  • 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.

flared

  • 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

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

pen-hold

  • 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.
