Non-brass knuckles?
 
I love the concept of brass knuckles as a self-defense tool, but am pretty sure they're outlawed. Is there anything made that is similar, maybe incorporating a metal fistpack, like a Kubotan, with some sort of non-metallic knuckle cover? I just like the idea of being able to protect the skin on my knuckles.

Then you better try a pair of gloves. The state criminal codes will usually not say BRASS, but will say "metal knuckles".

Look for a pair of sap gloves. Ive seen them for sale online for like $25 im sure they are illegal to carry on your person but you should still be able to own them. I just looked them up on youtube, some interesting stuff.

Protect the skin??? Men are meant to have scars on there knuckles.

I was under the impression that they were legal, you just had to have a CCW?

It DOES vary from state to state. I'm not sure, but I think in MS you have to have a concealed carry permit. One of those things where someone should sit down and do their research or talk to a lawyer.

Varies state to state. Here in VA, your permit is for a concealed HANDGUN, Says that right on the permit.

Illegal here on Fl. I think kubatons are now too, I haven't seen them forsake in like ten years. As far as getting around the knuckles you can buy ones that also work as a "belt buckle".

Hmmm sounds like it's invention time.

In high school we hand compressed tin foil tightly and rolled it into light weight fistpacks.
