    Hi: anyone able to make a left-handed butter knife, or know someone who can? It would be a gift for my (left-handed) father-in-law and mean a lot. I'm looking for one where the asymmetry is reversed, and the smooth edge is on the right and the kinked edge is on the left. See pictures below. If anyone is interested in doing this for us, please reply. Of course we'll be glad to pay for the effort. Thanks!

    What about reversing the angles on a right handed butter knife?

    Hi: thanks for your reply! Not sure what you mean. Do you mean the angle at which the blade sits relative to the handle? If that's asymmetric (to make it right handed in the original), then yes, that would ideally be reversed as well...

    You can find them at Home Depot next to the left handed screwdrivers. :p

    I told my wife that posting this question on a knife forum would totally ruin my reputation!

    . Messer, Flat ware like those are made of 300 series non hardenable steel.. Very few here work with that grade as far as I know! You can tell your wife that, we STILL love you! ;)

    Flatten a right handed knife and then reshape to make it left handed.
    (Both sides of the handle would need to be the same)

    Nice insight but I think it's easier to purchase one than remodeling.
