Kuʻekuʻe Lima Leiomanō were smaller variations of the [[Shark Tooth Club]] that could be used as Knuckle Dusters. Gladiators used [[Cestus]]: leather boxing gloves that could be fitted with spikes. Modern Brass Knuckles gained popularity during the crimewaves of early 1900s. Gangsters would use them as torture weapons or a slow and painful executioner's tool. Brass knuckles were designed to concentrate a punch's force to a smaller and harder contact area. Now they are illegal in such countries as Britain, Sweden, Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, and the USA (excluding Texas as of 2019). Some Brass Knuckles are spiked or have decorations, but most of these are rare and probably custom built. While most modern armies do not use brass knuckles, some trench knives in WWI had a brass knuckle grip to allow punches, but these weapons are sometimes considered illegal for use in warfare today. The Apache Revolver was a pistol that had a knife [[bayonet]] and a grip that could also be used as brass knuckles.
