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.


  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.
