I was looking at the sashimi knives when I noticed
quote:
These knives are sharpened on one side only, differentiating from the breaking and fillet knives which are ground on both sides
This literally makes them as right handed as a casting reel. Are they available as left-handed?

Yes, you can get left-handed sushi/sashimi knives, but I do not know of a US supplier. I was just in Tokyo last week and picked one up from a knife shop at the Tsujiki fish market area.

One trick to keeping these critters sharp is a good finish stone I opted for a black Arkansas stone, kinda pricey but it works real well in getting that final beyond razor sharp edge.

I bought two Chroma Haiku Yakitori asian style knives too, they are stamped and sharpened western style but preform very well and hold a pretty good edge too. These are my "Everyday" knives, the little 4.5 in Deba knife is a handy little knife and getting to be my go to cutter chopper. For the price you can't beat it
