Knucklehead is a term in twistypuzzles coined by Bram Cohen to describe the particular mechanism of the first functional Pentultimate (by Jason Smith). It is a term used not with scorn, but great affection and wonder at the persistence and insanity to go where others would never tread for sound and sensible reasons.

Knucklehead mech

A mechanism others had roundly discarded as completely impractical, created only with great time, expense and effort.
