A hand-operated implement, which is a shock-producing or vibration-producing implement, having an attenuating handle. The implement has a handle attached to the implement, which handle has a central core, a gripping surface and a gel shock- or vibration-absorbing material positioned adjacent to or recessed in the core and under the gripping surface, wherein the gel shock- or vibration-absorbing material is a gel having a cone penetration between about 100 and 350(10.sup.-1 mm) and a ultimate elongation of at least 100% and wherein the thickness of the gel shock- or vibration-absorbing material is sufficient to substantially maintain a shock- or vibration-absorbing separation between the core and at least a portion of the gripping surface, provided that the thickness of the gel shock- or vibration-absorbing material is less than that which interfers with the use of control of the implement, thereby absorbing the shock or vibration produced by the implement without significantly changing the operating control characteristics of the implement. Also disclosed is a method of attenuating shock and vibration in a handle of an implement.
