    I'm doing some reserch on how chefs hold their knives. I have observed many chefs who grip the knife blade as oppossed to the handle

    Are you referring to the "pinch grip"?

    I'm fairly certain that Boar_D_Laze will "weigh in" and discuss that. IMHO, it provides more control than gripping the handle for most culinary knife work.
