We called the hooked knives banana blades. I saw one cooked one time, the mechanic tagged out the wrong shuttle car and cut into a live DC cable. The blade was all but disentergrated. You’ll taste your teeth fillings for a day or two after an experience like that.

Owned a lot of Barlow's. I don't think I knew a kid that didn't carry a Barlow. And OMG we carried them to school.
