    Cyber Monday is coming, and The Epicurean Edge has plenty of left-handed yanagibas. Whether they will go on sale is unknown, but it's worth checking every hour.
    All cats are libertarians. Completely dependent on others, but fully convinced of their own independence.

    I feel for the OP. Being a lefty sucks for single bevel knives. Paying 40-50% extra for being better than everyone else is hard to take. I bought a lefty usuba a while ago which was dear as hell, could have pretty much bought any well-known maker I wanted but I bought a less-well known one and paid through the nose.

    Keiichi at BluewayJapan has a few lefty usubas and yanagis but I'm not sure if they're what you're looking for, they are pretty cheap. If I were you I'd try a Watanabe maybe if you're gonna get a new one. Wouldn't be cheap, but not as expensive as others about
