as the title suggests, since I was a child i have not been able to cut properly with my right hand. Therefore I've learned to use my contemprorary righty shears with the left hand.

I've always wanted a pair of old shears with the big, contoured grips, except made for a lefty. Do they exist? Help!

Yes but very rare. I have only seen about 2 pairs in the last few years.

I noticed that there are a nice pair of left handed Wilkinson's on eBay. Still at less than $1 US but about $50 shipping - ends Sunday. I think they are in Australia. Never see these so if you are looking.....
