    I have been a fan of the Huntsman model since the mid '80s. As I understand it, the Fieldmaster is just one tool option different from my old favorite.
    I am looking forward to getting to know one another. 2018_0124_21344600.jpg 2018_0124_21343500.jpg

    I have one, but with the plain red scales. I like mine. I do believe the one handed Trekker is the same just minus the scissors and bigger.

    I have had my eye on the Trekker for a long time, as well. It is only a matter of time before it joins the ranks.

    The trekker has just a few less tools and a locking blade. I have a huntsman and love it but really want a fieldmaster badly...and a trekker lol

    I have many SAKs. I don't know how many. The only duplicate is the Fieldmaster. I have two of those. I don't need two, but I like it enough to fear its loss. If it's ever discontinued, I'll buy another, just to be sure. :D

    I still have a Huntsman that I bought as a kid more than 30 years ago.

    I just bought my 12 year old daughter a Fieldmaster, which I gave to her on a recent father-daughter camping trip.

    I have both. Had two Huntsmen, and gave one away (won by @TMAC). The other one now resides in NY, so I have one when I go visit, without having to deal with TSA's employees.

    This was my GAW Huntsman. Note the corkscrew.

    and this is my Fieldmaster. I won it in a giveaway by @redneck17 several years ago. Still use it every trip. He somehow got it with yellow scales. Note the Phillips screwdriver (vs the Huntsman's corkscrew).

    I never thought I would use the corkscrew on my Huntsman. It turned out to be an excellent fid for stubborn knots.
    The scissors gets used the most. It has trimmed more fingernails than anything else.

    I carry a Fieldmaster in my field bag and sometimes swap it out with the farmer for EDC. Great knife! I like the scales on yours, looks great.

    Fieldmaster is my favorite. I'd much rather have a screwdriver than a bottle opener. I haven't ever had a need to open a bottle of wine in the woods. Nice score; nice scales.
