AKKOHS QU Swivel Series
Available Sizes: 5.0", 5.5", 6.0"
QU offset 3D swivel series by Akkohs. The thumb ring rotates around the perpendicular axis for the handle, eliminating strain applied to the hand and wrist. The wider distance between the thumb and finger hole, the greater it reduces thumb travel when cutting.
