    Apr 28, 2011, 4:14 PM - New Constantine Brass Knuckles Available #1

    Don't know how many people know, but a company has started offering the Constantine Brass Knuckles. I guess they're steel but made to look gold, plated maybe?

    The guy that answers their calls seems to be a little awkward in conversation, and simply said they'd cost to much to produce in actual brass, lol.

    Anyway, I missed out on the real deal here but am glad someone is finally offering something.

    Here's a link:

    Probably not a good idea to advertise that you purchased them in a State where possession is illegal, and could result in a stay behind bars...

    From what I have read in my State it is legal to own but not carry. I'll just make a simple phone call to find out for sure before ordering

    actually they can be owned in most states as long as they are a PAPER WEIGHT....If you catch my drift..but most states you can't carry..UNLESS like where I live you have a carry conceal permit..then it's a different story...weird laws. Just a thought.

    Eaglewood made the first wave and then Jmtwo made the resin versions.
    Jmtwo might still make them but I know Eaglewood isn't making them anymore.

    I found some pics of the original run on their server so I know they took the idealized design from me.

    I contacted them and I'll find out what the deal is.

    They took images of my design and redrew it themselves apparently. I found 2 images on their server that had the knuckles me and Eaglewood made.

    I made an idealized version of the scroll work and it's different from the screen used ones. Theirs are exactly like mine.

    I've been aware of the site for awhile because I've been wanting a set. They have been advertising they were coming soon for quite some time. It appears that they took the other pictures down since last night, of what I would guess was FB's knuckles? The pictures they took down had better, more clear and complete inscriptions than the ones they are offering now. More than likely took them down to avoid buyer confusion but if you contacted them, then maybe to get rid of the evidence trail.

    Even though my version were resin, I don't touch these anymore. Don't need no trouble from "The Man".

    Not from what I've heard. I thought maybe one of those things that's legal to own but not carry with you or use.

    Violators can end up in prison.
    California penal code 12020 (a) states that it is illegal to own, carry, or manufacture brass knuckles. It is also illegal to import, sell, keep for sale, lend or give brass knuckles to another person within California. Those found in violation of penal code 12020 (a) are subject to no more than one year in county jail. Those who are caught selling brass knuckles can face up to three years in California state prison.

    Plastic Knuckles

    California law states that hard plastic knuckles, also known as composite knuckles, are subject to the same laws as traditional brass knuckles. This bill was signed into California law by Governor Gray Davis in 2002. Hard plastic knuckles are defined as any instrument or device constructed entirely, or partially, of plastic instead of metal for the purpose of defense or offense. California penal code 12020.1 states that it's a misdemeanor to manufacture, import or sell plastic knuckles.

    To help clear up some of the legality issue..there is no federal law in the United States making knuckles illegal to own. Instead it is decided on by each state. If they are allowed by your state however that does not mean they are legal to carry, to carry them in states where they are legal you often need a concealed weapon permit.

    From what I can tell these states they are illegal to own -Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont and Washington.

    Also several states including California, New York, Illinois, Michigan, Rhode Island & Vermont it is illegal to even own plastic knuckles or knuckles out of any hardend material.

    Of course check out your own state laws before you do anything, as laws change and my list is in no way official.

    In some states such as South Carolina make possession of brass knuckles illegal only if "they are used with the intent to commit a crime."

    They are also illegal in the UK, Canada, Australia, Sweden, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Russia, and the Netherlands.

    They are legal in France

    This is a scary thread with a bunch of serious legal talk.

    Anyway, interested to see what shakes out.

    Yeah, didn't want to stir up controversy. Just thought it was interesting they were finally released again. Since I'm sure lots of members on here live in the states where it is legal, I'm sure they'll want a pair.

    If only someone would make the Holy Shotgun! lol
