A Left Handed Bread Knife – YIPEE!

Not long ago, my mother-in-law came to visit, and as per usual, she would bring me things that she no longer wanted from her house. Being left handed, most of these gadgets were useless to me.

I have been married for 29 years, and this has become a familiar ritual with our family.

She was always bringing me cutlery that “didn’t work” or scissors that “didn’t cut”

Which brings me to her “well meaning gift”. She shows me this large bread knife, and says “You can have this dear, because it is too dull and does not cut for me”. Besides, thinking the obvious, about why someone would give away a dull bread knife for a gift, I politely took it, and put it away to be discarded later.

A few days later, I had made a fresh loaf of bread in my bread maker, and grabbed this bread knife, and by habit, put it in my left hand. Up until now, you must understand, I can’t carve anything with a knife, as I completely shred it in my left hand, or worse yet, injure myself. But I looked at this knife and realized, that there was nothing wrong with this bread knife, it was perfect for me.

This bread knife was a left handed bread knife, and yes there is a difference! The serrations on the knife are on the opposite side to a regular right hand knife. I was stunned and amazed, that there was such a thing, and I made a beautiful cut in the loaf of bread.

Even though left handed people are only 7 to 10% of the population, it is nice to have something created for a left handed person.

I have since found that there are companies now, that make everything from left handed bread knives, to carving knives, can openers, pens, rulers, tape measures, even left handed note books… and the list goes on. So there is no more struggling with right handed gadgets for me.

So, all you left handed creators out there, give yourself the gift of left handed tools and products that will make your life easier in this right handed world!

This was the best gift I got from my mother-in-law yet!
