Brass Knuckles Information

  • Using Brass Knuckles:
    When striking with brass knuckles the best places to hit are hard places, i.e. the outside of the forearm, elbows, knees, shins and the head. Hitting someone in the stomach with them is not using them to their full effectiveness. Ideally no skin should touch the top and inside of the knuckles, and the pinky should not be touching the sides of its slot.

    All you need is one good solid punch, and the fight could be over!  Seriously!  A hit from someone using metal knuckles is usually extremely painful. A hard enough hit to the skull, sternum or spine can cause severe injury, if not death. It is for this reason that brass knuckles are considered to be one of the most effective hand-to-hand weapons that exists to date. If one were to believe in a 'fair fight' then brass knuckles would be the last weapon that is considered in a respectable and fair combat between two individuals on the street as it is not a proof of strength; rather it is an enhancement of the punch. However in saying this, the idea of a fair fight on the street is ridiculed by many and for this reason brass knuckles are regarded as being legitimate for carrying by many street thugs.

 

  • Brass Knuckles Uses:
    Brass knuckles have appeared in various movies and TV shows as well.  Some recent appearances include a normal pair of brass knuckles wielded on D-Day in Band of Brothers. Professional wrestler William Regal uses brass knucks on occasion and calls the move "The Power of the Punch".

    They are popular in the Hardcore music culture, due to the "tough guy" nature of the listeners.

    During World War I, brass knuckles were used in hand-to-hand combat in trench raiding operations, and were incorporated into the handle of some trench knives.

    On an episode of WWE RAW, Eric Bischoff handed Chris Jericho brass knuckles during Jericho's "You're Fired" match with John Cena. John Cena also occasionally uses brass knuckles; his are engraved with "WORD LIFE".

    There are even some martial arts employing this weapon.

    In the film Constantine, the main character, John Constantine, uses a pair of brass knuckles with crosses etched into them in his fight with Balthazar.
