There are all sorts of things that we, as lefthanders, find awkward or difficult in some way and often we are not aware that it is a direct result of our handedness. We have had a lot of emails on this subject with people mentioned lots of other things they find awkward that, once they started thinking about it, were actually left-handed things. These included:
We are very interested to know more about which hand left-handers use for various activities, how left-handedness runs in families and how left-handers lives are affected by their hand preference. We have created a short survey form to tell us about you and your family and we will keep updating our results and the conclusions we draw from them and reporting in our newsletters.
Here are the initial results from the section on which hand people use for various activities:
A lot of left-handers struggle with using scissors because they are made for right-handers – especially young children when they first start cutting out shapes at school. If you use a right-handed scissor in your left hand there are two big problems:
Proper left handed scissors are manufactured with the blades reversed so the top blade is always on the LEFT so you can see your cutting line and get a clean cut. If the top blade is not on the left as you look while you are cutting, they are NOT left-handed!. Can you just turn a pair of right-handed scissors upside down – NO!
We have had specially designed left-handed scissors made for lots of different uses. You can see our full range here and there are examples of the different types of left handed scissors with links below:
