    I made one of these back in middle school when we took a field trip to NYC and I bought a fake rolex off the street. the band was easy enough to take apart, so I just made a little ring out of it.

    it was rather uncomfortable

    Quick tip for makers:
    Knuckle Hair may be quickly and painlessly removed by lightly passing the flame of a propane(or butane) torch over your hands.

    This will be rebranded as a device to remove unsightly knuckle hair in 9 months.

    I like it. Looks like it’s smooth and rounded on both sides, so it probably shouldn’t pinch like a real watch band. Nice, clean design.

    Most painful comments ever!

    I clicked the link and got a Sauna Stool.

    My knuckle hair is beautiful, like silk. Removing it would be a crime against humanity.

    A guy company, Suemi Designs, makes some rings with the same idea. No idea who was first, probably some third party.

    I own a couple of the rings. I’m not as Kong-like as some, but I do have knuckle hair, and it has never been caught either of the rings.

    Before I could make a conscious thought, I involuntarily cringed when I saw it, knowing it would yank out your knuckle hair.
    Still looks cool enough to make my consider it (hmmm)
