The monkey s fist knot is most often used as the weight in a heaving line. The line would have the monkey s fist on one end, an eye splice or bowline on the other, with about 30 feet (~10 meters) of line between. A lightweight feeder line would be tied to the bowline, then the weighted monkeys fist could be hurled between ship and dock. The other end of the lightweight line would be attached to a heaver-weight line, allowing it to be drawn to the target easily. The knot is usually tied around a small weight, such as a stone, marble, tight fold of paper, or a piece of wood. A thicker line will require a larger object in the center to hold the shape of the knot. Another variation of the monkeys fist knot omits the use of an internal object as a weight and rather uses the spare end which gets tucked back into the knot. This results in a nicer looking knot of a lesser weight, minimizing the potential danger of hurting someone with the knot when hauling line. Monkeys fists were also commonly used as melee weapons by sailors embroiled in street and tavern fights during the 19th century and the use of the monkeys fist as a slingshot became common in the street gang subcultures of the 19th century. Similarly, when learning or practicing in the use of a Chinese meteor hammer, each end of the practice weapon is often tied off with a monkeys fist knot.
