These models contain the same tools as the corresponding right-handed models but were assembled in the reverse order, also having important changes such as moving the nail-nicks on the tools, so that they are still easily accessible in the alternate left-handed layering.
If the individual tools are not symmetrical, they use a left to right inverse design: For example, the edge on the can-opener is on the opposite side; and the scissor blades are reversed. The tools on the back of the knives retain the same positions relative to their right-handed counterparts, but the twist on the corkscrew is reversed for an easier counter-clockwise left-handed operation.
Wenger also manufactured some other models in left-handed versions, such as the Swiss Star, a special tool for maintaining reeds in woodwind musical instruments. These models use an inverse grind on the blade, changing a chisel-ground blade from a right to left-sided grind. This changing of the grind with chisel-ground blades is more common and also used by other manufacturers.

Some left-handed models contain a right-hand twisted corkscrew (unconfirmed).
These models were sometimes known as the Southpaws in the United States.
Two catalogue pages for the left-handed models (in French) can be seen here and here.
