    Abstract

    Threaded metal weapons may impart a characteristic abrasion of the skin with or without a laceration. When the head is struck, the threaded pattern may also be imprinted into the skull. Four cases of injury are described. Recognition of this pattern can be important in terms of the crime scene search for the suspect weapon.
