    Oops my deleted comments were on the Choghlans folding saw and not the wire saw. Sorry.

    For years, I used something very similar. It was a wire saw with rings on both ends. Sold in the plumbing supply area of Home Depot, etc. Nothing worked better on a pelvic bone.

    Nowadays, I've gone to what some call the "Indian style" or "gutless field dressing" method for my deer and elk. Completely avoids the whole bladder/anus/pelvic issue altogether.
