Ones that cut metal, especially steel, which needs finer teeth (like a hacksaw) than blades to cut wood or aluminium.

However, are you just cutting exposed nails - use an angle grinder with a 1mm thick disc - or are the nails embedded in wood? In which case the fine toothed metal blade, and the angle grinder, will overheat in the wood.

Please explain.

and if they are old fashioned cut nails then theres little chance of anything touching them in a multi tool in my experience

yes the metal blades will do it but can be an expensive slow task in some situations

sometimes I may have to adjust a stud wall that has been misplaced and i thought if i had the correct blade I could cut through the nails in no time make a job much easier.

if you can prize them apart a milimetre or two it will be much easier
dont forget the reach off a blade is around 1 1/2" so may need to cut from both sides

I was using the Bosch wood+ metal blades for most of my loft conversion. They happily chop on through the odd 4" nail if youre sensible with it.
No good for modern screws though.
