Spydercos in hand picture thread

Postby Doc Dan » Sun Aug 09, 2020 12:19 am

Sometimes it is useful to have a picture of how a knife fits into someone’s hand. Here is an Endura 4 in my hand. I wear a 2XL glove tightly.

I’ll try to get a picture of the other side later. As can be seen, not much handle sticks out.

Just a few pics I had saved. I wear a mens small glove. Hope this is the kinda stuff you wanted. I know I'm not griping all of them tightly but my hand makes a good reference point for size.

This is a useful thread. I wonder if all of the posters might let us know what glove size they wear so that we can get a better idea of how the knives might fit in our hands (as the OP did). I wear XL gloves, so some knives just don’t work for me because the handles are too short or too skinny. Thanks!

I think pictures section is sadly unutilized. Things would get a lot more traction in the main section of the forum.

I rarely go there for some reason.

I’m disinclined to add to this thread given the one already mentioned. That’s where I put my in-hand Siren. What a knife!

I like the idea behind both of these threads, but I think they could be better executed.

I don't find this sort of image useful for judging ergonomics.

Technically all three photos show a knife in my hand, but the latter two provide a lot more information to me.
