Nautical knobs. Dress Up Your Cabinets and Furnishings With Skipjack's Monkey's Fist Knob

Skipjack's hand-tied rope monkey's fist nautical drawer pull or knob is a perfect way to dress up your yacht or nautical home. Perfect as a choice to dress up your kitchen cabinets and drawers, bathroom fixtures, and as chest of drawer pulls and box knobs. A monkey's fist or monkey paw is a type of knot, so named because it looks somewhat like a small bunched fist/paw. It is tied at the end of a rope to serve as a weight, making it easier to throw, but also as an ornamental knot.

Use them as a towel hanger or anywhere that you can use a nautical designed decorative knob. These pulls measures 1 3/8 inch in diameter and are available with your choice of a one inch screw for cabinets or two inch screw for furniture and other thick surfaces. The monkey's fist rope knobs can also be painted so you can custom color them for your nautical interior.

Our monkey's fist knobs are hand-made by fancy knotwork artist Joe McNelis  right here in Olde Towne Portsmouth, Virginia ...not in China! Joe McNelis also creates turk's head design nautical rope wine bottle stoppers and lamp finials as well as exceptional bell lanyards and other great coastal living products. Links to his products are listed below.
