Knucklebone - Stainless Steel

40.00

Knucklebone 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 a handful of 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 stainless steel version is heavy, and carries a fair bit of momentum. The weight gives it a substantial feel, and the stainless steel feels relatively smooth to play. The weight and smoothness are variables and each material seems to be suited to different kinds of tricks. The stainless steel is laser etched with the word "a r o u n d s q u a r e" around the equator. 

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 stainless steel is very durable but will still show scratches and dings on the drop portions (see photo of brass version 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.
