Years ago the BSA distributed crooked knives. The early version had aluminum handles, the later, plastic - I have both. These have a curved blade, right and left hand cut and a straight blade all about 3" long.

I have a couple more: a classic Schrade (USA) Barlow and a Victorinox Hiker (with a saw). The small saws on these knives are primarilly used to cut 90 degree corners and slots.

Which one(s) I carry depend on what I plan to do.
