Called this because the shape of the end is supposed to represent the shape of a monkey's fist. It's not really true of course but this is a valid nautical knot called a "monkey's fist" - ergo the name.

Our Monkey’s Fist Key Holder is a real handy man’s special - the heavy-duty galvanized steel shackle easily holds several key rings at once.

Sailor's Knot
Reviewed By:   (Huntsville, Arkansas) 
As a retired sailor, I know knots, and this is an authentic Monkey's Fist. In the Navy's early days, when ships were powered by the wind, it was used to weight the end of the messenger line sent over from one ship to another whenever a package was being sent between ships while underway. It continued to be used by our modern Navy up until a few decades ago. Of course, those were much larger; but the workmanship is the same. This one is well made. I highly recommend it to others who have an interest in naval history.

Satisfied

Cannot imagine tying monkeys fists for a living...my father did in WWII on Midway Isle. Not been able to figure out how he did it...so I bought several for dissection..and a lead sinker and you can zip tie up lines over great distances. Very handy in rough seas. So, its more than a key chain novelty....hopefully an answer to a lost skill. Ironically, most yachtsmen questioned have no idea what a monkeys fist is used for...one thought it was a mixed drink...one you cannot recover from once imbibed..god, is there no limit to depravity.

Quality Monkey-Fist
Reviewed By:   (Elkton , Oregon) 
The workmanship is evident. The knot is the "Monkey Fist", well tied with good cordage. The double line is wrapped in a very nice "Dragon's Tongue", and a "Turk's Head Knot" cinches it down so the shackle stays centered. Despite made in China, a very well made and quality key-chain fob.
