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