There is something ascetically pleasing about the shape of brass knuckles that I thought would be accentuated by the beauty of wood grains. When this custom finger fit slips on, it just feels right in my hand and ironically has a calming and peaceful sensation. It was made more to appease my curiosity and for a decoration rather than for any type of application lol.

-- What? I didn't "break" it, I was just testing its durability, and then I "placed" it in the woods because it's made of wood and I just thought he should be with his family.

The local lumber shop must be a pretty rough place in your area :)

Nice shaping. I like them :-D

Looking at the grain direction… wouldnt the knuckles split in half, if they were actually used?
Thoughts?

Haha yeah I guess that is entirely possible. Good thing they are just for show.

Debbie Downer weighing in: might be a felony to be caught out with these. Metal “brass knuckles” for sure are a felony in my state. Wood… maybe, maybe not. So be careful.

Haha that’s a good point, I appreciate the concern.
