Re: MT27P - Mule Team Fixed Blade with Micro-Melt® PD#1

The composition is very close to CPM Cruwear, so this should be an excellent choice. I am happy to see this offered.

Re: New EDC Fixed Blade - Suggestions?

My one concern in recommending the Mule Team knives for your consideration is the size of the handle. I have pretty large mitts myself and I would not want the handle on my Mules to be any smaller than it already is. I am totally with you in wishing there was more love and blade steel options for th...

Re: Spyderco Natural G-10 Manix 2 M4 Blade HQ Exclusives

I will opt for the Satin version also, for the same reasons. Living in a relatively dry environment I do not have a need for the DLC coating and in fact don't mind a bit of natural patina on my blades. I also feel the Natural G-10 scales are going to be very attractive.

Re: Can I purchase new screws and back spacers from Spyderco.

Contacting Spyderco Warranty & Repair Department would be the way to find out for sure, but I can understand the time issue with a phone call, which would be the best way to contact them if you could. An email fully explaining the reasons for wanting the parts will get a reply, but please be patient...

Re: New EDC Fixed Blade - Suggestions?

I find my various Mules just so handy for a variety of everyday tasks that I have found this model hard for me to replace for edc. Fortunately I get to try a variety of good blade steels in the Mules, and I am hoping to see CPM REX 121 offered at some future time. I also like the .118" blade thickne...

Re: Spyderco Natural G-10 Manix 2 M4 Blade HQ Exclusives

Website says skeletonized. What a great price!!! The BHQ website description for the Black DLC version does indeed mention Skeletonized Liners, and the description for the Satin version, which was the one I was looking at, does not mention liners at all, so I thought possibly full liners based upon...

Re: Spyderco Natural G-10 Manix 2 M4 Blade HQ Exclusives

I’m assuming it’s skeletonized? That black and jade looks great! At an advertised weight of 5 0z. I would think the liners are not skeletonized. Just a guess, but the full ss liners on the Manix 2 weigh in at 4.9 oz. according to the Spyderco catalog. Personally I like the extra heft and feel of th...

Re: Hygiene and Physical Contact at Social Events?

Being pretty much of a hermit by choice and not being comfortable around large groups, especially folks I don't know, tends to keep me well away from social events of any kind. I am in no way anti-social and have my circle of friends whom I enjoy spending time with, but by and large I don't have a g...

Re: Where Spyderco Knives Fall Short

I have found many Spyderco offerings that meet my needs and preferences regarding handle size to fit my hand well and comfortably, and a blade length that does what I need it to do. Much can be accomplished with a small blade and a bit of ingenuity, but fit in the hand is important to controlling th...

Re: After carrying the UKPK...

I have to agree. After carrying traditional slip joints much of my life, and then "discovering" Spyderco many years ago, I am very much a convert to the pocket clip and one hand opening, (so much easier than opening lockback knives prior to thumb studs or the "Flicket"). Still, I have never owned a ...
