MoKnuckles - Delrin
MoKnuckles - Delrin
MoKnuckle is the single ball variant of our Monkey Knuckles skill toy. It’s amazing how much flow can be generated with just one ball on a string, and this setup, with delrin balls on soft 550 paracord, is ready to take that flow to the next level. The MoKnuckle features slightly larger balls than the delrin Monkey Knuckles, and are designed to give the player just a little bit of extra momentum to maximize the one-ball flow. The end grips are also slightly larger as well, giving the toy just the right balance when performing release moves, and carrying a little extra momentum to sustain motion once they are released.
Just like the two-balled Monkey Knuckles, these guys give professional grade performance. They ship with soft 550 paracord, which handles like a dream. The knuckles and end grips are machined from high quality POM/ delrin material, which will hold up to any abuse you give them. This is a versatile skill toy, designed give many years of solid play. The MoKnuckles come with two additional strings, a carry bag, an info card, and a couple of stickers (no box).
While our “Monkey Knuckles” are a patented Aroundsquare original design, we don’t claim the same design credits for MoKnuckle. The basic idea of a ball on a string has likely been played by many generations throughout history, in one form or another. In recent history, many players of Astrojax incorporated single-ball tricks into their AJ flow, while 5A yo-yoers pioneered tricks that involve whipping counterweights around while the yo-yo itself is manipulated between strings. More recently, Orbit-style flow toys have fostered the development of a wide range of tricks and patterns that borrow from poi and other flow arts. While our MoKnuckles emerged independently, as an outgrowth of single ball “uno” style Monkey Knuckles play, it’s important to recognize there are other great skill toys out there that also have their own inter-related stories.
As with Monkey Knuckles, players coming at the MoKnuckle from different skill toy backgrounds will see different potentialities in the toy, and will be able to incorporate familiar tricks and movements into their play. Call it a dead end yo-yo. Call it a kendama without a ken. Play it however you want.. that’s half the beauty of such a simple toy.
