What are Semi-Custom Brass Knuckles?

Looking for something special?
Today, the US market offers an incredible variety of brass knuckles. The diversity in shapes, materials, colors, and finishing techniques is truly impressive. The EDC (Everyday Carry) industry is currently at its peak. As knuckle dusters gradually lose their original function, they are becoming more sophisticated and technologically advanced every day. However, despite the seemingly endless array of products, some customers fail finding what they are looking for, they are not always satisfied with the mass market and keep looking for something special. Most people want high-quality, unique designs, plus something special, and we are ready to exceed expectations.

Custom and Semi-Custom – what is the difference?
First, let's define what qualifies as a 100% custom item and what would be considered semi-custom.

A 100% custom item has the following attributes:
* Made to Order: It is specifically created based on a customer's request.
* Client Involvement: The client is actively involved in the production process, particularly during the design discussion stage, ensuring all their preferences and specifications are taken into account and implemented.
* Unique Requirements: The client sets unique and specific requirements that cannot be fulfilled using standard mass-market production equipment. As a result, these items are often handcrafted by a single artisan.
* One-of-a-Kind: The item is produced as a unique, single piece.
* Innovative Materials: The client may request innovative materials for the item's creation.
* Attention to Detail: There is maximum focus on fine details.
* Collectible Value: Such items have value for collectors because of craftsmanship.

A semi-custom item combines elements of both custom and mass production and offers a balance between personalized craftsmanship and industrial production.

A Semi-Custom or Mid-Tech item has the following attributes:
* Industrial Processes with Manual Finishing: While industrial equipment may be used in production, final precision operations, such as finishing and detailing, are completed by hand.
* Pre-set Personalization Options: Customers can personalize their item within a predetermined range of options, such as color schemes and finishing materials.
* Laser Engraving Options: Laser engraving is possible within predetermined limitations set by the manufacturer, such as the number of characters and placement.
* Manufacturer-Driven Design: The design process is typically led by the manufacturing company no input from the customer.
* Small Batch Production: Semi-custom items are usually produced in small batches, ranging from several dozen to around 100 units, allowing for slight variations between batches.
* Removable or Replaceable Parts: Some semi-custom items may feature removable or replaceable parts, providing a degree of flexibility and personalization for the customer.
* Mid-Range Collectible Value and Price: These items generally fall between fully custom-made pieces and mass market in terms of collectable value and price.
