HI! Thanks for visiting my web site.
I create custom pool cues that are "one of a kind" ---Just for you!
I started creating pool cues years ago because I couldn't find exactly what I wanted in a manufactured cue. After that everyone started asking if I could make this or that and I have created pool cues inlaid with an actual four leaf clover, a sharks tooth, a unicorn, an eagle cameo, and whatever a customer wanted including a picture of a guy's girlfreind.
Why call it "KnobbyCue"?
Joe Palooka was an American comic strip about a heavyweight boxing champion, created by cartoonist Ham Fisher. With various assistants and successors, the strip lasted for over half of a century with spin-offs to radio, movies, television and merchandising.
In his home town of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Fisher devised the character in 1921 when he met a boxer outside a poolroom. As Fisher explained in an article in Collier's
“ Here, made to order, was the comic strip character I had been looking for -- a big, good-natured prize fighter who didn't like to fight; a defender of little guys; a gentle knight. I ran back to the office, drew a set of strips and rushed to the newspaper syndicates.
The Joe Palooka comic strip was born and lasted 54 years.
Joe Palooka had a scrappy little manager named Knobby Walsh.
My Dad's (as my daughter puts it "Anybody can be a Father but it takes somebody special to be a Dad!") friends thought he looked like Joe Palooka's
manager so his nickname became "Knobby".
..........so I named my pool cues for "somebody special".
The most important thing about a "KnobbyCue" is the playability. I use the best domestic and imported exotic wood I can find. My pool cues are all natural, - no decals. Everything inlaid into a "KnobbyCue" is just that....inlaid! You can choose from many woods and material including legal Ivory,Mother of Pearl,Ebony,Abalone and much more. While my primary purpose is to create a cue that is all your's, it must be the best cue you have ever hit!
The balance, the feel, and the hit must be you.....an extension of your body and mind ..........and if you're confident in your custom cue......it will WIN!
So, if you have always had that special Pool Cue in mind, maybe there's a "KnobbyCue"and alot of WINS in your future? Please contact me. I would really like to hear from you.
Thanks for visiting.
They all make' em pretty........Knobby makes'em WIN!
