Default Which PC handle to buy?

Hello everyone,

I am Lalli and I have been engraving since January this year and I have a GRS Graver Max but would love to buy the Classic Palm Control. I was confused seeing so many options for handles.

Can you please advise/suggest which handle is best with the classic PC
Santoprene rubber handle,
Burl Wood Handle or Steel,
(Damascas is out of budget for now)

Thanks so much! Kind Regards - Lalli

I love my stainless steel handle. I think the extra inertia the weight provides improves the high power performance a little bit. And itís engravable...that I might get to one day!

ive been using the rubber handle for years and find it comfortable, but if using it for deep cutting or sculpting the heaver steel handle would be better.

@carl bleile - Thanks so much for responding. I am a beginner and yes I will be trying to practice for longer hours (hopefully) and comfort is the main thing.

Hi Lalli
I have used the black handles on the artisan and classic air gravers since I acquired them some years back ,they work fine , I also use the tungsten piston too with the same handle.

@SEngraver - Thanks so much! I finally placed an order for the Classic PC set with Santoprene rubber handle for now. Will eventually add the burl and steel handles to my collection once I actually hopefully start selling my engraved pieces in the future.

Hi Lalli
All the best . Remember to get some templates and graver blanks.
