Stupid Santoku Knife question re: handedness

Jack_ | Mar 6, 2008 06:38 AM

Is there such a thing or am I, as usual, over thinking this? I am right handed. When I slice a cucumber with my regular chefs knife I hold the cuc in my left hand and the knife in my right hand and the slices come off the right side of the knife. The cuc being, well, a cuc, the slices stick to the blade. It seems to me that if I get a Santoku knife and the scallops are on LEFT side of the blade, the slices are still going to stick to the blade when I use it. Most of the knives I looked at have them on the left, so, what am I missing here?
