I think you would need to step up to the Swiss Champ.
Does such a tool configuration exist without having a mod made?
I think a regular Champion is the closest, but you will have the fish scaler too.
I do have a couple of Champions, but I think they have the older metal saw...I like that current one.
I definitely prefer the new metal saw too......they did make a Champion with the new metal saw before they discontinued it....I have one....it has the plus scales.
Oh! That's a good lead, I have a Champion plus, I'll have to check it for the new file.
Hope you have the one with the new metal saw....if not, you should be able to eventually locate one.

For the 'original' Woodsman, it would be a Mountaineer. Mountaineer Lite comes closest to the new Woodsman, sans Magnifier.
Looked Mountaineer up, but it doesn't have the wood saw.Here's the mod I'm thinking of having made.Start with a Champion Plus w/newer metal file. Have a Compact as a donor tool.Take the Champion apart:Remove fish scaler, small blade, opener layer and back hook.Put in combo tool and hook with nail file material from the Compact.I think that would be a great tool for me. Does anyone see a disadvantage to that mod?
If you're happy with the tool load out, then the only thoughts I have are:The hook w/ nail file seems a little redundant on a knife that has the metal file, which also works fine on nails, but you'd need the donor Compact for the combo tool anyway, so why not?With the Champion Plus apparently discontinued, it might be easier/faster/cheaper to start with a Swiss Champ.
Does anyone see a disadvantage to that mod?
Yes. It's got the combo tool in it.
Thank you for your thoughts. I see your point about the nail file. The one on the hook is less aggressive, so that is why I thought it might be nice to have for my delicate, dainty fingernails. I laugh because my nails are actually robust, milk drinker and all.I have two Champion Plus already that I bought used, but are in great shape, thought I might use one of them....but that discontinued comment does give me pause.
I forgot the link in my last post and according to the sakwiki page it does have the awl.https://sakwiki.com/tiki-index.php?page=Expedition+Lite
Wait, what!!???!! I saved someone from buying a sak!!??!!! How is that even possible in this place??
Wait, I don't want to lose the awl. So the awl is a part of the opener layer, is this correct?
