I know the material off the back of my hand

A daughter was telling her father about a recent test.  This is a mashup of “know it like the back of my hand” (extremely familiar with something) and “off the top of my head” (from memory without careful consideration).  Either this is a malaphor or maybe she actually had the materials written on her hand?  A big thanks to John Kooser for hearing this one.
