European-style knives are more tailored to use by both lefties or righties. These blades are equally angled on either side of the edge, though lefties will still have a hard time with serrated knives.
If you're left-handed and have had trouble finding a knife that feels right in your hand, take a look at some of these leftie knives:
• Shun Classic Left-Handed 8-Inch Chef's Knife, $145 from Amazon.com
• Shun Classic Left-Handed Paring Knife, $80 on Amazon.com
