Old Red Knuckle Duster
Although a slightly unusual design knuckle duster / brass knuckles it is very basic and is copied from one of the all time most traditional designs there is but just changed a bit.
Painted using red nail varnish and a clear coat of varnish, it stayed on the metal reasonably well but I have still not found a decent reasonably priced commercial paint that will not come of off the aluminium when carried in the pocket.
The size for this Knuckle Duster is medium hands, but may fit large hands as well, features round finger holes and a curved palm rest and round striking surfaces.
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, and was made around 2002 or before.
Overall a good old knuckle duster and unusual design.
Dimensions - 115mm wide, 70mm high, 6mm thick, Finger holes are 26mm wide and 32mm high.
Please leave a comment letting me know what you think! Thanks.
