I was at Home Depot the other night, and they had Husky brand Titanium Coated Scissors for $7. One was slightly bent, for cutting string beds, and the other straight for trimming grips.

If you use an overwrap, just wrap that left handed. I don't think you can feel the grip with an over wrap, the important thing is to keep the bevels. If you don't use an overwrap, then you would have to put an opposite angle cut at the start and wrap left handed.
