Default Kettlebell grip

I am looking to figure out how to correctly hold a kb when coming down from a snatch (is my primary concern) and coming down from a press and going immediatly into a swing position (or a second snatch).

With the arm in a vertical position and kb between the knees / legs, should the kb just be held by the fingers (like a pull up grip) or is it more like a gymnastic false grip, where the handle would be resting on the joints / pads of skin where the fingers meet the hand?

It seems to be hard for me to come down from a snatch, into a second snatch and get the kb out onto fingers only.
