How about filtering a harmonic with a notch filter?
Or if you want multiple harmonics, try a notch comb-filter.
A notch comb filter can take out all the even harmonics, leaving only
odd harmonics (square wave). It's the frequency domain equivalent of
subtracting two sawtooths to get PWM.

Is there any chance you might lead me to some information on how to
filter harmonics? Obviously low pass filtering will do that, but than
you lose the rest of the information.
Possibly you could attenuate certain harmonics though with a shelf/peak
filter. I can see how that could be done. Than if I want certain
harmonics emphasized I can do it.
A sawtooth has every harmonic in it going down by a factor of 1/n where
n is the harmonic. It's spectrum looks like a curve going down as the
