Default We need a left handed Therapen.

Any other lefties get frustrated with their therapen?
Why can't they make one for lefties.

Southpaws are always at a disadvantage.

I am right handed and would like a left handed T-pen. I use it in my left hand while stirring with my right. I can read it upside down but it would be nice.

I don't have a Thermapen yet...But I do have several Super-fast RT600c that I would love to have in a left hand model so I dont have to read them upside down...I've considered some of the handheld models for that reason...But the RT600c works well and is cheap...

A left handed thermapen would be great. I would rather have my tongs in my right hand and the Thermapen in the left. Right now I have it in my left all twisted and contorted while moving things around the grate.

I need a left handed one badly! I do many things right handed but the thermapen wants to be in my left hand (I am left handed) when I turn stuff, etc. Really bugs me!

As a southpaw I am a discriminated against handi-capped minority I believe I will be calling J. Noble Dagget Esq. in the am and seek damages. All you right handed smokers put down the left handed Lucky's and send them to me. :))

That is an American thing. I'm a dual citizen and carry a Danish passport in addition to my American one. My dining habits come from my Danish side and we don't switch the utensils when we eat, either.

Most Europeans are like that.

If you think that's bad... left and right handed nails do exist.

I'm pretty ambidextrous but I'd have ordered a lefty version knowing what I know now. Seems like I usually have it in my left hand and I'm always looking at the back of it, roll it over, and then kinda tilt my head to read it.

I'm not a dual citizen and I do that.

I'm also a southpaw, but have had to adapt to a right-handed world. Because I started using the right-handed Thermopen and have gotten used to it, I would actually find it rather difficult to change over to a left-handed one now.

It's like golf, since I started with a right-hand set, I couldn't use a left-handed set if I tried.

Adapt, Improvise, Overcome!
