Default A question for knife experts

When I was a student, I bought a handy little knife, very cheaply. It was sold as a boning knife. The stainless blade was about 10cm long, with parallel sides and a triangular tip. The blade's cross-section was like a thin lozenge, and the entire edge was serrated.

I used it happily till last week for all sorts of stuff, but then it vanished. I guess it went to the dump in a rubbish sack or got buried in the compost heap or stolen by magpies.

I want to replace it, but cannot find anything like it - boning knives these days seem to be long strong-spined single-edge steel blades and quite costly!

Does anyone know what I'm on about and what I should be Googling for?
