Longnail is a Charm in Hollow Knight. It increases the range of the Nail by 15%.

Usefulness

It is useful for keeping distance from more dangerous enemies and for performing safer Nail-bounces.

While it has a slightly shorter range than the Mark of Pride Charm, it is acquired with less challenge and has a lower Notch cost. In most normal combat, the range difference is negligible.

It does not affect the range of Nail Arts or Grubberfly's Elegy.
