Handmade Solid Aluminium Kubaton (Kubotan)

Diagram shows possible improvements

Handmade Solid Aluminium Kubaton - A standard size Kubaton or Yawara stick, made for self-defense in a close-quarter situation, the principal areas for attacks in self-defense include bony, fleshy and nerve targets such as knuckles, forearms, bridge of the nose, shins, stomach, solar plexus, spine, temple, ribs, groin, neck, eyes etc. The Kubotan is usually held in either an icepick grip (for hammerfist strikes) or forward grip (for stabbing and pressure point attacks). Common uses include hardening the fist (fistload) for punching, attacking vulnerable parts of an assailant's body, and gaining leverage on an assailant's wrist, fingers and joints.

The Kubaton features a triangular style spike striking surface for use in a standard forward punching motion, this outer striking surface sits between the middle and index finger, it also has two other striking surfaces similar to a meat tenderiser, the entire tool supports all four fingers and has a flat palm rest.
The size is suited to Medium hands/fingers, but will fit smaller hands.

Weight is pretty heavy for its size and thickness.

Features the makers mark - WC-10, and KUBATON 1

Overall I would say this is a great little Kubaton, although with some adjustments could be even better.
These are also great concealable self defence weapons, due it its size it could be hidden in many places.

Dimensions - 80mm wide, 63mm high, 15mm thick.

  1. Hello WeaponCollector

    First let me express my apreciation for you collection and the work you kept on
    I'm a fan of your urban survival prybars and started to make my own following
    your design.
    I'm also a custom knife maker. You can see some on my products here:

    Also your site seems to be the wikipedia of knuckle dusters !!!

    For this reason I need your help about this:
    I'd like to start making custom knuckles too, and I've seen a lot of cool designs on your blog.
    I'd like to ask you :
    - does the finger hole need to be larger than the diameter of your finger?
    - if so, how much? 1mm? 3mm?
    - as for the thickness of the "ring" aroung the finger, how thick is it?
    - Do you think that aluminium is a good material for knuckles? does it stand the impact?

    Thanks a lot in advance
