    a lot of people have a loooot of love for the masamoto KS. and yes i would want an octagonal handle, i'm a lefty. so a lefty grind and an octagonal handle would be a dream to have.

    have you tried a D-handle in both hands? I find a RH D-handle is comfortable in the left hand as well.

    haven't yet. but i'm strongly a lefty when it comes to knives, and i tend to have a heavy grip on the handle so it might be quite uncomfortable for me.

    Most handles are friction fit so I would imagine you could just flip it around?
    once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right

    in my part of the world, we don't really have a lot of access to japanese knives, much less knives with d-handles. so i really wouldn't have known it was like that. kinda ironic since i live in asia and i am so darn close to japan. things like this sometimes kind of makes me think i'd love to have my country less westernized. but thanks for the idea, i kinda like octagonal handles myself.
