Tojiro ITK bread knife for a lefty?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi Folks- Need to get a bread knife. I'm looking at the Tojiro ITK and the Victorinox Fibrox.  I like the Tojiro ITK because it looks like the scalloped "serrations" would work better, and be better able to be sharpened down the road. And I like the handle better. But, I'm a lefty. It looks like the ITK has a much deeper bevel on one side than the other, whereas the Victorinox looks more symmetrical. Does the ITK steer funny for a lefty because the edge is more asymmetrical than the Forschner?

thanks!

John

FWIW, the Fujiwara petty I've got supposedly came with a 70/30 rightie edge, but I didn't notice anything weird with it when I got it. On the other hand, I sharpen it 50/50, so whatever asymmetry it has will be temporary- a situation that won't apply to the bread knife...

The Mac bread knife works really well for this lefty, too. It's also become my go-to knife for very ripe tomatoes.

I have the ITK bread knife and am a lefty and have no troubles with the knive whatsoever.

It's a great knive and I love it. I'd say go for it, you won't regret it smile.gif
