At Forrests Music, they sell the Landwell D (for $158.00) which is non-handed, but they also sell a less expensive Landwell ($108.00) which is still double hollow ground, but handed.

The listing for the cheaper knife: "An excellent Canadian made double hollow ground knife, available made of soft, medium, or hard steel. The leading and trailing edges are ground at different angles, which is what makes this a handed knife. Available right or left handed.

So it is not necessarily the case that a double-hollow-ground knife is not ground to be a left or right hand knife. I have this less-expensive Landwell knife and it is the best knife I have ever owned.

The description of the Model D: "An excellent Canadian made double hollow ground knife. The model "D" is non-handed and is thinner and more delicate than the standard double hollow ground models. It is made of medium hardness steel only."
