If you’re cooking as a left-handed person, you may find that you feel awkward and uncomfortable while chopping. This is because many knives are actually built with grooves specifically for people who are right-handed. Priya Krishna from Bon Appetit recommended the Zwilling Chef’s Knife for this very reason. Krishna said, “I’m a left-handed chef…It’s really comfortable. It’s not too big, and I feel a certain sense of control when I’m chopping. I love this knife.” In the Bon Appetit video, she goes on to say that this also holds its sharpness longer than your average knife.
