    So the other grip thread inspired me to try a Zivkovic.

    I wear a size 9 glove and use exclusively Small Visconti Grips.

    I think the Zivkovic Z will be an interesting grip to try, but it's their only model that doesn't say which hand size it's supposed to fit.

    For example, the KII reads: "The Zivkovic KII handle is a smaller version of the original Zivkovic K handle. It is meant for fencers who have small hands but like the style and comfort of the K."

    Looking at the pictures, the Z looks to have a longer front "nozzle" than the KII.

    I visited Mr. Zivkovic awhile back and was also interested in the Z series. Having looked at my hands, he suggested I use a ZII. My glove size is a 9.5 and the ZII fit me pretty well. I think a Z should fit you fine. The nozzle is a bit long, but you can always saw that down a bit.

    I also found that the Z series forces tight blade work/finger control, and IMO is not a very good flicker grip.

    Hope that helps.
