Can Left-Handed People Use Slice Tools?

Yes, Slice® tools can easily be used by either left- or right-handed users. Generally, our tools fall into three categories:

Tools That Need No Conversion

Slice makes tools that can be used ambidextrously with no adjustment, such as our micro-ceramic blade tools. These tools were designed for universal use by either left- or right-handed users. Other tools in this category include those with the slider on top of the handle, such as our metal-handle utility knives.

Tools That Easily Convert for Left-Handed Use

Some of our tools are easily converted from right-handed to left-handed use by a simple, convenient blade reorientation. No special tools are needed and these blade reorientations are very easy to perform. You just remove and flip the blade, which puts the tool’s operating mechanism and its blade edge on the correct side for a left-handed user.

One of these tools is the 10558 Smart-Retracting Utility Knife. This graphic illustrates the simple type of blade reorientation used in Slice tools:
