Hey this may be odd but everyone always says "my hands are small" or "I have thin hands" etc. I thought I'd just run a little scientific experiment. If you have a fair amount of time on your hands (pun intended), measure them.

I traced my hand onto paper and measured it there. It's probably a little off but I think that is more accurate than trying to measure a 3-dimensional hand.

Length will be defined as the distance from the tip of the middle finger (or whichever is your longest Smile ) to the base of your palm.

Width is just the widest part. Mine was about the meaty part of the base of my thumb to edge of my palm.

So for me my stats were:
L: 7.8in. or 18.54cm
W: 3.8in. or 9.65cm

Someone else please do this or I'm gonna feel like an even bigger nerd than I am. If I can get a large enough sample I will put together a little report on what the statistical means and medians, etc., are for magician hands. Smile

Right Hand
L=7 7/8" or 20 cm
w=4 1/8" or 10.5cm

Left Hand
L=8" or 20.3 cm
W=4 1/4" or 10.7cm

And I am left handed if that means anything.

length: 19.1
width: 10.6

Having long fingers kinda helps when trying to pull off those knuckle busters. Smile

And the final nail in the coffin. I've always thought that Jeff McBride must have huge hands, well I got the opportunity to meet Jeff recently and I said, "I'm sorry but I gotta know".

We compared hands and our hands are the SAME size!!!! So no more excuses for me or anyone who's stats were near mine. Smile Practice, practice, practice.
