Not-So-Brass Knuckles

Feeling thuggish today? I was highly amused after finding a whole slew of unrelated products designed after a lethal weapon. These items are interesting concepts, especially since brass knuckles were designed to fit comfortably in a fist. There are plenty of things out there that we need to hold comfortably for extended periods of time, and re-designing tools after a pre-existing, highly ergonomic weapon seems like the proper way to be inspired.

Next time I want to bring out some of my inner thug, I'll be sure to keep these aptly designed items in mind!


  1. These are great! Not very practical if one has smaller or larger than "standard" hands though!

  2. Haha true. Makes me wonder if normal brass knuckles come in S, M, L, etc variations. Either way, I think most would buy these for the novelty of the item, not for the practicality ;)

  3. My goodness! I had no idea brass knuckles were having such an artistic revival! That umbrella is PRICELESS :D

  4. I also had no idea--until I saw these hilarious products!
