Default Swiss Army knife decision.

So I'm trying to decide on a Swiss Army knife to buy and I'm torn between the Victorinox Hunstman and Mountaineer. They're both about the same thing and they have the tools I want (scissors, corkscrew, awl etc.), but the Mountaineer has a file and the Huntsman has a saw. What do you guys think would be more useful in everyday use?

Flip a coin

Heads you get the one with the file

Tails you get the one with the saw

I guess it depends on what you do. If you're outdoors a lot, you might want to go with the saw. I've been packing multi-tools for 15 years, none of which have had a saw, and I've never felt lacking. I have used the file a lot though.

I have had to use the saw on my Swiss Army knife before, and it was not very effective. I used the toothpick and ink pen more than anything, though
