Handles

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

 

anatomique

anatomic (AN)

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

konkav

flared (FL)

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

droit

straight (ST)

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

porte-plume

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.
