Thinking about the spydiechef or kapara. The kapara seems more ambi friendly but the spydiechef just seems so awesome (and I do often prepare food lol!) Any idea how the chef is for lefties? It looks like the hole is half hidden on that side and only relieved on the other, but am curious if it can still be reliably opened lefty.

I really liked the knife and it was easy enough for me to spydie flick, but I eventually sold it because I wished it was easier to open normally with the thumb. I was able to fit the side tip of my left thumb to access the hole with my slim medium sized hands. I ended up getting the kapara and like it a lot more. The only thing I miss from the spydiechef was that it is a salt series knife.

I had no problem flicking it open, or if I wanted I could push it partially open with my index and finish with my thumb.

Spydie flick is the answer, I resisted at first and skipped the chef and bowie, eventually got a chef and loved it, missed out on the bowie however...

Thanks all.
It is hard to decide on some of these knives because a lot of brick and mortar stores won't let you in to try em these days! I was fortunate to have a spydie dealer within driving distance; prefer to see the stuff myself but the collective experience of the forum is the next best thing!
