AFAIK never used in a sentence.

(KGT 97):  The smaller {nevDagh} [pot] is characterized by its V-shaped handles, termed {DeSqIvDu'} ("elbows"; note the {-Du'}, the plural suffix for body parts is used here even though the handles are not literally body parts).

ret'aq 		handle/hilt (of knife) (n)
DeS 		ax handle (n)

raQ 		manipulate by hand, handle (v)
