Hi. I'm looking to purchase a western carbon sujihiki for under $200 and have been looking at the Kikuichi Elite Carbon 270. Since I'm a lefty—is the blade very asymmetrical [convex?] to the point that it wouldn't be a good choice even if I moved the edge to left-handed? My sharpening skills are not great—but decent.
Also, I've read many positive reviews on the knife in the past—but not a lot of them recently, just wondering why.
Any insight on the Kikuichi suji or other knife suggestions for this lefty would be greatly appreciated.
