Left Handed Knives
Japanese Traditional Single bevel Knives,such as Yanagiba, Deba, Usuba Knives, etc., are basically designed for Right Handed. In spite of Left handed users(especially Professionals),they were forced to use normal Right Handed Knives in the past.
Now, Left Handed are manufactured, but Q'ty is much smaller than normal ones. For Left Handed, the construction of base tang and manufacturing process are completely different. Therefore, generally speaking Single bevel Left Handed costs 30-50% higher .
