scie ou lame scie (sur outil multi-fonctions)


Explanation:
J'imagine comme Zaphod une lame en dents de scie.
Dans les sports de glisse on utilise souvent des outils multifonction comportant plusieurs lames ou outils (pince, tournevis...), qui tiennent dans la poche et permettent de réparer rapidement tous les petits ennuis de fixation des skis ou snowboards des "riders" après une descente un peu "radicale"...
