I know this post is old, but, the kershaw shun is a double beveled knife, and is made for right and left handed people. It has a bend in it, and the handle is D shaped to fit your hand. Right or Left. I highly recomend this knife, it is incredibly smooth. I have the 8" chef knife.

Be gutsy. Believe in what you are doing. Find your bollocks. You must have confidence in your skills. Smile. Enjoy it.
