Left Handed Knives

Spot The Difference Knives
Most “normal” knives for right-handers are serrated on the LEFT of the blade – the idea being that the effect of the serrations counter-acts the natural inward (clockwise as you see it) twisting action of the right hand, leading to a straight cut. If a left-hander uses one of these knives, the serrations actually EMPHASIZE the natural anti-clockwise twisting motion of the left hand which leads to the classic “overhanging” loaf or whatever is being cut. All our knives are serrated on the RIGHT side of the blade to give the correct balanced action for left-handers and generally people are very pleased that they can suddenly cut straight!

    Well done for being a militant lefty. I’m left-handed, my son is left-handed and so is my cat. I am gradually replacing my right-handed scissors and knives with left-handed ones. Perhaps we should start referring to “north paws”.

    I must be odd then – I checked our knives, and they match the description of the right-handed ones (serrations on the left). But I never have any trouble using them in my left hand; in fact, once I was cutting a loaf of bread, making beautiful straight slices, when my right-handed mom came along and wanted a slice. But, being evidently rather impatient (and I’m not excessively slow!), she took the bread and the knife, turned the loaf around, and hacked off a very crooked slice, spoiling my nice straight end, and I had to cut the next few slices a little crooked to compensate until I got it straight again.

    The example about the serrations of the knives is a bit far fetched…both left and right handed people need to keep the knife cutting vertically with intent..it has nothing to do with the serrations of the knifes…however scissors are another issue..I have a pair of left handed ones that make it much easier to use…there is often too much emphasis placed on handedness ..I am also a sailor and have needed to teach my grandchildren to tie knots…not so easy for right handed children but easy for othe one child that is left handed…however I have learned to tie baic knots both in a righthanded and lefthanded way..something that righthanders do not learn to do
