    There’s a gazillion custom makers at this point, surely there has to be some lefties out there somewhere cranking out blades, right? Anybody know of a lefty knife maker?

    Would be great to find a great lefty knife maker charging a 40% markup for righty blades!

    I’m a lefty, my father is a lefty, my second son is a lefty. Only one of us is a knife maker, though.

    And they have the nerve to brag about their efforts.

    Butch Harner made me a left handed Kamagata Usuba and didn’t charge extra. Perfectly ground knife.
