MokuTi Knucklebone

AO2's Knucklebone is the original hardbody knuckle roller, and as the community of players and collectors has grown, so has the demand for exotic materials. We’re very proud to now offer an incredible MokuTi model.

The material is forge from folded layers of different titanium grades, then machined, polished, and torched to create eye-popping colour patterns, reminiscent of wood grain. When machined to our specifications, the grains of the material become exposed in a way that accentuates the appearance of the curves, creating a beautiful topographic relief.

Each piece is quite unique, with its own grain patterns and slight colour differences. All pieces range from dark purple to blue to grey, and include lighter orange/ gold striping. The photos provided are all unedited, and shot with bright indoor lighting, to give a true depiction of what you’ll be getting. The six pieces depicted are quite representative of the range (the remaining ones are vacuum sealed to preserve the initial finish).

The MokuTi Knucklebones are only available polished at this time. The polished surface has more grip than sand blasted titanium, which helps with preventing drops with these precious pieces. The finish is reasonably durable in normal use, but will eventually show scratches and may fade through repeated contact with other pocket items etc. However, one of the beautiful aspects of this material is that it can be re-finished innumerable times, giving slightly different colours and contrasts each time.

This elegant Knucklebone may not be for everyone due to its price point, but for those who know what they're getting into, you're bound to cherish this piece. The weight is very similar to the regular titanium model - around 44.8g each. 

General Information

AO2’s 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 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 material is relatively soft, and will still show scratches and dings on the drop portions.. It falls with weight, so it hits things 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.  

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. Some versions look almost tasty, so keep them away from young kids, and don't let anyone try to ingest them.
