Yes, a Hackmaster. That's what it's called.

How appropriate.

I have that hacksaw as well. I like it a lot better than most others I've used. I've always wondered why they don't make Spartans anymore?

Bandsaw or sawzall for me.
I had to check today - It's a Ridgid, FWIW. I do still keep it on the van, but it was buried under everything else in the tool bin.
