My father in law has a bunch of old tires on the homestead and my wife wants to make some of these:

Now, my issue is that I will need to cut the tires and it's going to take a good, sturdy knife.


I thought maybe a diver's knife would be good because they're thick, heavy, stainless, and can stand up to multiple sharpenings. But I also don't want to spend A lot of money on something that'll be thrown away at the end of the project.

Oh, and she wants to start the project this afternoon. I've even talked her into letting me use her old hair dryer as a heat gun to soften the rubber. So do any oppos have a suggestion for a cheap knife that could be good for cutting tires? I don't want to burn up my jigsaw - it'll gum up all to hell anyway.
