In this paracord monkey fist tutorial you will find a tutorial on how to tie the knot, as well as a few tips on how to get this knot done properly. The monkey fist knot has quite a bit of history. The use of the knot, like many others was prominent in seamanship. The knot was often tied and thrown off a ship to be used to dock the ship. Due to the size and weight of the knot it could be thrown over impressive distances. What was not impressive for the person standing on shore was the force that this projectile generated. After some severe injuries and even deaths, the dockhands developed a severe hate for the knot.
One who pops out from the shadows and demands your wallet, or threatens your life. There are many self-defense tools for such a situation. Like a miniature flail, a monkey fist can come in many different sizes, shapes, and weights. Some fit on a keychain or in a purse; others are larger and harder to conceal.
This knot is used to tie the end of a climbing rope into a tight ball so the rope can be thrown. When a rope is coiled it is difficult to throw long distances because the coils of the rope catch the wind. With the monkey's fist knot tied to the end of a small coil, it can be thrown much further. This knot was first used by mariners to throw a tow line to another boar or to shore. The knot is about the size of a "fist" when tied.
