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.
