A row of metal rings worn on the hand in order to increase the damage caused in hand-to-hand combat.
A simple yet effective weapon, dusters, also known as brass knuckles, vary widely in shape, though rarely in purpose. These connected metal rings, worn on all four of the fingers, greatly increase the impact of the knuckles during hand-to-hand combat. The use of dusters often leads to bone fracture, tissue disruption, and mutilation. Damage to the aggressor's fingers and hand is, furthermore, reduced. Soldiers who could not afford to purchase manufactured dusters often fashioned their own by melting lead bullets and pouring them into a dirt mold in the field.
