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,
(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.
Thank you for reading and best regards!
