Hello Everyone, and Stefan...
Please see attached...Here are the 50 hands in Group 5. As you can see,
the five hands that have spread fingers are in the first column, but
the Claw Hand, which is a different handshape....is in Column 3. What
is the difference? The 5-Bent is spread, and the fingers are bent at
the first joint only. The Claw Hand fingers are together, and they are
bent at both the first and middle joints...more of a bend...Plus the
Claw Hand usually has the thumb forward, where the 5-bent hand usually
has the thumb side...although both can have either...continued next
