Gonna try this. I really gotta LOL at the "it's not legal" group. Go hide in a corner next time a kid munches his pop-tart into the shape of a pistol.

I don't believe that you originally created this. How can you have any copyright thing with it. (its not that I dont believe its that Ive seen it before, you could of been the original creator.)

I really like this design - simple and effective. I've made it my Thing of the Week on http://3Dgeni.us3Dgeni.us so do check it out:


Thanks for sharing it!

I did some 'research' to scale the ultimate for different can sizes.
To print a 24oz tallboy can scale by: height x 1.585, width x 1.106
Fosters oil can: height x 1.285, width x 1.273
32oz highlife can: height x 1.585, width x 1.273

I know this comment is many years old, but thank you. I plan to print the 24oz version for my sister in law for whom this will be perfect!

Make sure to read up on your laws before you print one of these. In many states it is a crime to own any type of brass knuckle. Even those made of plastic, or composite. Including California, New York and Texas.
For example...
Texas does not differentiate with regards to composition materials, making the possession of "knuckles" a Class A Misd. (See. Texas Penal Code § 46.05. PROHIBITED WEAPONS) Specifically, Texas makes it an offense to intentionally or knowingly possess, manufacture, transport, repair, or sell and prohibited weapons (including knuckles).

But this is not a Brass Knuckle it is a beverage handle made to resemble a brass knuckle, nothing in the TPC says likeness only the actual item. And I know this is an old post just found it and had to point out the difference.

hahahah great idea!
i will try this, thank you. =]

Resized for 32oz cans is way sweet!

what are the exact dimensions of this? my printer requires that otherwise itll change the size

Awesome man, glad you like it, I tried to design it in such a way that it would fit many cans (most have some small variations) and it seems to be serving Thingiverse just fine.

Turning your beer can into a beer stein with the ultimate is the ultimate way to class up some rolling rock. Just trying the brass knuckle out now, but the ultimate prints great.
