Hello! I'm an infrequent customer looking to buy a Honesuki style knife in the 70-170 dollar price range.

I am interested in the Kikuichi Elite Carbon Steel Honesuki. However, I am left handed! So I need to know the blade angle for this particular Honesuki. I know most are asymmetric in favor of the right-handed bourgeoisie.

If this knife does indeed have an unfavorable asymmetric grind to it, what are some other knives you'd recommend for a lefty? Unfortunately not all the descriptions on your website list blade angle!

Thank you so Much for running such a wonderful website! My co-workers and I think very highly of your business!


Sincerely,

Dan

Hi Dan,

Without knowing your other preferences I highly recommend this Masakage Yuki. It's in your price range and is evenly ground so it will work for you. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/mayuho15.html

The knife is stainless clad and has white #2 carbon steel on the core edge which is reactive. It is a pleasure to sharpen and will take a nice tooty edge which is pefect for butchering. Plus the knife is hand forged and hammered so it's cool and unique. I love these knives.
