Left Hand Conversion Service
I noticed some people were looking for a left hand conversion service. Korin has you covered. :thumbsup:
At Korin, we can convert any western style knives to a left handed blade, regardless of whether or not they were purchased from us. Left handed boning knives must be special ordered may take up to two months to be shipped and will cost 25% more.
Please be aware that in order to utilize any knife to its fullest potential, we advice customers to never change the blade’s bevel. 50/50 beveled knives were engineered to be symmetrical, the same way 70/30 knives are engineered to to be asymmetrical. The blade for symmetrical bevel knives are put in the center, therefore changing the bevel in that fashion may result in the blade being more brittle.
Left handed traditional Japanese knives must be special ordered. Special ordered Japanese knives will take up to two months and cost 50% more than the right handed traditional Japanese knife. This is due to the fact that older generation Japanese people are trained to be right handed, regardless of being left handed. Therefore, there is a higher risk of mistakes and wasted material. Please inquire for further information and we'll be happy to try to meet your needs.
Conversion service is $20 per knife.
If you are interested in trying out our services for the first time, please let me know. I will be happy to offer you a free conversion for a knife as long as you can provide me with the shipping fees. :)
