Smiley Face Knuckle Duster - Homemade

Smiley Face Knuckle Duster - A two finger smiley face design knuckle duster, designed by my friend from YouTube - CATmover1 - as part of a knuckle duster design competition, this design was placed in the top three out of a hundred or more designs. Made to look like a smiley type face and to be used using the middle finger and ring finger in the finger holes as shown in a few of the pictures, although it looks cool it is not very practical because of the round finger holes, this makes it very uncomfortable, but this could be gotten around by making the design again but with smaller finger holes.
The size for this Knuckle Duster is medium hands, features two round finger holes and two cut in sections to accommodate the other two fingers and a curved palm rest.
Weight is low due it to its thickness and being made of aluminium.
Features no makers marks but was made by the same person who makes most of my other knuckle dusters.
Overall a very original piece and a one off too, also could be finished better, but would still  make a great display piece and talking point, it could also be carried and possibly not recognised for what it is.

Dimensions - 65mm wide, 70mm high, 12mm thick, Finger holes are 28mm round approx.

Hand Made Knuckle Duster

Ordinary Style Knuckle Duster - an ordinary design knuckle duster  / brass knuckles, very basic / standard design and one of the all time most traditional too. Virtually any brass knuckles you see on t.v or films are usually this design, it is the most common out there, although a common design this is still a very nice knuckle duster and one of the most comfortable to use and widely used due to the fact it has no spikes and can be found almost any where, and from my own personal experience I have noticed most people would rather have a set like these over any others.
The size for this Knuckle Duster is medium hands, but may fit large hands as well, Features oval finger holes and a curved palm rest and round striking surfaces.
Weight is average due it to its thickness and being made of aluminium.
Features no makers marks but was made by the same person who makes most of my other knuckle dusters.
Overall this is one of my favourites and is one of the best traditional design knuckle dusters I own.
I now keep this particular knuckle duster in a display case on the wall near my bed.

One Finger GRI-GRI Ring Knuckle Duster

One Finger GRI-GRI ring Knuckle Duster - A ring style one finger knuckle duster often referred to as a gri-gri style knuckle duster, this one was made specifically to look like a ring when worn, but if used gives you a bigger advantage than any ring could.
On top of the knuckle duster there is a stone embedded into the knuckle duster to give it an even more ring like look. 
The size is suited to Medium hands only because it needs to fit the wearer well, if ill fitted it would either not work as a brass knuckle if too tight or it will not look like a ring if too big.

weight is low due the size and it being Aluminum,
These have no spikes, just the stone on top.
Features no makers mark, but was made by the person who makes most of my other knuckle dusters.

It is also very attractive and makes a great conversation piece too.

Handmade 1918 Trench Knife Handle



1918 Trench Knife Handle Copy - A handmade Copy of the famous World War One 1918 trench knife handles.
Newly designed remake knuckle duster trench knife handle, designed by myself and is directly copied from the old trench knives of World War One although with a few differences.
Although a trench knife handle this actually has no hole for a blade but could easily have a hole drilled and a blade inserted.
The differences from the originals are - No hand Guard at the top, and the originals had a flat palm rest.
The finger holes are made to fit the fingers in one way only and they get smaller as they go along, this makes for a very comfortable knuckle duster.
The last picture shows the original design I drew up, as you can see it came out virtually the same as the design.
The size is suited to Medium or Large hands.
Features oval finger holes and a mainly  flat palm rest that has a slight curve to it, and five Spikes, four over the fingers for punching, and a large Skull Crusher Spike Pommel used in a hammer blow move, each of these spikes have a groove cut into the bottom of them to make them look even better.
Weight is average due the size and it being Aluminum and in my opinion this weight is perfect, I feel with its size brass would be too heavy.
Features various makers marks on both sides, U.K 2010 = place of origin and date made, W.C = Maker, U.K 2010 is a tribute to the U.S 1918 that the originals had imprinted on them.
Another of my favourites (I have many, lol), and I have always wanted one of these, so that's another piece that I wanted for years added to my collection.
They are very comfortable and will look great on display, I hope you like them as much as I do.

Dimensions - 130mm wide, 80mm high, 28mm thick, Finger holes are 25mm wide and 30mm high approx.
Spikes are approx 15mm.
