Benefit — Brass knuckles allow you to deal lethal damage
Drawback — You may hold, but not wield, a weapon or other object in a hand wearing brass knuckles. You may cast a spell with a somatic component while wearing brass knuckles if you make a concentration check (DC 10 + the level of the spell you're casting).

Monk — A monk weapon can be used by a monk to perform a flurry of blows.
