Tricky business, this reading

Elizabeth [reading Alexander McCall Smith's "The Girl who Married a Lion"]: "What's a knob?"

I: "What's the context? What else does it say?"

E: "Soon the people were upon him, beating him with their knob".

I had a look. The word was "knobkerries", hyphenated at a line break. That, of course, made it much clearer.
