San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 15, 2017
Lefty's the Left Hand Store is holding a Left-Handed pumpkin carving video contest! Check out Lefty's San Francisco's Facebook site for details about entering.
Lefties are known for being both funny and creative. An astonishingly high percentage of comedians are left-handed (Jon Steward, Tina Fey, Dan Akroyd, Jerry Seinfeld, Charlie Chaplin, .....), as are artists (ranging from Leonardo da Vinci, Toulouse Lautrec, and Paul Klee, to M.C. Esher and R. Crumb). On top of this, left-handers historically have been vilified as evil or threatening. The words for left or left-handed in many languages are negative, even scary! Consider "sinister", derived from the Latin word for left!
Lefty's San Francisco wonders if left-handers carve more extraordinary pumpkins than righties. This contest is intended to provide a showplace for left-handed artists with a special affection for sinister comedy!
On top of the artistic challenge to carve the best pumpkins, left-handers also face a physical challenge. Carving tools like knives and even box cutters are designed for right-handers. Lefty's has two lefty tools that many carvers can use - the left-handed box cutter, has the sliding control on the left face rather than the right, and the left-handed "Perfect Peeler", which has an ergonomic lefty grip, and a head that can rotate into 3 different positions - vertical, horizontal, and 45 degrees. With its ceramic blades, this peeler can make subtle and complex shapes, especially good for pumpkin carving. Many new techniques for the most amazing pumpkins use peelers.
Lefty's also carries a full variety of left-handed cooking knives. The l efty paring knife can be especially useful for carving scary pumpkins!
There is no requirement to use Lefty's products in order to win this contest, but they could be helpful!
Contestants should post their videos on Lefty's Facebook Page. The videos with the most views will win - so they should be posted soon in order to get the most views. First prize is a $100 gift certificate to thelefthandstore.com, and the runner-up will receive a $50 gift certificate.
