Bought this thinking it was an explorer. Colour me surprised! Cost next to nothing and was a bit rough round the edges but cleaned up real nice. New plus scales but kept it trad red.
Mistaken items (anything) can be a great surprise and bring a smile to ones face  :iagree:

Hello, All!

New member and first post. Until about a year ago, I was the owner of a Woodsman (no T&T, so not a Huntsman) that my Grandpa had given me as a Christmas present as a teenager in the 1970s. With many other tools at home, it had become my travel knife and had gone on every trip that required me to pack a suitcase since then. And then one day last year, it was no longer in my travel kit and it has not shown up since. Needless to say, I've been pretty bummed since.

I recently retired, so together with the COVID event, I've got plenty of time on my hands. So, the other day I decided to try to find a replacement for my old Woodsman. Which quickly led me to this forum and this thread. Though I used the knife a lot, I honestly can't remember if it had a clipped small blade and how many turns the corkscrew had (I do distinctly remember that the corkscrew was fluted). I suspect "no" and "4" are the answers, but the dating of that version doesn't quite line up with my memory of when Grandpa gave it to me (though that is fuzzy, too). So, I may have to develop a collection of the Woodsman varieties to make sure I've got the right one. ;) Which could lead to a similar collection of the Huntsman. ::) Which could lead to...I don't need to tell any of you what a slippery slope it is, do I?

I've got lots of questions about maintenance, restoration, mods, and such, but I'll search the forum first before badgering you all with them. If I can't find answers, you'll be hearing from me. And, assuming the Woodsman collection does develop (my wife might have some opinions I'll need to listen to), I'll post the progress. In fact, I have a couple of knives headed my way already which may be the start. :D

 :rofl:

Welcome!

I’m sorry about your loss...I certainly hope it is found...and that you continue your journey with us down the slippery slope!   :)

And I agree with Barry.  Ask away. I’m curious about your thoughts.

Do you also have a tighter year range than the ‘70s? Lots of changes through that decade perhaps more than any other.

Hi Mate - Welcome to the forum - So sorry to hear you lost your favourite SAK - That hurts  :(

- You will find anything you need to know about SAKs: models, history, dating, restoring, modding etc etc here
We have truly amazing members - Who really do know everything about SAKs!

Thanks for checking the forum boards first for your queries - Make sure you check the modding board and stickies - As there is a wealth of info there

We do not have strict (in fact any) rules about asking questions that have been asked before - So if you don't find the information after a bit of a search, please feel free to ask
Please also note the Woodsman is one of those names that Victorinox has used several times. There are at least three!  :facepalm:
- The old 'Huntsman' Woodsman - which it sounds like you had

- And an Alox Woodsman - See here: https://sakwiki.com/tiki-index.php?page=Woodsman

My first SAK. Love the Woodsman... turns one of the best EDCs into one of the best outdoors/camping SAKs.






Sometimes I wonder why it isn't available anymore.

Nice pics.  The Woodsman is such a great knife.

It certainly is!  I actually purchased a new in box Woodsman destined for the Mexican market from a seller on the Bay a couple years ago.  He's located in Quebec if I remember right. 

That's a gorgeous one you have!

Thanks!  :cheers:

I find the scale material is quite different from the newer ones... I can't tell if it's just aged or if the material is different than it was 20 years ago.

I think the older ones are thicker.  The whole feel of the older ones is different.  I like vintage better!

Not carried my Woodsman in ages and decided to put it in my pocket last night.

I’m loving all the mag layer porn at the moment!! Great toolset on this. I put together one with both saws but just took it apart again to make Yeoman!
