Nail clipping on 12/03/2007 18:06:18 MST Print View

For some reason I have toenails that tend to grow in these freakish spurts, sometimes when I am out for quite a few days. I was wondering if anyone has found a lighter weigh to cut your nails other than nail clippers and using scissors. Ripping them off really is not an option anymore.

Brett,

I take one of those stiff foam backed emery boards and file my toenails every morning before I put on my trail runners. Takes a minute and you're done. You can find them in the cosmetic section of most grocery or drugstores. Wt is about 5-7 gms. Sand paper would also work if your squeamish about the beauty section.

While not lighter in & of itself, it is light, and multi-use: a Gerber nail clip w/ knife & scissors. I can't find them anymore, but I bought mine on ebay. The knife blade sucks, the scissors are just ok, and the nail clippers are great. All in a very small package.

Wenger Swiss Clipper on 12/03/2007 20:10:06 MST Print View

Campmor has these (called the Wenger Swiss Clipper) for $22.99. Scissors, Knife, Nail File, Clippers, Toothpick, and Tweezers in a 1.3oz package. Probably more useful than carrying regular nail clippers and a separate knife.

Tiny scissors works for me on 12/03/2007 22:35:56 MST Print View

The tiny scissors from my Victorinox Swiss Army Classic work just fine for trimming my toenails on trail. I trim just a bit at a time. The knife also has a file. For versatility, it's hard to beat the weight.

a rough rock on 12/03/2007 23:26:57 MST Print View

if they are available, a small rough rock takes down nails quickly, especially if slightly soft from being in boots.
