Nail File


The Nail File is one of the three most common tools on the 58mm range of SAKS (along with the main blade and scissors).
The current Nail File in all frame sizes is created by a textured finish on one side of the tool, which creates a fine/soft cut. The end of the blade can be a pointed Nail Cleaner or straight Screwdriver tip. The Classic SD models contain the ScrewDriver-tip.

Early versions of the 58mm nail file used a standard crosscut file design, and were only available with the cleaner tip. 58mm Crosscut File

An earlier version of the Nail File, prior to YYYY, on 74mm knives had a different dual slotted textured file on one side of the blade and a more standard crosscut file on the opposite side. The crosscut side could be used as a more aggressive nail-file or used as a file of light materials. This design is now discontinued. A large textured file-surface version is also used on 74mm models.

Unlike Wenger, where the nail-file is the regular partner to the main blade on its standard 85mm range, Victorinox usually install a second smaller blade. However a nail file appears on a few of the 84mm models such as the Cadet and Sportsman.

On larger 91mm knives the fine-side of some versions of the metal crosscut file can also be used as a nail-file.
