Re: MT30P - Mule Team Featuring Z-Wear PM - Release Date

Edited... No Z-wear for me. UPS shows it was delivered to me on Aug 29. Spyderco says they got the package returned from UPS with no note as to why. Unfortunately, they sold my knife to somebody else. Checked with UPS. The delivery address they had was for Illinois, not Oregon. So either the tracki...

I’m still waiting. CC charged on the 24th and I am stateside.
Same here. In my experience it's unusual for Spyderco to take this long to ship. Of course Covid has changed things.

Re: Who got a Z-Max?

My bad. I replied to the Z-Max thread accidentally. I was referring to Z-wear. I got my Z-Max and other Mules just fine.

Haven't gotten mine yet. I have an order confirmation and no shipping confirmation. Is Spyderco still shipping them?

Re: Past Mule Teams

Hopeful, the straight spine Mule Team 28 Spy27 turns into a regular production piece. And then nobody'll be interested in it, because it's actually available? (Well, us Mule Team Sixers would be interested, but the rest of the world, ie, the flippers?) The mule team slowed up significantly from ear...

Re: Lost in the Shuffle

In my opinion, the build-quality of these three is on par with Golden, right down to etchings on the tang. Interest post. Agree on the quality. My D'Allara has excellent fit and finish. I'd love a D'allara with the Manix ball bearing lock cage. That round/smooth ball looks tough to actuate with glo...

Re: Mule Team Subscription maybe?

I don't like the idea of a Mule Subscription, it seems to me the mules are out there for folks who want to try a steel on a standard platform, not only for the "gotta catch em all" crowd. For example, I got a MT28, MT29 and MT31, now I'm good for a while until another steel that I'm speci...

Does anyone know how to build a shared spreadsheet that people can add data to?
Sure. Google sheets. Just create the sheet as editable by anybody and share the link. But if anybody can edit it, you get what you get.

Re: Reveal 8 Released!

I appreciate Spyderco’s love for the blue and the red...somethings never change. Especially during these unpopular times. They could easy just be silent and sell knives and sharpeners. Yet they double down on police models and themes. Their public support means a lot. 100%! Could not agree with you...

Re: Past Mule Teams

Hi Kristi,

The issue for me is that the SpydieWiki isn't a wiki. It's now a company web page. The whole point of a wiki is collaborative editing and contribution. Wiki's are often created to fill the information gaps that can't be met without informal collaboration.

Re: Re-examining 9Cr18Mo as an option

Hate to drag up an old thread (*cough* no not really) I just watched a video from Outpost76 testing a couple examples and heat treated properly it seems like a very good steel. Better than any of the imported D2 and rivaling M390 tests. Granted it's cardboard but it looks very promising. I would lo...

Re: Mule Team knives steel hardness testing

There are a few collections of hardness tests out there. One problem seems to be that most people doing the tests don't want to manage the data. Another issue is that it's hard to know when tests are done correctly or done at all. How can we know people aren't fabricating results? I've had ~20 mules...

Re: Past Mule Teams

Kristi, Would it be possible to easily list dates that each went out of stock? Some took years, while others lasted minutes! Thanks, G27 I don't know about the early ones. LC200N, A11, RWL34, PD#1, and B70P were available for a long time. I bought all of these from Spyderco within the last 3 years....
