5.0 out of 5 stars Monkeyfist alone is enough, 7 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The bracelet itself is actually too large for my wrists and luckily I can still wear it ahead of my watch or the extra beefy fire starter bracelet w/eye knife also by the friendly swede. I clip the monkeyfist onto the carabiner that comes with the pocket survival grenade (friendly swede also) whilst keeping the grenade itself in my pocket (attatched to the clip too, which is on my front-right belt loop due to my being right handed). If you ever need that monkeyfist off you can unclip it in under a second - trust me - if you clobber someone over the skull with that hefty piece of iron you'll at least fracture it. Plus it's discreet - it looks like a little keychain ball - so no one recognises that you could practically kill an attacker or at least vegetate them with it. Good for self defense around schools or whatnot.

Excellent choice for EDC. Das ist funf stern.

Hi Cain Shaw!

So glad to hear that you are enjoying the bracelet, as beefy as it is, and that you are happy to find the monkey fist useful in an emergency as well.

If you run into any issues at all or have any questions, I am happy to help. Here is a link to contact me directly:

Thanks again!

For those in the UK: If you carry something like the monkey fist for the specific reason of self-defence, then you are carrying an offensive weapon, the law is very clear on that. Otherwise we would all be walking around with an array of weaponry for self-defence.

You really need to be careful where you take this. If you carry one as part of a survival kit when trekking or an emergency hammer when camping etc, you will be fine, but if you are caught in a nightclub or pub with one, then you may end up on the wrong side of the law.

Of course, if you have one as a decorative key ring with no ulterior motive, then I can't see how that would be a problem.

That's a bit odd...of course I'm in the US. I don't take my gun into the pub but really only because I don't want any beer spilled on it. ;)

Yeah we have some pretty tight laws on weapons. Shotguns are pretty much the only firearm the public can own and that is with a licence issued by the police. It must be stored unloaded in a cabinet anchored to a solid wall with separate locked ammunition box and this can be inspected at any time. No knives in public unless the blade is less than 3 inches and it must be able to fold (not locking) although you can have a lock knife / hunting knife if you are camping or it is for your work and that you are working - not in aforementioned pub! Pepper gas etc. is classed as a firearm, Tasers etc. are all banned weapons. Pretty much anything carried as a weapon even for self defence is illegal. If you carry a monkey knot for the purpose of defending yourself, you are in trouble, but if you carry it to hold your keys and get attacked and then you smash their skull in - you are OK.....as long as the smashing of the skull was reasonable force!
It is not as bad as it sounds, the UK has a pretty low incidence of gun and knife crime. We are pretty safe.

You know in England if you commit a crime, the police don't have a gun and you don't have a gun. So if you commit a crime: "Stop! Or, or I'll say stop again!"
