Great Knuckleduster From a Wind Up Key.





Introduction: Great Knuckleduster From a Wind Up Key.

Or a giant wing nut.

Ok so this i'ble is on a handmade knuckleduster that
doesn't look like one when the coppas get you.

Now i find this more comfortable and effective than
regular "knucks" and a whole lot more comfortable too.

Step 1: Doo Whatsits and Whadjamacallits

What you need

Giant wing nut and bolt or big windd up key
(size shown in pic)

Gorilla glue

Fake (or real) leather scrap.

Step 2: Sizing and Glueing

Put the scrap lengthwise and fold over top. (first pic)

Fold The bottom up (second pic)

Once you have done that to try out get the gorilla glue and wipe
it over it than fold as in first parts of this step.

Step 3: Prettyfieng and Curing.

Once the glue is on get some nylon or other string and wrap
around the wing nut (or wind up key) at all the curves)

After a while it will stop being sticky and you can test
it out.

Step 4: Fnished!

Use for whatever you want within the perimeters of the law
or just keep in your pocket to feel safe.

You can varnish or buff it if you want but anyway ENJOY!

    Just be sure to inquire about your city/county/state/country's laws before carrying this on your person.

    In a lot of places, it's not just what an item is that makes it a weapon, but how you intend to use it.

    For example, as far as I can make out, where I live, the cops won't give you any trouble for a 3 1/2 inch folding knife, but knuckledusters, tasers and mace are a big no-no. Kinda backwards, I know, but it can be that way.

    I Just carry a Stanley screwdriver and maybe a hammer so if someone ask why I just say I'm a worker xD

    lol I carry a detachable tazer, when i rip it in halves it looks like a battery and a broken circut box, hehehehe

    hI (Hermann ?) . When i was 20 military service was compulsory, the barracks were in a place where people didn't really liked our short crops. Every friday there were fights. I have always avoided them by that simple technique : stay calm and steady and NEVER look angry shouting people in the eyes..

    r 4 man specifically nothing puzzle like about the name. in the army did people try to mug you if so what did you do about it give them your stuff and hope they leave you alone? ps i got a message calling the creator dirty names because there is no reason to put a rusty piece of metal into someone you do not intend to kill even then only reason to kill is for mass defense (family protection, job as an officer, war ect)

    I wish I could walk around by myself and not carry anything for my own protection and still feel safe. I wish that I wasn't in danger of being kidnapped or raped and the police find me somewhere a few hours too late. But the thing is, I'm a young woman. I'm not strong, and I could never overpower a man. I agree that weapons are abused and misused, but sometimes, you need to be able to protect yourself. It can be impossible to talk to and make peace with someone who is sick in the head. Pepper spray is probably a good solution for people like that. I felt the need to throw this out there, because I have been stalked and carrying nothing does NOT make me feel safe. Other than that, this is a creative Instructable, though I'd never use it. -B

    BTW, Duck-Lemon, I had a sense that you were a little more mature than this. I got that impression from your other instructables. You said you took martial arts, there I can relate with you. Weapons are used by weak people and people that are afraid and unconfident in their ability to judge danger and deal with appropriately. For these people a weapon becomes a liablity. Only if they encounter someone more afraid than them will they be successful. This is why people are "accidently" killed 1000's of times a year in fights. Fear and insecurity. If you are confident and brave, you do not make a weapon in peacetime with the hopes of using it. You learn to sense the level of danger. Your confidence is your weapon. 99% of the time the agressor (especially if they are brandishing a weapon) is more afraid of you than you are of them. They are holding that weapon to compensate for their weakness. If you show no fear and show confidence in your ability to protect yourself from them, they will back down more often than not. I have had a gun to my head twice, been stabbed once, cut many times, a baseball bat across the head, and a 2x4 broken across my face. I live yet and so do the aggressors (though it was close with the 2x4 punks.) I didn't look for trouble. And in all but one case, I was protecting someone else. Walk away whenever you can. Those I was protecting didn't. They could have, but they didn't. If you find yourself dreaming up scenarios and fantasizing about fighting, it means you are lacking in confidence or bitter about your self-image of weakness and helplessness. The best weapon you can ever carry is right there on your shoulders and the second best is in your chest. If you must injure someone to defend yourself and the situation is abated, it is your duty to do everything you can to preserve their life unless you are still in danger. That means dressing a wound, stopping bleeding, and calling for help, and not trying to hide your weapon of destruction. If you were truly defending yourself and had no other choice, you show your confidence in that by being truthful and doing what you can to keep the person alive. And if you had another choice, you should have taken it. For, if not, you are just as bad as the agressor. Never "defend" yourself out of anger. There is no reason for that. You just do what you have to do to survive and to protect your family. Trust me from experience, the first time you have to seriously injure someone to defend yourself, your heart will ache terribly. It's NOT as glamorous as it looks in the movies.

    I read all of your comments and i really have no intention of ever using it. I posted this instructable because: The pocket sized contest. People seemed to like knuckle dusters and the ones on this site are all fatally flawed. I too think weapons are brutal and unglamorous and i am glad you posted for the benefit of other users of instructables.

    Thanks duck, my apologies for nagging. I have seen way too much violence in my life and it is difficult to watch others take it so lightly.

    -- Old fart mode on -- What is it with kids and "prison weapons" anyway? Knex guns, knex grenades, PVC beating sticks (that shatter and slice your OWN eye open. I just don't get it. And yeah, I was a kid once too. But we used to actually fight like men. It's all fun until you get the brilliant idea to use it and we get to hear about you on TV. BTW, before any little wannabe boys start "representin' their street" I grew up (and still live) in one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the 3rd dangerous city in the country and I have to have to kill someone accidentally because I watch too much TV. One day, you will come to realize that it takes a real man to walk away. People are extremely fragile and your life can take a serious turn in a matter of seconds even from simple fist-fighting. Hopefully, you won't kill anyone with your "knuckleduster" so you can enjoy that wisdom later on in life.

    I said "kill", by the way, because those threads will cause a wound that will be difficult to close quickly and the blood will not be able to clot to stop the bleeding. It's similar to why military knives have a serated edge on the back.

    ah internet shut-ins and their proclivity for making "self defense" weapons. does your mom know you've made this?
