Yes my "love handles are, but that's whole other story ;)

If someone could please tell me if I have standard or extended handles please.
My handles measure 12" from tip to tip (measured straight down)
My handles measure 13.5" (measuring along the outside edge from tip to tip)

Do I have standard or extended handles?

Thanking you in advance for your clarification.

Those appear to be the lengths of the original REV I SUL handle that came out around 1993-94. Today I think they are referred to as the extended handle.
Back when that length came out, there were two other shorter handle lengths available which were the standards for the REV I and REV II respectively.
I think the REV I standard handles at that time were Tip to Tip 11.5" or 10" from D-Ring to D-Ring.
I think the REV II standard handle at that time was about 2" shorter.
