Until now I used wooden parts of the handle. I was searching for new things because I was tired, but I could not find a thing with this length. In the meantime I found this spatula of Allsten and bought it. I was worried about the stickiness of spatula, koshi etc, but it is very good sticky and easy to use. It is also very hygienic. Just because the weight got heavier, I think that I will get used to it for a long time although I get tired.
