Monkey Fist knots were originally tied around a weighted object and used as the end of a heaving line on sailing ships. The weighted knot would allow the sailors to send a messanger line from ship to ship or ship to shore attached to a heavier mooring or dock line.
Our New England Classic Monkey Fist is a weighty beauty cast in brass and dipped in 14 kt gold . It sparkles on a diamond cut rope chain. Available with a 16" or 18" chain. Made in New England. Timeless nautical chic!
