    Are either of the gyutos appropriate for a left hander?

    I can't imagine there would be an asymmetrical grind on either without the seller mentioning it, so both should still be 50/50 double bevel knives. Perfect for ambidextrous cutting or dual wielding. :lol:

    Looking at pictures you may notice Shigefusa comes with right-handed D handle and that woudn't be comfortable for most lefties.
    Konosuke has octagon handle which should be fine for everyone.

    As for the grind, I believe it was Jon who said something like: "if it's 50/50 — it's not a gyuto", which means most gyuto's has asymmetrical grid.

    I'd say the Konosuke would be fine for a lefty, I've got a Kono HD and it's no problem at all
