I recently discovered that the reason I hate cheese knives (but love cheese) is because they are made to work for right-handed people.

So where can I buy a (reasonably priced) cheese knife, or other serrated knives?

What, so we are allowing left handed people to use the site now? What next? –  Sam Holder Oct 5 '10 at 22:26

All professional knives (except for single-bladed Japanese sashimi knives) are ambidextrous.

Do you have a reference for this? I just checked my girlfriend's bread knife from culinary school and it is not the same on both sides. Edit: and even if they were, doesn't answer my question about where to find left-handed cheese knife since they probably don't fall into the 'professional knife' category. –  thelsdj Oct 1 '10 at 22:22

Are you quite sure? Sounds like a crap knife to me. I should have said 'almost all' I suppose. There is no benefit in a serrated knife being handed; for sashimi knives, it allows the knife to be much sharper (like a razor blade). As for your cheese knives, anythingleft-handed.co.uk –  daniel Oct 1 '10 at 22:30
