    I guess a babied double bevel knife could perhaps do the job but to be honest I wouldn't mind trying something a little different and I own no single bevel knives at present. Kamagata usuba or the normal nakiri like one? Any suggestions about size? A twist is that I am a lefty. I am thinking of just emailing Koki and asking which makers don't charge such a premium for left handers

    Lefty here too. The traditional knives Koki has have a 40-50 percent bonus for lefty versions (at least they had when I asked about two years ago). Maybe ask Jon if he can pick up something while in Japan to ensure the blade is okay. I might be interested in a 210 Kamagata usuba myself.

    I think I'll try Koki first and then Jon. BluewayJapan have a few lefty usubas which aren't super-expensive but they are mostly 165 and I wonder if they'd be too small
