I recently came across these Single Finger Knucks (SFK) and Double Finger Knucks (DFK) that are made by Afrankart. At first, I was struck with how unique they look – they have a very distinctive style. However, it is also very apparent that these knuckles are very functional.
The knuckles were obviously made for striking. They are .625″ thick which is quite thick compared to many knuckles on the market. Thicker knuckles transmit impact over a larger area of your hand which means they hurt less and have less potential to injure the user. Great care has been taken to round all the edges to increase comfort and there appears to be plenty of material behind the finger hole to support the finger during a strike. The striking surface of these knucks is tapered so they concentrate the force of the strike.
The DFKs are available with 2 different striking surface configurations: pointed and rounded. The pointed version looks brutal. The SFK is available with the rounded striking surface only.
These can be made from several different materials and finishes. Aluminum and brass are available with a machine finish or bead blasted. G-10 is available as a more discreet, non-metallic option. Andy tells me that these will be available in Carbon Fiber soon.
The finger holes measure .950″ which should comfortably fit up to a size 13 ring finger. That should be large enough for most users.
If you are interested in purchasing a set of these reasonably priced knucks, contact Afrakart via email at email@example.com.
