The Other Side of the Peeler
At home, I was using the peeler a lot one day. My hand started to get tired, so I switched hands and kept going. The peeler was a lot sharper on that side, because I hardly ever use it right-handed. That was when I realized that my co-workers were probably right about the peeler. I'm the only lefty at work. My guide knife is sharper and my side of the peeler is more effective. Maybe I should buy them a new peeler.
Now, if you're not really ambidextrous, I don't recommend switching hands with anything sharp. Peelers aren't expensive and they do last several years under normal household conditions. It's just something to consider.
