Travelling and want to take your Monkey Knuckles with you? Here's a breakdown of which countries brass knuckles are legal in, and which countries they are not. Brass Knuckles are outlawed in many countries, for many reasons. They are easy to conceal, portable and can cause serious life altering damage if misused. That’s why we strongly encourage our customers to never misuse their Monkey Knuckles. Not only are Brass Knuckles illegal some countries and states have begun to ban plastic knuckles (such as Monkey Knuckles) as they are almost as lethal and even more inconspicuous as they can pass through metal detectors with ease. Not to toot our own horn but we were at the forefront leading the plastic knuckles movement with our world class durability and ergonomic design.
Let’s start with our very own home country, the greatest place in the world, the great white north, Canada. If you are new here, we’ll give you the short version, Brass Knuckles are legal in Canada, but only if they’re made of plastic materials such as Carbon Fiber and ABS. Which are what Monkey Knuckles are made of. If you want to read more on this, check out our “Are Brass Knuckles Legal in Canada” blog.
Now let’s get the countries that have banned brass knuckles out of the way, Australia (banned both metal and plastic knuckles), Austria (Home of the GLOCK), Belgium, Bosnia, Croatia, China, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Ireland, Malaysia, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia (This was a surprise), Spain, Turkey, Sweden, Singapore and the United Kingdoms.
Brass knuckles are legal in the following countries, Brazil, France (Strict no Carry Laws), Italy (Mafiosos made them very popular), Mexico, Sweden, Serbia and of course the U.S although some states ban both plastic and metal knuckles.
