Hi Mark,

I have a question about the Hiromoto knives you offer. I was considering the 210 gyuto and a paring knife, but I read on another site that Hiromoto knives have a 60/40 bevel? Is this the case? I'm a lefty so it does make a difference. If they only come with a 60/40 bevel, are left handed versions available?

Thanks!
Frank

Hi Frank,

It makes no discernible difference when you use the knife and once you sharpen it you can easily sharpen it evenly if you like. If you are really hung up on the tiny asymmetry you can choose the finish sharpening service and we will sharpen it evenly before we send it out. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/ckshsebyjomc.html

Given that it looks like the blade itself is symmetrical, a 60/40 edge bevel should not cause any issues. Chances are that unless you work to keep the bevel you'll get it to a 50/50 bevel through sharpening anyway. Shouldn't be a big deal at all.

Now if the blade itself was ground for a righty, then you might have some issues.

Edit: Mark beat me to it. lol
