This knife popped into my mind as I read your answers. Takeda makes great knives and this Hankotsu is a traditional Japanese boning knife. They are typically single sided but he does his knives neutral so it will work perfectly for you.

If you're just getting into hand made Japanese knives I can't think of a better place to start than with Shosui's knives. He's a great smith and runs a really good blacksmith operation.

There are a few other sizes and styles that he does that also might interest you. The Mioroshi and the Banno Bunka are both fun and would most likely work for you.

Location: USA... mostly.
M <> Hand made by one of the premier blade smiths on the planet. There are 3 left of this unique Hankotsu <link>. It is double-bevel for you, a lefty, and has a quasi octagonal handle. The Hankotsu profile is much more versatile than the bird processor, the Honesuki.
