    Picked this up at a flea market with a bunch of other WWII German items. All other items were identified and sold, but I still have this left. I could find nothing on German brass knuckles. Can anyone give me info on these?

      Looks like a fantasy item to me. Are you going to poste the other items? Welcome to CW.
    2. Rayn Rayn, 7 years ago
      Unfortunately, I lost pics to the other items that were sold. I still own this piece, so I was able to take and post pictures of it.

      I agree with Blunder. To begin with this item isn't brass. It shows signs all the way around of being made in a mold and looks like it is poured lead that wasn't even trimmed or finished. I would sooner think it is a novelty item.

      I appreciate the info. I knew they weren't brass. These looked to sloppy to be made by Germans, but I could've been wrong. This probably is modern just like many of you stated. There are no markings anywhere to indicate the maker unfortunately.
    5. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 7 years ago
      What, no "RZM"! Another thing is that they aren't even practical as all that sharp merde sticking out would snag on clothes as you tried to get them out smoothly. As a kid, I made some "knucks" using lead with antimony & tin alloy and they were just about as hard as brass & didn't bend.

      The odd thing is, it came with a bunch of legimate WWII German items. A lot of Luger clips and other Luger gun parts. Also, a few buttons and knives. Unfortunately, I don't have any of that anymore.

      What they came with is like saying my LCD TV came out of a house that is 100 years old. Each item stands on its own merit. People seem to think the age of a relative, the age of a house etc. makes a difference.....it doesn't. Great grandma can buy modern items or have old items. Each item speaks for itself.

      I've had fakes find their way into my collection before but seldom now. With experience, comes knowledge. Even after my many, many years of collecting, I may have gotten stuck on an SS ring that most opinions say fantasy but I remember seeing one at a gun show in the early '50's before anybody was faking because the originals were everywhere & cheap. So, I put it on, stuck it in my pocket and withdrew my hand. It caught on the cloth so that told me it wasn't practical for a soldier. Sometimes approaching things from the practical angle tells the story. Never assume & always doubt. A pessimist is an optimist with experience. Look on the bright side as you can grind off the merde & have a good set of knucks!

      I have the exact same nazi knuckles. I acquired them in 93 from some kid whose grandpa truck driver found in a cali parking lot in the 1980s, did u ever find out more info on these ?
    10. zguy2112 zguy2112, 7 years ago
      I have a large collection of Brass knuckles, never seen a pair like these. However I do agree with the earlier comment as they appear to be TOO SLOPPY to be the work of germans. And if there were authentic, I doubt they would put the SS mark on them as large as it is. Still cool knuckles, but most likely a fantasy gag.

      Can't anyone understand that these are just fantasy BS? Probably sold in "head shops" in the 80's thru 90's. I have a bridge for sale if any of you are interested? I can have SS runes & even "RZM" put on it for you. Certificates guaranteeing it to be the Arnhem bridge cost a bit more (A dollar,two, ninety-eight). Interested parties can contact me thru my Cayman web site. "We cheat the other guy & pass the savings on to you".

      i also have a pair of these i picked up at a garage sale as a teen in the 80,s i also bought some other german weapons I've never seen another pair till i stumbled onto this site today thought they were a little sloppy too but they've been used for purpose intended for an the other items were authentic so i thought they may be too?
