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 cleaneror  a 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.

Earlier versions of the 74mm nail-file, prior to YYYY, 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 for light materials. This design is now discontinued.
A large textured file-surface version is also currently (2017) used on 74mm models.

74mm Nail File Shapes

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 In 2018, this nail file may have been replaced by a new, crosscut design.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.

A nail-file is found on most  Wenger 85mm models. The end of the nail file is a nail cleaner, but is reported to also work well with many Phillips head screws.
