It's an Explorer WITH A WOODSAW!

What more needs to be said about this awesome SAK except it's so rare I had to make mine from a Champ.

I'm in!  I was going to join with the caveat that I modded mine from a SwissChamp, but you'd mentioned before that yours was also a mod :)

Mags, it just dawned on me that your Woodsman is just a fish scaler away from a Marly Outdoorsman.

That Woodsman has a great toolset!!!  :tu:

I gave the fishscaler from the champ I used to mod this from to Hiraethus - he'll do anything for a fish scaler.

Can I join with a modeler (woodsmans cousin)metal saw instead of woodsaw? It could be called the urban woodsman for this thread!
A lame attempt I know but there it is. :salute:

I'm in ....

And I can join this club with two Vic Woodsmen.
Woodsman was the former name for the Huntsman - So this old beauty also qualifies me for this club I hope!!

As a lifelong Huntsman user and a recent convert to the mag/Phillips layer - The modern Woodsman is a great tool for me.
Definitely agree with Luna Knife that these should still be in production.

I think it would also be good with a metal file layer too. Not sure if that is an official model.

Picked this up last year off the bay - almost 'by accident'  :D - for a very reasonable price - so was very chuffed

It also has the very nice Vic piccie on the handles, which I have seen around in a few places
But would really like to know the origin/meaning of the piccie - Can anyone help?

Huntsman/Woodsman variation
http://www.sakwiki.com/ti...i-index.php?page=Huntsman

Hi SAK Guy
I was going to say this was not a Woodsman - As it was not old enough - Eg look at mine above.  :)
However I checked the wiki and it looks like no tp/tw means it is a Woodsman.

It gets very confusing when Vic re-use names - eh !!  ???

Here are five of the seven that I have - all real, no mods. Not shown here are one from c. 1981 and a "left-handed" (i.e. scissors and phillips/mag layers switched) model from c. 1985.

Huntsman that top one is lush!

Why is this model so rare? The only original ones so far are jazzbass' and Huntsmans and the rest are mods.

OK guys, I have two brand new Explores with woodsaw for sale. They are being sold in Mexico as Fathers' day specials, complete with pouch.  I can post actual photos on friday. Until then this promo picture is going to have to do. https://www.facebook.com/...10153502114700921/?type=1

US$55.00 plus shipping each. I'll be in NYC next week so I can post them then from there. I guess shipping would be arround $6.00 but I'm not sure.

Who's interested?

Thanks M - It is certainly one of my favourites in my wee collection!!

I came across it almost by accident on the bay, it was local to Oz - so no massive postage costs and was a great price.
One of those ebay purchases that makes up for all the crazy ones I have done  :o

When it arrived it was in excellent condition, just a tiny, tiny dent on the mb which I hammered out a little, it's not really noticeable now.

I dated mine between 92 (Hook, scissors w rivet) and 04 Old mag glass
- But not sure when they stopped making this model - so could be older
Fraid my dating is not as accurate as JBs

I love the logo on the scales

I have used it a bit - But it's tempting not to - to keep it in its pristine condition.

PS. Wow - Just seen Ebareena's post whilst writing this - That sounds like a good deal to me!! Even personal delivery!!
