Knucklebone - Acrylic

20.00 25.00

Warning: The acrylic “Ice Bones” tend to attract the interest of children, but they present a choking hazard, so keep them away from children under 10.

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. Check out the AO2 YouTube channel for demonstrations and tutorials in our "knucklebone" playlist.

About the Acrylic “Ice” Knucklebones

The clear acrylic “Ice Bones” 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 Ice Bones are quite striking visually. They are fully transparent, and refract light in very interesting ways due to their curvatures, allowing for some stunning photography possibilities. The coloured versions are dyed with excellent colour saturation.

In terms of durability, the Ice Bones are surprisingly robust. They 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 Ice Bones are fairly scratch resistant. However, over time they are likely to pick up micro abrasions that will eventually reduce their transparency. They ship with a slim micro-fibre pouch to help keep them protected when they are not being use.

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.
