Knucklebone - Acrylic Edition
Warning: The acrylic knucklebones tend to attract the interest of children, but they present a choking hazard, so keep them away from children under 10.
Knucklebones - Acrylic Edition
Our acrylic knucklebones are lightweight, and have a smooth, glossy finish that provides good grip during play. The combination of weight and grip makes them less prone to drops, and is also excellent for many advanced moves that involve manipulating the kbone from one of the ends.
Players accustomed to the momentum and gravity effect of the heavier metal versions may take some time to adjust to this style of play, but those interested in tricks and technical play will find this version extremely flexible and entertaining.
The acrylic knucklebones are quite striking visually. They present swirling colours, and many of them include some transparent and translucent portions, which make for beautiful pieces of playable art.
In terms of durability, the acrylic material is surprisingly robust. The acrylic kbones can generally withstand reasonable impacts (i.e., drops on hard surfaces), and are not prone to breaking or cracking. However, hard drops will likely scuff the surface, and drops on rough surfaces like sidewalks are likely to ding, scratch, or even chip the kbones.
In the pocket, the knucklebones are fairly scratch resistant. However, over time they are likely to pick up micro abrasions and can scratch if carried beside keys etc. They ship with a slim flannel pouch to help keep them protected when they are not being use.
- Material: acrylic
- Colours: varied
- Weight: each piece is unique, ranging in weight from around ~12.0g to ~12.7g
NOTE: Due to the nature of the material production, each of these items is unique, with slightly different appearance than others machined from the same rod stock. We plan to keep the acrylic line in inventory, but the individual colour patterns are unlikely to be repeated. While we're not calling them limited editions at this point, they are likely to be so in the de facto sense.
- The acrylic knucklebones tend to attract the interest of children, but they present a choking hazard, so keep them away from children under 10.
- While the acrylic material is quite durable, it can scratch and chip if dropped on hard surfaces, or kept in the pocket with keys or other the like
