Brass Knuckle
Grasshopper Dust Goggle/Spectacle
Brass Knuckle

The Brass Knuckle Grasshopper (BKDST-1010N) dust goggle/spectacle offers workday versatility and never sacrifices forget-you-have-it-on comfort. A soft, comfortable EVA foam dust filter with built-in air channels fills the gap between glasses and the face, keeping dust out. The filter also easily removes, transforming Grasshopper into standard protective eyewear.

Lenses are durable polycarbonate, meet or exceed ANSI/ISEA Z87.1-2020, and are manufactured with Brass Knuckle’s industry-leading N-Fog anti-fog coating. N-FOG performance testing shows its anti-fog capability exceeds the world’s most stringent anti-fog standard—European EN 166/168—lasting 15 times longer.

This high degree of fog protection makes Grasshopper perfect for jobs requiring workers to migrate between widely varying temperature extremes that make fogging eyewear a true occupational hazard. The sporty European design features a stylish, wraparound lens for an unobstructed field of vision. Bend-but-don’t-break flexible thermoplastic rubber (TPR) grass-green temples provide hypoallergenic, non-slip comfort, adapting to any facial profile without distorting optics. Grasshopper is also fully dielectric (no metal anywhere) for an extra measure of safety.
