Nathan Willey , Updated July 5, Everyone is familiar with brass knuckles, but history has given us a number of other fist weapons for the warrior who likes to do damage up close and personal instead of down the edge of a sword or the barrel of a gun. The pata was a weapon of Indian design first used by its ancient warrior caste, the Maratha, though it eventually spread throughout most of India. The pata extended up the wrist to cover the entire forearm, offering complete coverage for at least half of the limb. The blade, however, was attached directly to tip of the immobile shell and grasped with a bar grip. Since the pata was not made of separate pieces, this meant the Maratha warrior was unable to move his wrist , so all movement had to come from his elbow.
