Brass knuckles are also sometimes known as knuckles, knucks and brass knucks. Another name for them is knuckle dusters.
These are weapons that are used in hand-to-hand combat. The Brass knuckles can be best described as pieces of metal that
is mostly steel. It is shaped in such a way that it is a perfect fit around the knuckles. It has been designed in such a
way as to both preserve and also focus the punch's force when it is directed to the intended surface with a heavy impact.
Not only is it very lethal but can also inflect temporary damage to the victim's bones. The brass knuckle has an extended
grip that just spreads across the assailant palm.
Other than the brass knuckle there are also knuckle knives that are custom made according to the requirements of the
people. They had been very famous amongst the American soldiers during the second World. There are some knuckle dusters as
well that come with rounded rings that have an added impact of blows.
