Welcome to Jack the Ripper's Asylum! Jack the Ripper In the Autumn of 1888 five prostitutes in an area known as Whitechapel became victims of the killer we now call Jack the Ripper. This is Saucy Jacky's unofficial playground... Check out the discussions, chats, fun and games with like-minded inmates in an attempt to get into the mind and place of Britain's most notorius serial killer... Ha ha. Catch us if you can Mr. Lusk.
Eight little whores, with no hope of heaven, Gladstone may save one, then there'll be seven. Seven little whores beggin for a shilling, One stays in Henage Court, then there's a killing. Six little whores, glad to be alive, One sidles up to Jack, then there are five. Four and whore rhyme aright, So do three and me, I'll set the town alight Ere there are two. Two little whores, shivering with fright, Seek a cosy doorway in the middle of the night. Jack's knife flashes, then there's but one, And the last one's the ripest for Jack's idea of fun.

...After much thought....I've realized I need to ask this question: Does it really matter what hand he used?

Anybody want to throw around that he might be ambidextrous?

He could be, but it's hard to say. I know in those times left handedness was considered to do with the devil and was deeply discouraged, so there is the possibility that he learnt to use both. Being a leftie myself, I've learnt to cut with right handed scissers, use right handed tin openers etc... with my left hand, meaning that I can do all the same actions as a right handed person with the other hand. I also wear a rist watch on the left hand and use my right hand to put it on, so this is a very credible point.

It is a possibility, yes. Being a disorganised serial killer, I also think that maybe events such as the Stride murder fell out of his usual routine and mabye he grabbed her differently as she struggled, so that might expalin the slight differencing in which hands he used. Either that or Stide simply was not a Ripper victim, although I tend to support the idea that she is.

Hi all,
just joined tonight,I have been reading up on Jack the Ripper for years now and at the start was on the side that thought he was left handed(I am another left hander myself) as that was the general impression of the early experts.
Lately though I am starting to believe the Ripper was right handed from the direction of the first cuts.
At least they seem to have been done by the same killer which ever hand he used.
