Home Made Skull Knuckle Duster / Brass Knuckles











The Skull Knuckle Duster / Brass Knuckles, a large skull shaped knuckle duster, designed by myself, and was at the time a 100% one off design and one of only two ever made (so far). one is owned by myself and the other is owned by a good friend of mine and another knuckle duster collector who has even more than I do, (he may have the largest collection there is).
Currently the two skulls that have been produced are in the U.K and the U.S.A.
I had been personally trying to design a good Skull knuckle duster for years and one day got my inspiration from a very unlikely source, that being the t.v series South Park, after watching the episode i went on to finish my design as it is now.
As mentioned above, the design is that of a skull, and can be held either way - top of skull or teeth as palm rest.
Is made from solid Aluminium, and features two oblong finger holes in the style of the of "deaths head" knuckle duster, the detail on the knuckle duster is cut into the metal, featured in the bottom picture is the original design and the knuckle duster itself in a very rough state.
Weight is average due its size and it being made of Aluminium.
Features several  makers marks - WC-10 - maker and year made, and U.K.
Overall a absolute classic design and very attractive and one of my all time favorites and certainly my best design ever, makes a great display pieceand even better talking point and could be used if need be.

Dimensions - 125mm wide, 125mm high, 12mm thick, Finger holes are 45mm wide and 30mm high.

Knuckle Duster /  Brass Knuckles Machete
Knuckle Duster /  Brass Knuckles Machete
Knuckle Duster / Brass Knuckles Machete, - Sometimes refered to as Trenchete - Trench Knife Machete, or Zombie Killing Machine
As far as I know this is a one off or was at the time I got it, the handle is made from a 1 inch thick aluminium plate and the blade is a tramontina Machete Blade.
Would have been an awesome trench weapon / knife during World War One or even World War Two.
The handle was removed from the machete and made ready for the new handle.
To insert the blade a slit is cut into the back of the handle and then the blade is insert, holes are then drilled and self tapping screws are put in place to hole the blade.
Weight is heavy due to the big handle and larg blade.
Overall a great conversation piece, although not great for any real practical uses, apart from Zombie killing, lol.
Features Oval style finger holes, flat palm rest, Skull crusher spike and a nylon sheath.
Overall the knife weighs 1Lb 12oz

Dimensions - blade:36cm, Overall:50cm, Handle:13cm, Width of handle:1"inch, handle is 8cm.

My Lock Back Knives Collection.




My Lock Back Knives Collection.

Locking knives, such as the lock back knife have locking mechanism such as a catch that must be released in a distinct action before the knife can be folded. This lock improves safety by preventing accidental blade closure while cutting. In contrast, slip joint knives rely only on a small sliding spring to keep the blade open, and if enough force is applied to the back of the knife, the blade will close.

This Blog entry features pictures of my lock back knives, In the pics are a few Andujar knives, a Scrimshaw lock back, a Camp U.S.A Branded knife, a Boker Magnum brand knife and a CRKT Cascade knife, and a few other classic style lock knives, all knives (as the title suggests) are Lock Backs, which refers to the locking mechanism, some also features Thumbs studs for easy/fast opening. All are medium size knives that are approx 12cm closed and 21cm open, a few have real animal horn handles and some are hard woods.
