Especially designed for the southpaw.

Unlike a normal knife and fork, the lefty knife and fork has been re-engineered with the knife on the left and the fork on the right. As you can see from the illustration, they remain visually identical to other cutlery in our range while utilising a form factor more accessible to the left-dominant population.

Made out of premium grade Sheffield stainless steel - order yours today and impress your lefty guests!

       Your illustration reminds me of something that mildly perturbed me for years - probably decades. I used to wonder why it is that the embossed writing or legend on a pen or pencil was upside-down. Obviously I didn't question this too far, as I simply assumed it was some sort of industry quirk - that it was more important that the name was readable by someone else viewing the writer, than by the writer themselves. Surprisingly late in my life it dawned on me that it's for the benefit of the other lot - the right-handers.

       <picks up pen> Oh yeah! Never noticed, being one of the majority.

       Ha ha ha, you lefties crack me up.

       Ian: what I never understood was why it was always on the wrong side of the pencil.

       I love your photo. It would be useful for lefties to have elbow pads, as that is the 'clash' while dining with righties.
