Fujiwara for lefties?

Mon Sep 24, 2012 2:26 pm

Hi, I would like to know if the knives you sell are available for left-handed people. I would be interested in purchasing the Fujiwara FKM Stainless Petty 120mm, but I want to make sure it will be suitable for me as a left hander. Are the blades single-bevel or evenly beveled? Please let me know when you get a chance. Thank you.
Sincerely,
Barry

Hi Barry,

The Fujiwara blades are ground flat on the left side and they have an edge that is assymetric (my guess is about 70/30). The handles are mirro image.

These actually will work fine for you if you're a lefty but if you're concerned about it you can try a different brand like the Tojiro DP which is ground evenly and has 50/50 edges.
