Are Brass Knuckles legal to own in Thailand?

That sounds bad.  Yes, I know those things go on.  We do not as a rule drive out at night, bar to go to a local restaurant and usually that is as a family, not alone.  Our local cops are reasonable and so long as they are not the ones doing the drug deals (not unknown) , not too bad at keeping things quiet.  The local youths can be a bit rowdy after a few drinks, but that is just youthful energy rather than a threat.  I never really feel threatened anywhere here, bar perhaps some parts of Bangkok after midnight. 

I lived in BKK for 10 years and actually never felt threatened there. Noticed a big difference moving to Khon Kaen.

Not the same, a pen, pencil, ruler, coin as you quote have legitimate uses other than as weapons, a set of brass knuckles does not - a weapon, nothing else, no grey area!

Just use two rolls of 10 Bt coins.

You can buy lots of stuff in Thailand that will get you arrested 50 meters down the road if you're caught carrying them.   Brass knuckles are one of them.  Pepper spray is another.  Same wit

At 11 years old I was arrested for throwing a snowball from a moving vehicle into the windshield of another vehicle moving in the opposite direction. The windshield shattered and wicked chaos broke loose from there. I was charged with Assault With A Deadly Weapon. Perhaps the OP, and others here wanting protection, could carry a few snowballs in their pockets. However, beware, the worst part is having to call your dad and tell him to come pick you up from jail.

That's why I carry a torch around with me. Always have done. It as come in very handy when the lights go out here  and once in the shopping mall here.  It can be used to temporay blind someone because it as a high intensity strobe and steady light of 1800 lumen. In the dark an 80 lumen is sufficient to temporary blind someone and over 200 lumen during the day. So would give you a little time to get away and also attract attention from passers by. You wont cause permanent inury to anyone. If stopped by Police its just a torch.

 

If you look a little harder, you can buy a torch that doubles as a stun baton.  I had one, but never really used it except as a flashlight.  It did put out an impressive sound when I pushed the 2nd button and the sparks flew.  Really impressive in the dark.  I bought mine in BKK Chinatown.  Mostly out of curiosity- I was amazed at what I could buy right out in the open.

I have the Nitecore P20i. The below txt taken from their website. Cost around 2200thb. Comes with quick release holster.

The NITECORE P20i is the ultimate high performance tactical flashlight, emitting up to 1800 lumens with a max throw of 375 yards. Designed for law enforcement and military situations, this torch comes equipped with a non linear strobe and an ultra strong strike bezel. Non-linear strobe patterns cause enhanced dizzying effects, highly effective for diffusing a tense situation.

Whilst I cannot quote a law, I believe they are classed as an offensive weapon and like many things inThailand it would depend entirely on the Officer stood in front of you at the time as to what may follow. Personally, if you want them, dont carry it or let it be seen being worn in a public place would be my advice.

been carrying mine for over 15 years. I don't flaunt them and never had to use them though if needed wouldn't hesitate a moment. Once went to meet a friend flying into Krabi airport and had to pass through security to meet them in the terminal. Forgot I had them and of course the alarm went off. They took them and returned them when I exited though i believe if they wanted to they could of caused me trouble for sure.
