Monkey Fist Weapon

The Monkey fist began to be used as a hand-to-hand weapon, when the sailors were on shore. Also called a slungshot they were commonly used as melee weapons by sailors embroiled in street and tavern fights. The use of the monkey’s fist as a slungshot became common in the street gang subcultures of the 19th century.

A monkey fist is a type of knot that is tied at the end of a rope so that it becomes a little heavy I order to act as a weight or anchor of some sort. It’s also called a monkey’s paw and got such a name because it looks like a person’s fist. So now you know why it’s called monkey’s fist. It doesn’t have much to do with monkeys after all.

A monkey fist is a knot used by sailors to weight the ends of line in order to throw the line. As sailors were wont to do in centuries past (and perhaps even now), it didn’t take long for them to figure out that these weighted lines had potential for delivering force. A slungshot gets its power from the speed with which the weight can be whipped into the target, even at extremely short distances (such as, say, the distance from your hand to an attacker’s head).

A monkey fist basically is a steel ball wrapped in thick heavy duty paracord. The front end of the monkey fist (the ball) is called a monkey fist knot. It’s a specific tying procedure that securely holds the steel ball in and creates a fist.

A Monkey Fist knot is so named because it looks like a small bunched fist or paw. The monkey fist knot originally began as a frequently used Merchant Marine term. Sailors of the 1800’s began using monkey fists (a knot tide around a small weight) as a method to grab ropes from boat to boat, person to person. The weight on the line made the passing of lines from a ship to shore or from one ship to another ship easier and faster.

The monkey fist knot made of paracord is very popular due to its easy availability and great strength. It’s not used by sailors like the old days, but it is put to a number of good uses nowadays.

The monkey fist knot attached at the end of a paracord ingeniously employs basic principles in physics to obtain the most force and deliver a strong throw. Since force is the result of multiplying mass and acceleration, and since the steel or marble ball isn’t that heavy, you need to throw the ball very strongly, so that you can give the ball enough speed and accelerate it as fast as possible.

The monkey fist is well made but I think its too small for any kind of self defense. The ball bearing at the end is roughly the size of a gumball or jawbreaker so imagine swinging that on a 6 inch piece of rope and that’s what you have with this product. I think using your fists would be more effective at defense than swinging this small thing around. this would be effective enough to annoy someone so they would leave you alone.

Used as a Public Safety tool, looks like a small bunched fist. Tied at the end of the string, inside the knot, is a metal ball making it easy to throw. These things can crack glass, metal, skulls or whatever you can throw it at.

Don’t let its innocent look fool you; this Monkey Fist Weapon is always sold-out because people are arming themselves with the newest addition to the Public Safety family.

The paracord is designed to be extended or shortened for your own desired length, so each Monkey Fist is customizable. And it also doubles as a survival rope in case you find yourself in need of strong and durable string.
