THE PROBLEM: To allow someone with limited or no use of their fingers ( i.e. arthritis, paralysis ) to use a heavy sharp carving knife safely.
THE SOLUTION: As shown, the plastic grip, made from the same material used for casts and braces ( that is made malleable by soaking it in hot water ) is shaped t conform to the hand. Wrap over elastic velcro is pulled over the rop using the teeth on two tabs.
NOTE: Getting holes drilled through the stainless steel knife can be a challenge and requires a special bit.
