However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened 50/50 without problems.

I have ordered three JCK knives from Japanese Chefs Knives over the past four years. Each experience was excellent. I was very happy with the communication about the order and shipment. Each order was promptly processed and shipped. Delivery always was successful in the amount of time communicated. The knives are beautiful and of excellent quality. The oldest still holds a very sharp edge even after four years of constant use. I made gift of one of these knives and the recipient was delighted to receive such a beautiful hand made item! I definitely recommend Japanese Chefs Knives for their excellent service and beautiful products!
Extremely fast tracked international shipping and excellent customer service, all my inquiries were answered promptly. I am a home cook and I find this knife to be balanced, comfortable and absolute pleasure to use. It is sharp enough out of the box but can get even sharper once you put an edge on it. I recommend this knife.
First real chef knife. Knife came sharp as a razer and has incredible to handle. Cuts beautifully and the design of the whole knife is a great fit in my hand. Would definitely recommend.
Pleasure to use. Fits my hand very well. Very fast shipping.
