Did I buy at Left Handed Knife by mistake?

gbednarz | Jan 18, 201108:33 AM     34

Yesterday I went to Korin!! I love this store; their selection is unmatched. I bought a 7" Misono UX10 gyuto and brought it home happy. This morning when I was admiring it before work, I noticed that If I hold the knife in my right hand the word "Misono" is facing me. This is different then my MAC and Tojiro Pettys. I am worried that this indicates that I bought a left handed knife by accident. I know that the handedness determines sharpening angles and don't want to make errors. Any advice knife experts? I want to know if I need to return it and so shouldn't use it as soon as I arrive home from work.

Thanks for your advice.
