Looking for left handed knife

i'm looking for a left handed pocket knife that also locks the blade in place for a low cost.

I see many right handed knifes like this but not left handed.

Suggestions ?

What's your price range?

I have a cold steel recon one(I paid $85) for it at a gun show. You can change it from right to left pocket carry pretty easily. Same thing with a cold steel AK47.

I've also got the Recon 1 from Cold Steel. Paid 79.95 for it. Comes with two pocket clips. I got a gift of a very nice knife the same week, so I've never used it. Still in the box. If you're interested in something like that, I'm cleaning out my gun closet this week. Make me an offer.

All Most lock back Spydercos are ambidextrous with few exceptions.


I have no problems using a liner lock either. I guess some do.

Brenchmade knives with the "axis" locking mechanism are lefty friendly.
http://www.benchmade.com/products/556

They can be opened/closed with either hand and the pocket clip can be attached on either side. There should be several models you can get for under a hundred dollars. Chris Reeve makes a lefty only folder but I think its $300 maybe $400. Good luck.

Priced from high to low, Chris Reeve, Spyderco Military, and a few CRKTs come in left hand frame/liner lock.

Spyderco and Benchmade have several that are basically ambi, you just unscrew and relocate the clip.

One of my best buds is a lefty. I believe he has a Benchmade Griptillian and a Spyderco Manix 2.

Spyderco Manix 2 or Manix 2XL. I am a lefty, like both, and carry the 2XL every day.
