    Lefties Paradise

    Well, all blades in the first batch turned out to be for a left hand use. I changed one step in a process to accommodate working on several blades at the time, and as result, I got lefties - the bevel angle is slightly larger on the left side than on the right . Starting on replacement righties tomorrow!

    These will be offered as ready-made for left hand users.

    False alarm - only a couple are for a left hand use. I just inspected a knife from a reputable J. maker and could say with a certain degree of confidence that it would be more suitable for a left hand user, but it came with a right hand handle.

    It's like a litter of Scotties, where you can have black and brindle puppies. So far two could be better suited for lefties, and they would have left handle. Two are coin toss.

    The next batch will be only for right-hand.

    Took one home to test cutting.

    As you can see, the profile is is Masamoto derived, however the immediate area behind the tip is a bit flatter for efficient tip work. This feature will make it a poor rocker, as tip will have tendency to stick in the board, but it will make a fine pull/push cutter and precise tip worker.

    An update

    This project is on hold until I return from vacation. I ground the whole batch .5mm thinner, and that turned out to be a mistake, as it impacted food release, even though it improved cutting performance (the knife glides through sweet potatoes). I frantically tried to redo the batch, but I kept making mistakes, costly mistakes, and it has had a discouraging effect, so I had to step away from this project, finish a few unrelated projects, and come back to it at a later time.

    I apologize for raising expectations, but everything I send out now has to perform on all levels, or it is a deal breaker.

    I wanted to thank people who committed to this order and I hope the incentives I offered were well received.

    I will go back to my tried and true geometry, an example of which is below. It would be a similar knife you guys will get. Thinness on the edge (tip to heel) is under .005.

    Thanks everybody.
