Where did you learn this? Got a link to the book or article? Bevel 1 is not the same as 5. Only 1 refers to the part of the grip facing the sky. Only 5 describes the part of the grip facing the ground.
If what uou prescribe were true, you could describe a Western forehand and hit it with the BACK of the palm facing the opponent durning contact with the ball!
