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 cleaneror a straight screwdriver tip.
The Classic SD models contain the ScrewDriver-tip.
A large textured file-surface version is also currently (2017) 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. In 2018, this nail file may have been replaced by a new, crosscut design.
On larger 91mm knives the fine-side of some versions of the metal crosscut file can also be used as a nail-file.
