The GripForward properties is one of the properties that specifies a Tool’s orientation in a character’s hand. This represents the R02, R12, and R22 values of the Grip DataType/CFrame|CFrame's rotation matrix.

Other tool properties that control how a player holds a tool include: Grip/GripUp|Up, Grip/GripRight|Right, and Grip/GripPos|Pos properties. All of these properties are stored in a single CFrame in the Tool/Grip property.

In order to change a tool’s grip properties, you must either use a Script or LocalScript or a Studio plugin such as this one.
