I'm in the market for a Honesuki and have a few questions:
1) I'm left-handed and am wondering if the single bevel (whether 90/10 or 70/30) designed for right-handers on most Honesukis will be problematic for me?
2) Does a right-handed knife perform the same for a left-hander, or is it just a thing of preference?
3) Would it be a pain to re-profile a right-handed knife to work for me?
4) Would it be best to order a left-handed version from the knives available at Korin?
I'm still new to Japanese knives, so answers to these questions would be really helpful.
Also, what recommendations do you all have? I'm considering the Fujiwara FKM, Mac, Tojiro DP, Togiharu, Suisin High Carbon, and the Misono Molybdenum. These are all in the sub-$125 range.
