The phrase 'crumpled heap' comes to mind.

handy knurler

  [vote for,

This could be a small tool, about the size of a nasal hair trimmer, or an attachment to a multi-purpose tool such as a Dremel. It has a set of rotating diamond-tipped knurling wheels and its function is to add knurls to anything. Does your toothbrush feel insufficiently machine-tooled? Can you not get enough gription on your lunchtime burrito? Super-sleek new smartphone keeps slipping out of your hand? - just add some knurls.

It might be a bit bigger than a nose hair trimmer, but... [MechE, Sep 23 2015]


       Nice, but I think I’ll invent knurly tape, and disrupt the knurl economy.

       I'm sure embossed det-cord would do the job.

       Hand held and operated knurling rollers exist. See link for one example.

       You just know that the kids will start calling everything totally knurly.

       That had no feeling whatsoeveratall... and that link looks suspiciously like a pipe-cutter... and 'that' man's playing Galaga.
You thought I wouldn't notice...

       Except for the fact it has grooved wheels instead of a blade, it is a pipe cutter. It's got the same basic function, roll around a round surface and press into it really hard.

       I think it's a good job the knurler MechE links to has a knurled handle. Else you'd be snookered.
