or even not bloody, muddy, or otherwise soiled). and a saber or two.

The funny thing about guns is that people get so uptight when one uses them in public...

That's why I go for the concealed sort
Because they're so close range, you get minimal noise and, unlike knives, are a sure kill.

I think I should also mention I had a dream about this game, only Bailey was a woman...

I assure you, that incident in Singapore was all a misunderstanding.

I'm rather fond of a thin garrote on a small clockwork winder that can be passed off as a double ring. Slide the ring off, separate the two halves and pull to unwind the wire.  Once you have dealt with the target you simply activate the winder and once it is all back in place slide on your perfectly normal ring.

Ah poison....

I went to the zoo and stole some poison dart frogs...easy (and free)  source of poison right there....

But alas...poison is more my fiance's department than mine (its a love-hate-attempt at murder type of relationship,ya dig?)
 I more prefer the choke them out then slit their throat method....

sometimes I prefer simple defenestration. There was this one chap in Salzburgh awhile back; fought like a lion to keep from having it done to him. It was only a second-story window. Ah, but now that I think on it, I recall the rather spiky iron fence directly below... Messy things, aren't they...

But...what of clean-up? If not by poison or knives then cleanup is a messy thing...and you get your prints everywhere....

Hear hear.  And what's more, if you did get blood on yourself and you're in a position in which said blood will be noticed before you have an opportunity to  change your dress, you are a complete amateur.

Oh on the contrary...

I wear a snow-white tuxedo which I used to brutally kill somebody in.
The suit now has a "splatter" effect coming from the left side across to the right.
Most people assume the red is dye and that it is a fashion statement....

If you cannot pull-off the "i just murdered someone, but its ok cause i didnt really" look then you are amateur Wink

 At the Spy Museum where I work weekends we have a number of interesting devices on display.  We have the famous poison pellet umbrella, 18th Century "Gun rings" and lots of other fun toys.

I thrive on splashing the claret around.  Finesse and subtlety aren't my strong points, and I tend to undertake 'independent employment opportunities' in order to supplement my military pay and pension.  Basically, if it's brute force, bloodshed and bodycount you require, and half the money is in my Swiss bank account (the other half on completion of your requirements.  Piece of advice, not a good idea to think you can short change me.  Just ask Baron Gustaf Van Horzestein.  Oh, that's right, you can't, or his personal bodyguards, immediate family, serving staff, business associates, or optometrist.), then I'm your man.

Very useful weapon... though the explosion is a tad too close to the finger for my liking...
And why pick on the optometrist? Tongue

Where do you think The Baron was when I decided to have a little chat about his outstanding bill?  That reminds me, the optometrist's assistant, receptionist/secretary and two people in the waiting room.  No eyes to see, no tales to tell.
