What do lefty's do who want a Hiromoto ?

Besides ordering a left handed knife? Well that is if one is available and if they don't mind paying the 30% upcharge. No wonder this doesn't get brought up by the retailer, too easy to lose a sale.

Masahiro offers standard carbon blades, with the entire geometry adapted for left-handed. Right side flat, left side convexed. Some 25% more than the common right-handed ones.

some knives can be adjusted at the edge while others need to be reground through a process somewhat similar to thinning, but geared towards changing the blade geometry with regard to asymmetry
