As I recall hidden blade mechanism has been modified, so you don't need to lose a finger.

I can't lose my thumb, because of texting. I cant lose my index, I love to point. I cant lose my middle finger, because fuck people. I cant lose my ring finger because, its my ring finger. I can't lose my pinkie, because, my sign language will blow nut's! So, too chose this rationally, I would lose, my ring finger, depending on the hand, if its my right I wouldn't mind, since I cat use that finger as of now anyways.

I'd lose my index fingers.

"Take this test: Try doing pull-ups without using your little fingers, and then do the same without your first fingers, and you'll get an idea of how disabling it is to lose the pinky...

Many people get this wrong. They assume that the little finger, the pinky, is the one to say goodbye to....

A lot of people think the first, pointing finger is the most important one they have. Wrong! Once it's gone, the other three compensate for it quite well. The second finger, for instance, is already pretty similar to the first finger.

The pinky is actually incredibly important, and it's a keeper. Basically, the reason humans have "opposable" thumbs — the springboard of our evolution from being just another ape — is that the thing doing the most opposing is the little finger.

According to the assistant chief of hand surgery at the NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases, the little finger does a disproportionate amount of gripping, while all the other guys are its helpers:

The other three digits—the index, the thumb and the middle finger—they fine tune where the tool goes. So if you have your little finger amputated, you're going to lose a significant amount of grip strength when holding everyday small objects. When you talk about utensils—like knives and forks—most of that stuff is fine manipulation rather than strength, so you're typically using the other three digits. You use the thumb, the index and the middle fingers in order to hold a spoon, or to hold a fork, or even to hold a pen and write things."

Ya I know, but if I had to lose a finger, might as well use the original hidden blade

I bet a lot of people have already said this answer (I haven't checked everyone's response yet, ha ha), but I'd cut off my pinky because I feel as if that's the least important finger of the hand.

Dunno about that, but I will tell you this. Few months ago I injured left hand point finger and right hand thumb. Because I'm frequently heavy duty worker I couldn't use those two finger, so I separate them with bandages to avoid getting hurt again. After few day every part of both hand were stiff and painful because of that.

The ring finger on my right hand is probably the least used finger I have - so that. I dislike it when people don't use their pinky.

Honestly, I think the best one to cut off would be your ring finger..
You actually use your pinky a lot and I think the middle finger would handle just fine without it's neighbor.

Kind of a sick question. But sick answers aren't allowed.
