As part of my nephew's 16th birthday present I made him a couple of 16 face globe knots tied over a marble. He is looking forward to driving his family's car and can use one as a key ring fob and the other as a zipper pull or whatever.

Strictly speaking in "knotical" terms - a monkey fist is tied with interlocking circles. All the turns in each circle must be completed before going on to the next. The globe is more like a turk's head knot. A turk's head knot uses one continuous line throughout the knot with no interlocking circles.
The two knots are similar in appearance and have identical uses.
