1. Start in the Backhand grip, closed position.
2. Let the bite handle fall down and away.
3. Notice that the Ring finger and Pinky are on the opposite side of the handle from the Index finger……………
4. ……..this allows the bite handle to rotate through and into the twirl.
5. Twirl over the back of the Middle finger………..
6. ……….and push down with the Index finger to continue the motion.
7.
8.
9. From here, flip the wrist over………….
10.

 
11. …………. and bring the handles together.
12. Finish in the Backhand grip, open position.

This move is actually a little easier to do (for me anyway) on the horizontal plain, but it made for a bad camera angle. Try it and see if you notice a difference.
