This is an iKon miniature prototype stainless steel handle that I obtained several years ago. It originally had a boar knot which I removed and replaced with a TGN badger. It weighs 77 grams and is only 3.0 " tall.
I will try it out in several days after the epoxy that holds the loft to the base curies. Its the only one in existence that I am aware of.

The handle Teiste without the knot is only 35 mm tall. Its tiny so 77 grams is heavy. If it fell on ones toes it could do a lot of damage. I would say its very comfortable in my hand but not for someone with large hands. You wouldn't be able to hold it comfortably. I will try it out probably Thursday as I want the epoxy to cure. I used marine grade which is extra strong and waterproof.

Is it slippery at all? It looks pretty smooth.

Not at all. Its small enough to hold it firmly with three fingers.
