  1. In 2010 Victorinox introduced the Nomad with new injection moulded red and black scales as part of its Grip Series (Model: 0.8351.C). These scales do not contain the toothpick or tweezer tools.
  2. In 2011 Victorinox introduced the Nomad with dual-density scales and the one-hand-opening combo-edged blade (Model: 0.8351.MWC).
  3. In 2011 Victorinox also introduced a one-handed partially serrated blade in the original Nomad with black Nylon scales which includes the toothpick and tweezer tools (Model: 0.8353.MW3).
  4. The Garant is a variation of the Nomad created for the German Hoffman tool company.
  5. From 2015 Victorinox made special scales on standard knives for the Ukraine Ukraine Edition.


According to several sources the one-hand opening model 0.8351.MWC was discontinued in North America as of December 2013.

From 2017 Victorinox only produced liner-locking 111mm models. The slide-locking Picnicker which had an equivalent toolset to the Nomad was retired. The Nomad with its liner-locking tool configuration, became the new Picnicker and the Nomad name was retired. Some models of the Nomad were fully retired.
Note: Both models had been available prior to 2017.
