All year round, we fit in with home and office layouts designed for right-handers’ comfort – put up with doors, cookers, sinks, computer mice, keyboards and desks that are efficient for right-handers to work at, and hundreds of times every day we contort ourselves using back-to-front tools and gadgets that make us look clumsy and awkward in our efforts to make them to workâ€¦
On Left Handers Day, it is your chance to GET YOUR OWN BACK on your right-handed friends colleagues and family, by designating your personal space as a LEFTY ZONE where everything must be done left-handed! Download our unique Lefty Zone posters for prominent display, plus any others from our selection of FREE LEFT-HANDERS DAY POSTERS, re-arrange the room for your convenience, and settle down to enjoy the Left Handers Day website, totally dedicated to YOU.
In addition to having a bit of fun we are using this Day to raise awareness of the issues arising from our recent article and feedback on teacher training and left-handed children. We have sent out a press release about this and expect to get some good media coverage of the story. If you have any connections in the media, please pass on the information.
Have a look at our Left Handers Day web site for all the latest information
Most normalâ€ knives for right-handers are serrated on the LEFT of the blade – the idea being that the effect of the serrations counter-acts the natural inward (clockwise as you see it) twisting action of the right hand, leading to a straight cut. If a left-hander uses one of these knives, the serrations actually EMPHASIZE the natural anti-clockwise twisting motion of the left hand which leads to the classic overhangingâ€ loaf or whatever is being cut. All our knives are serrated on the RIGHT side of the blade to give the correct balanced action for left-handers and generally people are very pleased that they can suddenly cut straight!
Our scalloped blade range of knives has been always very popular but some kitchen jobs are better done with a plainer, bevelled blade, but it still works a lot better in the left hand if it is bevelled just on the right side of the blade. We have now found a manufacturer to produce a range of high-quality bevelled knives for us, with dual density handles for great grip and balance. They are top quality steel and all dishwasher safe.
There are 4 matching knives in the new range – clicik on an image or item name to find out more or order.
