Handedness poll (probably the first poll in a while for this comm)

If you're wondering why I'm asking all the questions I'm asking here, it's because although I'm strongly right-handed, there are certain things that I sometimes do with my left hand that are awkward or even impossible for me with my right hand (ie., using a phone handset or snapping my fingers). I was curious if the same might be true for others.

Are you predominantly...

right-handed?
120(77.4%)
left-handed?
24(15.5%)
ambidextrous? (That is, an equal preference for both hands.)
9(5.8%)
undecided on which hand is most strongly preferred?
2(1.3%)
refusing to answer this question for whatever reason? XD

EDIT: I need to clarify the questions about utensils. The question about holding a fork or spoon applies to when you are actively using that utensil (regardless of what else you might have in the other hand). And as for the question about using a knife, I meant which hand do you primarily use it in if you are holding something else in the other hand? The reason I asked that was because some folks switch their forks to their other hand so that they can use the knife in their primary hand.
