The blade is called a Wharncliffe, named for James Archibald Stuart-Wortley-Mackenzie, 1st Baron Wharncliffe (1776–1845) by Joseph Rodgers Cutlery Company of Sheffield, England as he was a patron and supporter of the Sheffield cutlery industry.

Why not talk to Ron Lake and built his version of the Rear Lock, i.e. Patent #3783509. I am sure that Spyderco and the Taichung factory would due this collaboration justice.

Just curious, besides your knife, what other tools do you regularly take-apart to clean? Guns? Power Tools? Fishing Reels? Wristwatch? And if so, what do you do when you loose or damage a part? Why was disassembly necessary to clean your Southard? Do you feel that it is Spyderco's obligation to prov...

Switch off with each deer/trip. That way you can test the true potential of each steel which is the purpose of the Mule series. I am sure you will discover that both will be exceptional. Report back and let us know how each preformed in this 'real world' testing.

It is well worth the read ... once a day for a week, then once a week for a month, and then once a month for a year. The knowledge you gain will be far more practical and insightful that the same time spent reading personal views, half truths, and innuendo.

Hi Brian, It's not beyond possibility. What steel do you think should be the "Standard" Mule team? Anyone else interested? sal Hi Sal: As I suggest in my original thread, VG-10 steel would be preferred, if you want to make the blade in Japan or Taiwan, or S30V, if you want to make it in Golden.
