Historical Background

A bagh nakh (alt. Bag'hnak, Nahar-nuk, Waghnakh, Wagnuk, Wahar-nuk Hindi for "tiger claw") is an Indian hand-to-hand weapon designed to fit over the knuckles or concealed under and against the palm. It traditionally consists of four or five curved blades affixed to a crossbar or glove, and is designed to slash through skin and muscle, mimicking wounds inflicted by a wild animal. The bagh nakh is similar to Brass Knuckles or neko-te.

The weapon was developed in India, primarily for self-defense, though there are conflicting reports of the time period in which they appeared. The first well-known usage of the weapon was by the first Maratha Emperor Shivaji. He used a variation of the bagh nakh (the Bich'hwa bag'hnak) to kill Afzal Khan, a Bijapur Sardar.
