I’m a definitely a fan of the multi-function file and think it often makes more sense that the wood saw if you have to choose between them but you can’t argue with sales and the Huntsman has been one of the top selling models in the range pretty much forever I imagine. Wonder what the proportion difference is between that and Mountaineer sales?
Don’t get me me wrong I love the wood saw - it feels more dangerous than the actual blade to me and perhaps people like the aggressive and functional nature of it in such as small format?
For me edc should at least have a file and a cap lifter of a some sort and a blade even if it’s small - everything else is a bonus. The Manager is a genius construction in my book and always have one on my keychain.
I also put this 91mm ‘Sportsman X’ together recently which is getting a lot of pocket time...yes I cut an orange peeler into the can opener!
