What Is A Monkey Fist?

A **Monkey Fist** is a type of knot used to make a heaving line, an item used in maritime rescue throw bag operations. It is made by tying a small loop at the end of a rope and is filled with a weight which is commonly a sphere or rock or similar object.

Once tied it has a unique, spherical shape, which has earned it the nickname “Monkey Fist”.
