Here's my nailcare version.  I carry it as part of my work edc.  Love that glass nail file.  Plus it has all the scale tools I lack by carrying my TiRogue or MechaRogue.

One never knows, therefore I carry two -

one in my wallet

(Image removed from quote.)

and another one in my small first aid kit

(Image removed from quote.)

What an extremely good idea to carry one in a first aid pouch!! Very annoying that I didn't figure it out myself :-\
Anyway, I must have one now. Thanks!

I airtraveled with my Nailcare Swisscard  (and Wenger Traveler) with no problem. I was surprised to find a complimentary sewing kit in card format at the Jumeirah Hotel, Abu Dhabi, UAE.
I like it and thought it is worth posting.



I could post to any kind of forum with things I saw here. These people are insanely rich and they like to show it. This petrified wood stone is rare and very expensive. They simply used hundreds of square meters of it and myriads of marble, granite, alabaster, everything.

You should see it live, under natural light. The same goes for the opal floors. I can’t capture the play of light rays.

I received a Swiss card as a gift about 25 years ago. I do not use it often; I generally carry a Vic Huntsman or Ranger. When I had found the Swiss card useful when I was flying and only taking a carry on bag. I would slip out the blade and still have the scissors, nail file, screw driver, toothpick, tweezers, etc. with me. Over the years I have found it to be quite useful on these trips.

I thought the first Swisscards were made in 1997?   :think:

I carry this for personal grooming sometimes. Only problem I have is forgetting it is in my pocket!
The scissors are very nice! And the ink pen has saved me when not having a pen to sign a check once.
Anyone else use the SwissCard?
Note: Pic with other SAKs for size reference.

Don't forget to show the pin in the toolset GLBM! - There's one in every model !

@ Jayaman - A mod   ???   - I think that is stretching it a bit   ;)

I've have a couple of Classics and Lites - But not the Nailcare or Quattro
I never saw it as a wallet carry !!

I always used to carry one in my car - Mainly for grooming and the pen was always useful
I found the scissors a little awkward to use at first - But then developed this technique to use them 
- Normally your forefinger is in the loop but I put my little finger in there - It works really well

I now have a Wenger 17 in the car - But I need to start again with the Swisscard

Hey you folks who carry a bladeless one for air travel - I thought scissors got confiscated too - Rules seem to vary so much!

Hey
Did anyone notice this variation in the SwissCard blade?   ???

The older one is at the top - The blade is shaped like a regular SAK blade
- It looks like they just used the same blade as the Executive  - Everything lines up even the hole is in the right place
Except ...... The Executive blade is quite a bit thicker.

Then it looks like later they developed a completely custom blade for the SwissCard - also with the sharp edge on the other side

Knowing Vic they always do things for a reason :)
Any thoughts/theories on what has been gong on here anyone ???

You are probably correct. I know that I received it in the 1990's; I may have thought that it was earlier than it actually was.

Must be a SwissCard Day for me today...

This morning I used the tweezer from my SwissCard Lite to remove a thorn from my index finger... Also used the magnifier to locate and magnify the thorn.

Got home this evening, and the money clip I ordered arrived... got it out of curiosity... stuck it on a quattro

The glass file of my Nailcare broke in two pieces. Reasonable, since I am seating on it everyday. I still use the removable half, but I don’t know how would I remove the stuck half if I decide to. Some thin cracks around the scissors are visible.
But by carrying it everyday in my left back pocket I already used most of the tools a lot. I don’t mind some urban war wounds.

I also broke the file on mine   :facepalm:

but I was able to find a normal "carton + grit paper glued onto it" one that fits perfectly and can  bend, being much less rigid than the glass one

Thought this would be a good air travel option until I sat on it. Went back to the Jetsetter.  :salute:

Yes, it seems that it fits better inside a woman's purse than under a man's smurf.

After suffering 200 pounds of flesh and bones a lot of times on it, you can see some hair-like cracks here and there. But it still works, with paper file in place of the glass (easily replaced in every Hotel room of the globe) and I’m a happy customer.

They seem to work well, even when they have started forming cracks. Maybe look into laminating the outside of it to keep the stress cracks from getting worse?

I've been looking into Swisscards for some time, as I planned to get my mother an Explorer, but her nails can't really handle opening SAKs for some reason.

 I planned for scissors and a magnifier as they could help her at work and otherwise as a nurse neat cuts are needed and you'll see, or rather not see a lot of important small text.

Anyway it seems the Nailcare could be the answer, even neatly fitting her phone case to always be available. I just don't know if she'd like the concept of that tool either, and I wouldn't like to pay the rather high price for a new one for just a test.

But for now I've bid on a cheap Quattro to add to my collection and as a test run, if she likes it and can use it I could buy the Nailcare without doubts about about reception.

The Swisscard Nailcare would be a good choice for your mom... the nail file is brittle and can easily break-off... These I heard from guys that put them in their wallets... But in a purse pocket should be no problem...

Another option is the Lite version...
