    How do your "brass" knuckles your selling skirt the law?

    I was perusing your sight and I noticed these for sale.

    https://www.canadaammo.com/product/detail/tactical-g10-knuckle-olive-drab-green/

    https://www.canadaammo.com/product/detail/tactical-fist-g10-knuckle-black/

    The criminal code of Canada states that and Im quoting here "15 The device known as “Brass Knuckles” and any similar device consisting of a band of metal with one or more finger holes designed to fit over the fingers of the hand." is a prohibited weapon.

    So im curious as I dont see what technicality or loophole is being exploited as a work around.

    I believe this is the loop. There is no metal in them, made of G10

    Even if made of plastic I don't see a point in owning these.

    If you were to be searched by police (or police saw you with them) carrying these, they are clearly a weapon.

    And as per Canadian Criminal code, possessing or carrying a concealed weapon is illegal.

    But as for say a knife there may be a utility purpose behind carrying a knife, used for cutting various objects, or a rescue tool trapped by a seatbelt etc etc. Utility purposes allow you to carry a knife legally. Self defense is not one.

    But as for these there is no utility purpose. They can't be used as a tool in anyway, they are clearly for use a weapon.

    Enjoy your new criminal record if your caught with these.
