Even though the name implies that this instrument was only used for "splitting" knees, it was also used in other body parts including: the elbows, arms and even the lower legs. As the torturer turned the handle, the claws slowly slammed against each other mutilating any skin in between. The number of spikes the knee splitter contained varied

Knee-Splitter. This was a medieval torture device that would literally split victims knees rendering them useless. One of the spiked wooden blocks would be placed on top of the knee, the other behind. The screws would be turned causing the blocks to close together. Gruesome!
Knee-Splitter: A popular torture device during the Inquisition, the knee splitter does what it says: split victims’ knees and render them useless. Built from two spiked wood blocks, the knee splitter is placed on top of and behind the knee of its victims. Two large screws connecting the blocks are then turned, causing the two blocks to close towards each other and effectively destroy a victim’s knee. This device could also be used to inflict damage on other parts of the body such as the arms

Torture of Cathar Huguenots in France after the revocation of the Catholic church Edict of Nantes, 1685.
The Edict of Fontainebleau is compared by many historians with the 1492 Alhambra Decree, ordering the Expulsion of the Jews from Spain; and with Expulsion of the Moriscos during 1609-1614. The three are similar both as outbursts of religious intolerance ending periods of relative tolerance, and in their social and economic effects. In practice, the revocation caused France to suffer a kind of early brain drain,

Torture device-- confession chair
Medieval Torture Device used by the Catholic church during the genocide of Christian Cathars and the Templars
The Chair of Torture dates back to the Middle Ages but may have been used till the late 19th Century. Not quite Russian Revolution territory, then, though fear of those myriad spikes might have kept a few of the masses in line. This ultimate interrogation chair had spikes covering the seat, back, and arm-, leg- and footrests – but there was no rest, for the wicked or anyone else who sat in this thing.
Not really a weapon, but I figured instruments of torture could go on this board too...
A convict on the ladder-like contraption. Their shins would have been digging into the edge of the cross board every time they allowed their body to relax. And they wouldn’t have been able to sit or stand but would’ve been forced to stay in that uncomfortable, hunched position for as long as the punishment dictated.

SPANISH DONKEY. One of the torture devices during the Spanish Inquisition, this is probably one of the most gruesome of them all. The victim is put astride, naked, on a donkey-like apparatus, which is actually a vertical wooden board with a sharp V-wedge on top of it. After that, the torturer would add varying weights to the victimâ€™s feet until finally the wedge sliced through the victimâ€™s body.
Dark and creepy things fascinate me.

The "Iron Maiden," in an image from Nuremberg c. 1500. This was an instrument of torture which was lined with spikes that would pierce the unfortunate wearer when the doors were closed.
1500, Middle Age
Iron Maiden: A torture device, consisting of an iron cabinet, with a hinged front, sufficiently tall to enclose a human being. The Iron Maiden is often associated with the Middle Ages, but in fact was not invented until the 19th century. No account of the iron maiden has been found earlier than 1793, although medieval torture devices were elaborately catalogued with horrified fascination and reproduced during the 19th century for collectors of the macabre. - Wikipedia

The Coffin Torture. Torture devices were very common in Roman Catholic Church Dungeons. Anyone not following the dogma of the church were tortured or destroyed. Anyone caught with a bible trying to show that the church was wrong were destroyed.
The Coffin Torture The victim was placed inside a metal cage roughly made in the shape of the human body. Torturers could force overweight victims into a smaller device, or even make the "coffin" slightly larger than a victim’s body to make him more uncomfortable. The cage was frequently hung from a tree or a gallows. Serious crimes, such as heresy or blasphemy, were punished by death inside the coffin where the victim was placed under the sun allowing birds or animals to eat his or her flesh.

The iron “box” on the inside of the ring is forced into the victim’s mouth and the collar fastened behind their neck. A small hole allows the passage of air but this can be stopped up by a touch of the executioner’s fingertip, producing suffocation."
