"handfest" seeks to ensure a painless ease of use dealing with the geometry of the handles. The round profile of conventional plier handles results in a small surface where forces have to be absorbed by the hand. When applying high forces on the handles, painful pressure marks will occur where hand and handles are in contact. Plane handle ends provide a better force distribution and absorption and ensure a firm and secure grip.
