Not sure how I missed this thread.
The Huntsman (small 84mm) is the most expensive SAK I've ever purchased.  I had to pay dearly since it was mint in box.

Lots of expenses in my life right now - awl for the better- but I've seriously cut down El Collection.  Down to only two four-layers if you can believe it!  A Huntsman Plus and Explorer Plus.   I don't think I could go without those two.

It's hard to argue with those two my friend.  If I had to narrow it down to just one, it would probably be a Woodsman, which is a great combo of those two knives.

...added a Fire Fly to the Huntsman for upcoming summer if it ever gets here.
I think I can hide a piece of tinder under the saw, hide the toothpick?  Any suggestions?

I like using waxed jute for tinder. You might be able to put a short strand of waxed jute under the saw. You don't need much to get a fire going.

Or....you could put a thick strand (doubled-up strand) inside the corkscrew.

Yes, you need one now obviously.

The Huntsman comes in a wide range of colors, including woodland, desert, and smurf.

The shirt is an excellent start, but you'll find the real thing even better.  :D

The Huntsman was my first real SAK. I bought it in the mid to late 90s after I lost my first pocket knife, I think a Japanese copy my Great Grandparents bought me for my 6th birthday. I remember it had a fish scaler and the scales were darker red I'm sure. I was quite upset that I'd lost it but I really can't remember it clearly enough now. Up until I started work in 2006 and got a LM Juice the Huntsman had been my only multi tool. It has been abused a fir bit and the blade layer doesn't have a very sound snap any more. I had to replace the scissors spring as I liked to play, flicking them open and listen to the springy noise until it snapped  :oops: I still have the box it came in, a maroon colour, not the silver like they are now.
I bought the blue Huntsman off eBay a few years ago. I actually bid on a Climber, I think the intention I had was to modify the scissors into a Cadet, but I was pleasantly surprised when my Climber came with an added wood saw :tu:. The seller had mislabelled his pre-packed item :dunno:. It is also brand new :woohoo:. I can see all the factory grind marks and the saw still has the fuzzies left from the grinding process, never been used. So I decided it wasn't worth tearing down and have left it as is. While I've now bought other SAKs and multis, the Huntsman will always be the one I like the most  :salute:
