Anything is possible. But there must be enough demand so we don't lose our shirts creating the Piece.

Speaking of shirts ... how about a Mule Team T-shirt (or bandana)? That would be kinda cool and quirky... and fun!

Forum Knife 2020 - No Holds Barred!!!

There have been a couple recent threads regarding an upcoming Forum 2020 knife with some predetermined choices to choose from... I thought it would be fun to see where this would go if the arena was left wide open, sorta a "no holds barred" scenario ... so let your imagination run free, take your be...

Re: CPM SPY27 steel

It will differentiate the product from the competitors' product. I'm actually surprised all the name brand knife makers don't have a proprietary steel already and that it didn't happen some time ago. "Gotta get me some of that SPY27" ... nope Buck don't have it, nope BM don't have it, nope ZT don't ...

Re: Reveal 4, What's your favorite release?

WOW!!! I think Spyderco knocked this one out of the park for Spydie lovers!!!!

Looking forward to getting my hand around the new texture on the PM2 and a S45VN blade in the herd...

I'm likely good for a the Chaparral!

Re: Forum knife 2020 - model poll

I have the forum PM2 and a forum Native. Nothing here is getting me too excited so i may be over forum knives. Was thinking the Native Chief, then started thinking the Para 3, and now I'm thinking maybe the Lil Native in 4V. So I voted Lil Native, but still would not likely be interested. Forum name...

Re: Merry Christmas! Paramilitary II in Maxamet dropping all over the place

Maxamet PM2 Chapter Four, "Arrived Jan 2 and now in-hand..." I have a hard time spending +$200 on a folder, just my personal comfort zone, so this purchase was stretching my envelope. Now that I have it in hand I am feeling no regrets! It's a PM2 so everything that can be said has been said... and m...

Re: Change in price of Spydercos in 2020?

I just got home from taking myself, two teenagers, and two kids to the movies. With popcorn, a couple hot dogs, and two bottles of water, this 2-hour outing cost me $90! Kinda put an $84 Delica into perspective for me. Two hours of entertainment and snacks cost more than a well-made tool that'll la...

Re: Mule Team

I am noticing these are mostly out of stock!!! Doesn't look like the remaining model has been adjusted for 2020 pricing. No sign of them in the 2020 product guide but don't think they ever were in the catalogs. Fixed blade lovers have to be crying; this was a great one!!!! :confused:

Wow ... that happened quick! Thought there would be a little time to slip in a couple more purchases before the hikes showed up at all the dealers. Was planning to slow down on knife collecting this year anyways ... but higher prices and no increase in my annual income makes it no longer a choice. :...

Re: CTS BD1N edge retention

I've had a UK PK with BD1N for a few months. It seems a little on the soft side to me. Sharpens and touches up easy. I've experienced more edge roll/burr with it than any other knife I use ... which is mostly delica vg-10 and buck 420 and assorted kitchen stainless. I took it to 30 degrees with the ...

Re: 2020 reveal predictions?

My first prediction was that it would be called Reveal 1 2020. It isn't; it is called Reveal 4* so obviously i'm not too good at this prediction stuff. I suspect something fun with the fixed blades ... so I'm predicting (better read as guessing and not based on anything) a plain edge Jumpmaster in L...
