Wenger Small Blade

Some standard-sized Wenger Swiss Army knives include a 38mm (1 5/8") small blade, in addition to the larger main blade. However, Wenger knives are more likely to have a nail file in the same slot as the main blade. This is one of the biggest differences between the two brands of Swiss Army knives.

WARNING: The small blade on all types of Wenger Swiss Army knife is a non-locking blade. If you push too hard in the wrong direction, the blade will close into the body (possibly endangering fingers).

Uses: The small blade has a sharp edge that will cut or slice wood, plastic, and other soft materials. You can even use it on soft metals like aluminum, although it will dull the edge more quickly.
On the two-blade knives, many people like to keep one blade sharp and the other duller. That way you can use one blade for dirty work like cutting weed roots, without losing a finely-honed edge.
