I am looking at this question and its answers, and it seems the only legitimate way to implement a grab cursor in IE11 is to use an image like this:

 cursor: url(images/grab.cur);

Browsing the internet I don't find any such images for which I can be 100% sure that they are free to use without any obligations.

Does anyone know an image for "grab" cursor that is definitely free and without any obligations?

I suggest looking at these for background info:





And from what I know, the grab cursor included as part of Webkit is freely useable as is - if I'm incorrect, or it's not to your taste, it's the work of a few minutes to create your open open-hand / grab cursor in Illustrator, Inkscape, Sketch app or Affinity Designer, and export as a .png, then use an online converter to make that into a .cur file.

Failing that, the Entypo+ glyph set is free to use, comes as sheer vector, and has a nice vector open hand glyph in it - easy to convert.

Also consider looking at the resources of The Noun Project which are all royalty-free, open source, and pretty darn well developed.

Hope this helps.
