Modular Knucklebone (pre-release)

This is the much anticipated modular knucklebone. At this time it is available with a regular length titanium grip section, and your choice of either brass or copper ends (there is an option to purchase with both). We are calling this a “pre-release” because we don’t have all the options ready for it, and because we’re out of boxes (it will ship “double bagged” with two cloth bags). Ultimately, the modular kbones will be available with different lengths of grip sections, and with much more variety for the end knobs.

The modular setup has allowed us to create two extremely playable configurations of this toy. The sandblasted titanium grip section is smooth when rolling between the fingers, while the brass and copper end knobs put the weight towards the extremities where you want it, and provide some extra grip where you need it due to the tacky nature of those metals. The result is a beautiful setup that plays like a beast. The grip sections are all laser etched with the word "a r o u n d s q u a r e" around the equator. 

General Info on the Kbone

AO2's Knucklebone is the original hardbody knuckle roller. This is a simple skill toy that is manipulated with the fingers of one or both hands to perform tricks and patterns, or simply to pass the time.It is very discrete (unless dropped) and can be played in very restricted spaces, and in contexts where other showier skill toys may not be appropriate. There are tutorials already available online at the AO2 YouTube channel, and we’ll be publishing more in the coming weeks to help get folks started. 

The weight and hard material mean it will make a loud noise when it is dropped on hard surfaces, and has the potential to break things in its path. Be careful with it. The brass is relatively soft, and will still show scratches and dings on the drop portions (see photo with original prototype for reference).. it falls with weight, so it hits concrete hard. 

Note from the designer: I developed the original knucklebone circa 1989 when I was a kid in school. The crude original version was made from some kind of polymer clay (see photo). The new version is better suited to bigger hands, and has been designed for smoother flow and better trick potential.  

This is a pre-release version of the product.. The Knucklebone itself is the real deal, but the packaging/ extras will be a bit different in the final launch. 

Warnings: Metal versions are heavy and solid--can break things or hurt things if dropped. It is recommended that you play over carpet, couch, or the like, or outside. Delrin versions look almost tasty, so keep them away from young kids, and don't let anyone try to ingest them.
