Ideal Knife for a Left-Handed Cook
on May 20, 2015
Ideal knife for a left-handed cook. This is the second Ginsu knife I've gotten and am just as thrilled with this one as the first. I'm left-handed, newly vegan and frankly just now discovering how much fun cooking can be with the right (or left) tools. The old commercials about Ginsu knives holds true with mine. They cut through a raw sweet potato just as easily as thin slicing a ripe tomato. And I'm pleased with how comfortable both of my Ginsu knives feel in my left hand. At this price, it was worth trying for me and I'm glad I did.
My first Ginsu knife is a large butcher style. Which means I needed something thinner to core apples and cut the rind off melon wedges. This Tomato Knife does it. It is so sharp that I keep it put away from the rest of the family. I haven't really found the use for the pronged tip yet, but that's very sharp as well. So warning - be careful in handling this knife.
I also switched to bamboo cutting boards (from the plastic ones I had previously) and that does make a difference in not dulling a knife. My Ginsu knives are as sharp as Day 1, even with using them multiple times a day. I'm careful to wash them after each use, dry and put away. At this rate, I have many years of use from them. Well worth the price I paid.
