Knuckles are generally stronger than most weapons, but weaker than Bows. Like Bows, they are largely outclassed by one-handed weapons thanks to the Two-Handed and Dual Wield abilities. Occasionally, you can even get better attack by leaving your Monk unarmed (and doubly so if Natural Talent is equipped).
