Don’t like my iPhone? You get a punch to the face

Knucklecase

This is by far the most intense and hardcore iPhone case we’ve ever seen. Yes, it even beats out that iPhone case with a pepper spray attachment we saw last month.

The Knucklecase is made of solid aluminum and fits an iPhone 4 or 4S, making sure your cellphone never gets a beating should you happen to drop it. However, if you’re looking to give someone else a beating, this case might just be made for you. The finger slots lets you comfortably hang on to your phone so it won’t slip out of your hands while you’re using it. Alternatively, you can also convert your phone into a punching machine. However, since the finger slots look pretty big and aren’t adjustably snug, we don’t think the Knucklecase will actually accomplish the task of beating someone up. Also, would you really risk smashing your iPhone on someone else instead of your actual fist and knuckles?

Yes, even those at the Knucklecase headquarters have noted that they don’t want to see iPhone users fight to the death with it. Under the Terms of Service before you’re allowed to purchase the case, the seller has clarified that the Knucklecase is for pure accessory protection purposes, and misuse of the product will forfeit the item’s warranty. They’re also not responsible should you hurt yourself or someone else with it.

So there, no actual butt-kicking is encouraged but if you want to at least look sort of tough, you can own the Knucklecase today for just $99. It’s also made in the United States, so quality is of the essence. If you order now, a special introductory sale is going on so you can receive free shipping worldwide.

If that’s still too expensive for you, check out Nukles, which also produces a brass knuckle concept iPhone case. Their cases come in a variety of silver, red, and gold colors, and are made to be scratch-resistant. While these retail for $154, an ongoing sale drops the price down to $77 with free economy shipping. Like the Knucklecase, sellers are not advertising people to go out and punch each other with their iPhone cases on; In fact, they’re thinking it’s more like a jeweled ring. Unlike the Knucklecase, the Nukles offers a shock-resistant back cover that slides in and out for maximum protection. If you don’t want the actual knuckles, Nukles also offers an all-aluminum case that looks a bit more traditional. Every Nukles purchase donates to the Make A Wish Foundation as well, so perhaps you can justify that amount of money for a good cause and unique phone protection.

By the way, if you are planning to purchase either the Knucklecase or the Nukles, head on over and check out this brass knuckle coffee mug to complete your tough guy accessories wall.
