What is Knuckle-up?


An action akin to the high-five or the handshake. The act of touching fists knukle-to-knuckle in greeting or departure. In 2003 this action was accompanied by the phrase "knuckle-up" but has since just become the motion without the phrase. The first instance of this action and phrase was in Dallas, TX in the mid-90's and has since become a common gesture in most public forms of transit in NYC.

Jimbo-- "Is that some kind of a gang sign?"

Miguel--"Nah, that's a knuckle-up, bro."
