There are many types of ergonomic tools on the market, however some are just regular hand tools with extra padding or support. Though they provide more comfort, they don't give all the benefits of a truly ergonomically designed tool. The new line of tools from Radius features a laborsaving design that goes a step further. Based on their Natural Radius Grip system, the handle is designed at a natural angle to transfer arm strength right to the blade, so it reduces hand stress. The handle is made of a comfortable material that's easy to grip, even when wet. The aluminum and magnesium blades are ultra-lightweight, yet surprisingly durable.
