Please read:

  • NOTE: Modular Knucklebone components are normally sold individually; however, the modular aluminum Kbone is currently being sold as a complete unit, with a middle grip and a pair of end knobs. They will ship with an assortment of cords for those wishing to use the knobs as begleri.

The Modular Knucklebone is Aroundsquare’s mix-and-match knuckle roller system. With assorted grip sections and end grips, players can build their own kbone setup based on their shape, size, and weight preferences.

The modular aluminum Knucklebones are, at this time, being sold as a complete setup, with a middle grip sporting a laser etched "aroundsquare" word mark, and a pair of end knobs equipped with a 3.5mm "goldilocks" bore for those wishing to string them up and use them as begleri. They will ship with an assortment of cords.

The sand blasted finish on the modular kbones is aesthetically beautiful, but more importantly, it plays incredibly well. The finish provides the right amount of grip, while still feeling smooth, with a low friction contact for rolling between the fingers.

Details

  • Finish: natural sand blasted
  • Weight: 26.1g total; knobs 9.7g each; grip 6.7g

General Info on the Kbone

AO2's Knucklebone is the original hardbody knuckle roller, and remains the tool of choice for the best players around the world. The 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. A growing range of tutorials are available online at the AO2 YouTube channel

Please note that 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. Some metals are relatively soft, and will still show scratches and dings on the drop portions.. it falls with weight, so it hits concrete hard. 

The original knucklebone was developed circa 1989, when Aroundsquare's founder was a kid in school. Tired of getting in trouble from teachers for standing up in class and playing with his yo-yo, he undertook to develop a more discrete toy to keep his hands busy and express creativity through tricks. The crude original version was made from polymer clay. The modern version is an updated and refined model, better suited to bigger hands, and optimized 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. Delrin versions look almost tasty, so keep them away from young kids, and don't let anyone try to ingest them.
