Recently, a customer asked us, “Is there a good knife for a Left-handed cook ? “


This may be one of the serious concern for left-handed people.

Our answer is “YES”.
There are some choice and examples as follows,

(1) Double-edged stainless gyuto or santoku(all purpose knife) for both right-and-left handed,

< Standard Stainless Type >
< Damascus-Pattern Stainless Type (Good Idea for Gift) >

(2) Single-edged Japanese style stainless blades for left-handed,

ManyJapanese style blades are single-edged — please be noted that they are rather for skilled cooks — for right-handed person unfrortunately. Few left-handed versions are stocked.

But you can order some customized left-handed knives if you allow a longer lead time and cost.
Please refer to the blog about Double-edged and Single-edged blade.

The customer, who asked the opening question, made a decision to purchase one of the above knives with great care.

When you need more information and want to order the one, please do not hesitate to contact us 🙂
We’ll support you as much as possible.

Hoping you’ll get the best knife for your loved one.
