Like a pen, or in the palm of your hand with your fingers around it?
Surely the knife is the same under rotations around its axis?
Depends on what sort of knife and what I am trying to do with it.
Nope - pretty much same hold whatever the knife.
It really depends upon who I happen to be thinking about at the time. I have been known to develop a strong stabbing action when I think of politicians..
*matron is calling. Must go and take my medications*
Craft knives I hold like a pen.
Marking knives I hold in a grip but with my index finger on the back of the blade.
Table knives I hold with all my fingers and thumb wrapped around the handle.
Fruit knives I hold with just my fingers wrapped around the handle but with the edge towards me for pealing, my thumb then rests on the fruit.
The knives off my surface planer I hold from the back edge only and very carefully indeed.
In case anyone says anything I am usually also found eating when I am using non food knives.
how can yo upossibly cut things with it if you hold it like a pen. I'ts not an ornament it does actually have a purpose, hence the blade.
Have you used a scalpel?
and what do you mean LIKE a screwdriver? Some of the knives in my drawer that i eat with actually ARE screwdrivers.
don't like them they snap too easily. Stanley knives are better.
But not as delicate.
See!! There really is a parallel world where things are only slightly different.
Hand around the handle and forefinger along the back of the blade, is there any other way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
