Hmmm I always thought I held it right, but I noticed a couple people (who are better than myself) holding it slightly differently. Wondering if anyone can show me a picture or video or somesuch of how exactly you're supposed to hold it... I suck royally at describing stuff with words... but... I put my thumb up along the side of the handle (thin side) with my palm around the middle of the wider side and my fingers wrapped around the handle.... Anyway, thanks.
