Re: Please remove MAP pricing forever!

Remove MAP pricing and all the smaller dealers disappear and all the bigger dealers put prices up after the smaller dealers are gone. Removing MAP can also have brands devalued if their products are sold below their worth. Look at Apple it’s pretty much MAP world wide. There are benefits of MAP…. Al...

Re: Does your Spyderco knife passion depend on acquiring more?

There will always be the need for more knives the minute a company comes up with the one knife that does everything… If I’m on the boat I want a Salt. If I’m on the same boat out crabbing I want a salt serrated. Cutting crab pot lines when you pull up a Saltwater crocodile that’s tangled in your lin...

Re: M398 mules have arrived

I got mine the other day. Today I had the worst time getting the handles on, the bottom hole on the mule was a tad tight, just the tiniest bit. Barrel would sink flush one way, not go in on the other side. I don’t have a drill press, a round file did nothing to the temper. I did sand/file down the ...

Having seen and held the above knife…..I’m down for one. Great to hear the story of how it became to the current model. Such a beautiful knife and a great maker and a nice guy.

Interesting that it is still available. I'm going to compare it with my PD1- a knife no one bought but everyone loves cruwear. Go figure.
Put a Micarta handle on a PD1 and probably the most used of my Mules.

Re: Does your Spyderco knife passion depend on acquiring more?

Slowed down on folders and more into fixed blades now. More fixed blades made by Spyderco in the latest steels would drain my wallet…luck there isn’t many lately. Putting handles on mules and trying different materials is my fun at the moment. Spyderco has more than enough Mules out in the last few ...

Re: Blade HQ Delica M4 exclusive

How’s sharpening M4 on the sharpmaker? No issue at all….M4 got a rap for not being easy to sharpen many years ago and it’s one of those things that once one YouTuber says it they all do. Takes a touch longer but it’s a steel that once done holds its edge very well and longer. Have sharpened M4 on b...

Re: Patch Me In

I've purchased at least 1 of every single Mule Team Blade ever offered and 2 of most of them for a total of 57 Mules and MT accessories. How many do I have to buy in order to receive a complimentary Mule Team patch? Start a thread and show us…will help. It’s all about contributing to the new Mule T...

Re: Patch Me In

I haven't seen anyone post a new patch in very long time. Perhaps no one has been deemed patch worthy? Or maybe they don't have anymore patches left? Is there a word count or # of pictures posted to qualify for the patch? Just keep posting and contributing to the Mule community… I received a PM ask...

Re: Get me excited about M398

Hearing hard to sharpen on a lot of newer steels lately….mostly from YouTubers or Instagramer’s that I have never seen use a knife…..As a decent sharpener (ex butcher) who is still waiting for Maxamet to get hard to sharpen….

Re: Making a Kydex Sheath (step-by-step)

To get the fit right, I faffed about with washers for awhile, and finally realized I needed a custom washer about half the thickness of a regular washer. So I made a washer out of a bit of copper shim stock; you can just see it in the slotted area. That custom washer fits BETWEEN the front and the ...
