I have wondered if the moderately useless nail file could be re-profiled into a second blade. Has anyone tried this? Is the nail file the same steel as the blade?

Here's a video of Laura Kampf (sponsored by Leatherman) repurposing an existing tool to take replaceable craft blades.

Take a look at the Swiss MiniChamp. It uses the same scales as the Classic with several more layers.

I have a Havalon Piranta which is a folder that uses 60XT scalpel blades. Crazy sharp and the blades are pretty cheap to replace.
Just be very careful when changing out the blades. I usually use a pair of pliers.
