While there are tons of knives out there deemed ambidextrous, many still work better when used in the right hand and leave something to be wanted for lefties and the like. Whether you’re left-handed or prefer having a knife to carry on your off-hand, this list of knives covers some of the Best Left Hand Knives we have at Blade HQ. We break down some left hand specific knives and a couple ambidextrous knives because they’re truly ambidextrous. Let’s get to it!
