Lipstick pistol

This spy tool relies on the power of disguise.Its 4.5 millimeter and only delivers a single-shots so the spy using it had to be a good aimer. It was supposedly taken from a KGB agent in the mid-1960s.The lipstick pistol currently resides at the Jiangsu National Security Education Museum (Which does not allow foreigners in due to security reasons).A female spy would most likely use this and pretend she needed to use her lipstick then in a split second aim the lipstick pistol and kill the target.

Exploding rats

Now this one may sound weird but it is in fact real.The exploding rat was introduced in World War II by Britain's Special Operations Executive (SOE). Who made a clever plan to blow up enemy boilers by hiding exploding rats in German coal piles. Supposedly, an unsuspecting enemy would simply toss the dead rat into the nearby fire to dispose of the body and it would explode. This is one of the best plans carried out in World War II.

Exploding chocolate

During World War II Adolf Hitler had his bomb makers make a chocolate which was coated with explosive devices with a thin layer of rich dark chocolate. They then packaged it in black and gold paper.They also branded the chocolate Peters Chocolate. But the plot was foiled by British spies who discovered the chocolate was being made and tipped off by Lord Victor Rothschild. This event is what made the name for the dessert "death by chocolate".

Pistol glove

Another Spy tool introduced at The time of the World War II the Pistol glove could be fired with the twitch of a finger. It gave the wearer the ability to get within point blank range before firing a lethal shot the capacity of the gun was only a single shot though and it wouldn't be a good weapon to use if the target had security with guns.This weapon is not really effective in assassinations and the shooter would need to be close to the target. This weapon currently resides at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans.
