It seems we have not added this property to the Grid MVC wrapper, sorry about that. This problem is now fixed and changes will take effect in the next internal and official builds.
As an immediate workaround, you can execute the following script before initializing the Grid and after registering the Kendo UI scripts:
kendo.ui.Grid.prototype.options.columnResizeHandleWidth = 10;
