Abstract

During sudden altercations, the more easily available and accessible weapons are frequently used to assault; head and face being the vulnerable parts in such fatal attacks. These incidents are mostly unplanned, and occur in a fit of rage, alcohol often being a contributory factor. The present case series highlights the unique facial injuries caused following arguments during alcohol consumption, and using easily accessible weapons in the surrounding. Gorkha Khukuri knife used as a weapon of offence in the first case is a utility knife used by Nepalese population. Fish hook used as a weapon of offence in the second case in fact is a very uncommonly used weapon in cases of assaults.
