Default Brass knuckles

Does anyone know why brass knuckles have the screw pin on the side?

That makes them (technically) a "belt buckle" and not an illegal weapon like they are in many areas.... like North Carolina (wimps).

Ha Ha... That's works for me... OR (just throwing this out there) they make ABS high-impact knuckle dusters too; http://www.security-wizard.net/plkn.html ... Perfectly legal to carry in Nawth Cackalakee... Just a piece of plastic.

and when you end up in a court of law with an illegal deadly weapon calling it a paperweight isnt going to carry much water when its obviously a set knucks.

you can paint daisies on a landmine and screw in some bolts to the side and call it a piece of "yard art" but its still a landmine.

No worries, I don't carry them lol I carry my EDC and my hawk bill, both perfectly legal lol
Btw everywhere that sells them calls them paper weights, but I def understand your land mine analogy

Brass knuckles are still legal (to a degree) in Mississippi. Hell, butterfly knives are still legal, here.
I used to have a bras knuckle, as a kid, but I have long since lost it. Really wish I still had it.
