The different handles

You can choose one out of five different blade handles: anatomic (AN), flared (FL), straight (ST), Japanese pen-hold, Chinese pen-hold

Anatomic grip Flared grip

The anatomic grip is shaped to fit perfectly in one’s palm. Recommended for larger hands it seems relatively thick and allows a firm grip.


With the shape of a swallow’s tail, the flared grip prevents the blade from slipping. It lies firmly in one’s palm, yet it is relatively flexible.

Straight handle Pen-hold handle style

The straight handle supports every blade grip with emphasis on an active use of the wrist.


Pen-hold style grips are suited best for the sole use of one side of the blade. Their focus lies mainly on a wide variation of different wrist techniques.
