Brass Knuckles iPhone Case: Tough Love for Your Smartphone


The Knucklecase for the Apple iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S cushions your smartphone from life's hard knocks while helping callers get a grip on any situation. Sure it's as subtle as a punch in the nose but if you don't like it... tough!

The design draws on that traditional force-multiplier employed by thugs and street toughs: brass knuckles. Simply add a rectangular space sized for your Apple iPhone 4 or 4S, pop in your shiny new phone, and hold on to your hat – the solid, secure grip provided by the Knucklecase gives users the confidence to multitask at their leisure.

One might, say, conduct a conversation with your Knucklecase-equipped iPhone on the one hand while conducting a brass knuckles enhanced interrogation with the other... unlikely perhaps but no longer impossible!

The Knucklecase is made in China from tough ABS plastic given a coat of metallic paint. Not as durable as actual brass knuckles but who punches somebody while gripping their iPhone in their fist? Nobody, that's who.

A couple of online stores (Vania and BmB) are featuring the Knucklecase on Rakuten priced at 1,980 yen or about $25 each, tax included. Makes a great gift and a great travel case though you may want to check with your friendly neighborhood TSA agent to make sure it's allowed on passenger planes.

(UPDATE: These are now available in the U.S., and you can buy various colors like silver, brass, gold and copper here for less than $10.)

Great New Cases!

I've heard of this new company starting up in November called Domeo products. They make these awesome iPad cases that are unlike any cases I have seen before. The website builds iPad cases that are great for home or office use. The case I am looking forward to the most is the one that raises up to your eye level. It would be so great for cooking in the kitchen or office use. Like I said, this company does not launch until November, but I would highly recommend checking them out! They are so awesome! Can't wait! Definitely check out domeoproducts.com.
