Normal after cardboard?

I had a cardboard box that needed to be broke down and I had my yojimbo 2 on me. So I started cutting the cardboard (I cut across the flutes as Evil D says they are called and is the hardest way) it was kinda a test for the yojimbo I wanted to see. After 175 cuts this is what I'm left with. Rendered...

Re: Mule Team 24

Would the maxament be a bad choose considering the elements I look for it to face? Or will I just need to stay on top of maintenance and upkeep of the knife? I'm interested to hear what others think about your question... That said, my Maxamet Mules have not really shown any corrosion so far. But, ...

Re: Mule Team 24

I haven't deer hunted in probably 8 years and have wanted to get back into it (especially when my son gets here and is old enough to go out). I also would like to go camping a little more just to introduce him to the outdoors. I though the mule would be a good candidate to fit numerous of activities...

Re: Mule Team 24

We split 1" - 1 1/4" diameter branches and we did baton the spines to get them started. We did not baton the tip to finish splitting the wood because I was afraid we would break a tip off....this is VERY hard steel after all. Once the knife was in spine-deep we just whacked the other end of the bra...

Re: Mule Team 24

I have a couple of them. I have been using them for cutting steak at dinner while I travel 1 out of every 2 weeks, and I have been using them as my primary blade on hiking and backpacking trips lately as well. I just returned from 3 days backpacking with my daughter about an hour ago...and we both ...

Mule Team 24

Is this generation of the mule still available? If so would you choose the maxament steel over say a paramilitary 2 with S110V? Which would you most likely choose? Thanks.

Re: How much can you reprofile?

Good. I'm glad to hear that. I really appreciate my knives and would like you have them and be able to use them for a long time. I just didn't want to reprofile so much that I'm shortening their life. How often do you guys feel the need to reprofile?

How much can you reprofile?

So I'm sitting here having to reprofile my yojimbo and para2 because of the recent hard work they've had to endure at work the past 3 days. It really rolled some spots really good. So I decided I would reprofile them both to get a good clean apex and have 2 ready to go knives again. But then i thoug...

Re: Cutting rope.

At work the past 2 days we've been putting sediment ponds in on the job site. I don't know if anyone knows what I'm talking about but in those ponds we have to put "baffles" which is this real coarse burlap rope fence. Anyway I've had to cut it a bunch and after about 100ft cutting a straight line ...

Re: Cutting rope.

I was running a highly polished edge (white sharpmaker rods) on the yojimbo. But today I was using my para2 with about a 360 grit backbevel along with a 360 microbevel. How did it do? One of the beauties of the Spyderco Tri-Angle Sharpmaker is that you can stop your sharpening process at the Spyder...

So my birthday isn't till December, but my wife had dropped hints she was getting some new spydercos. Yesterday I had a pretty rough day at work and got home and she decided to give them to me early cause of the day I had. I open up the two wrapped boxes and in the first one is a yojimbo2! I was so ...
