Generally, whichever hand “feels right” is the right hand to hold
the torch. I’m right handed and tend MOST of the time to hold my
torch in my right hand for fine control of the flame. However, there
are times that I’m doing something that requires significant
dexterity with my solder pick or tweezers, and then hold the torch in
my left hand.
Interestingly, the first teacher that most of the students at our
school encounter is a leftie. She holds the torch in her left hand.
I’m amazed at how many right-handed students end up using their left
hands to hold the torch because that’s how they’ve seen her do it…
so they assume it’s the “right” way.
As with much of jewelry, there is no ONE right way.
Hope this helps!
