Are brass knuckles illegal?

My brother has some and I don't want him breaking the law.

The law varies from state to state. The law also defines "brass knuckles" as they are made of different materials; some are legal while others are not, depending on the state statute.

In Canada they are illegal to both own and carry. In the States it's illegal to carry or use them, but as far as owning them concerns it's not illegal.

In most states they are illegal and illegal to transfer them to other people and to send them in the mail. Your best bet is to check with the state that you live in.

This may depend on what state you live in, but in most places they are illegal. They are considered to have no civil purpose.

Just owning them is not illegal. It is just like a sword or knife, anyone can own one. However if you use one in an illegal act say in a fight and someone is seriously hurt it can be used against you like you used a knife and stabbed a person.
