I have a curious dent, as does my teacher, in my index finger. It is a result of the bow resting on the index finger just below the joint. I hold the bow according to the Dounis method, which is basically a Franco-Belgian hold. This dent doesn't cause me any pain or loss of dexterity in the finger, it just looks a little odd if you examine my hand. I was wondering, does anyone else who rests the bow against the index finger below the joint have this curious dent?
