Yep...spade or an old large kitchen knife.

A good utility knife.

If I got a section that takes the length of a roll, but half the width, then I keep it rolled up like a sheet of dough and use a tree pruning saw and cut it to width. Saves the hassle of trying to cut the length of the roll on the ground with a knife.
