Tag for how knives are held in this style

There needs to be some type of tag to cover this, those two may end up covering the basics, however.

I'd like to see more posts where a knife is being held like that, to make clearer that creating the new tag is a good idea.

    ...However, relatedly, this needle (post #873317) and this fan (post #796065) are being held between the index finger and the thumb, too.

    OP is referring to the three knives held in the left hand (from character's POV), not the single one held in the right.

    This seems to be a pretty stylized way of holding knives, it reminds me a lot of wolverine in terms of how it looks, is there a technical or japanese term for holding knives in this way?

    The different ways knives are being held in post #1017321 and post #1045515 are equally interesting to me.

    So, I'd prefer just populating between fingers satisfactorily, instead of creating something more specific like wolverine knives. (EDIT: But I wouldn't fight against the new Wolverine tag; I just see no need for it.)

    (I helped a little: the search knives between_fingers returns 10 pages now, even though it says eight)
