Dad-of-one Grey, 40, claimed the weapon was being used as a prop for his tattoo artworks – and said it was made using a 3D printer.

Grey, of Brecon, Mid Wales, admitted possession of an offensive weapon and possessing cannabis.

He was handed a three month suspended sentence at Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court.

He was also ordered to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work and to pay costs of £250.

Alex Scott of the Crown Prosecution Service said: ‘This was an unusual case. Adrian Grey claimed this 3D printed knuckle duster was just a toy because it was plastic.

‘The CPS presented evidence to the court, including the weapon itself, and showed it could cause serious harm if used maliciously.

‘This conviction demonstrates offensive weapons now come in many forms.’
