Solid Steel Two Finger Cut Down Knuckle Duster

Solid Steel Two Finger Cut Down Knuckle Duster - My second solid steel knuckle duster - Made to be held so that the middle and ring fingers are in the finger holes, and the two other fingers are supported by the outer grooves, this one was originally going to be a four finger knuckle duster but the metal had a defect were it was welded together and that part came off while they were being made.

The pattern on the metal is from natural rust that was on the metal, then ground down to leave a shiny surface but still keeping the rust pits, I may also blue the metal at a later date.
The knuckle duster features no spikes but instead has flat striking surfaces,
The size is suited to Medium to large hands/fingers, and are not really suited to small or slim fingers.
These are not actually cut down knuckle dusters / brass knuckles, they were made this way, but were originally going to be a full size four finger knuckle duster.
Features Oval style finger holes and a curved palm rest,
Weight is pretty heavy due to them being solid steel, even though they aren't that thick they still weigh twice as much as a aluminium knuckle duster of the same size.

Features various makers marks, WC-11, U.K, M.B.

Overall a great new piece for my collection and one I thought I would never have, they are very comfortable, although one thing I would say is that when you have gotten used to aluminium knuckle dusters you tend to find materials like steel and brass to be very heavy when carried in your pockets.
One of my current favourites at the moment, good for EDC if legal where you live.

Dimensions - 80mm wide, 72mm high, 8mm thick, Finger holes are 22mm wide and 30mm high approx.
