K'nuckles creates tall tales about his prosthetic hands, when a man claiming to be the true owner of his right hand appears. He threatens K'nuckles and demands the return of his hand in 24 hours. Flapjack attempts to save the hand, having complete trust in K'nuckles' story, and finds out that his fellow adventurer isn't the honest sailor that he claims to be. Flapjack confronts K'nuckles about this, and his shouting about the latter's lies leads the citizens of Stormalong to take back what he apparently stole from them, literally tearing him apart and leaving only his eyes left in the end. However, it is soon revealed that K'nuckles was indeed telling the truth about his right hand; it was sold as a back-scratcher, and the man realizes that the "back-scratcher " is his real right hand, and willingly returns K'nuckles's hand. Unfortunately, thanks to Flapjack's big mouth, K'nuckles's body is now only composed of two eyeballs and a wooden right hand.
