I watched a video of the rope cutting on the special stand without a base and I wonder if blade geometry/thickness comes more into play because the rope tends to squeeze the blade as the blade passes through. Just a thought. Sure, it is harder to cut for me if blade is thicker or has some coating, ...

I cut my variables down to a min, so that is likely the difference..... And the reason for my consistent results that are repeatable over and over again. ;) And I work within a certain percentage variation along with the fact that I am not trying to score the steels from best to last as that's impo...

Well, what about this theory - Not every Mule is made in Golden, some made by 3rd party unde Spyderco brand by Spyderco specification (as many knives are made by G-Sakai or some other Japanese manufacturers under Spyderco brand). For example Cobalt Special Mule I am quite certain is made in Japan as...

I know what the alloy contents are.... ;) I did try that thing you wanted me to just to see, but it made NO DIFFERENCE in the results as I tried to tell you before, and more than once that the wood isn't abrasive enough to effect the result..... So there is no need to change the way I am doing the ...

CTS 20CP is Carpenters version of S90V... NOT S60V..... CTS 204P is Carpenters vers of Bohler M390... Just correcting a few of the many errors and misinformation in the above post.....

Hi Vassili, Good to see you here. Crucible made another batch of Cruwear and we will be using it in a model soon. Mostly for Joe. We only have two US foundries to work with. What steels, (other than 440V, which met with much resistance) would you like to see? sal From Crucible - nothing really. But...

Vassili, Last you wrote here about current steels you stated Cruwear was on top in your test. Has it changed or are you talking about overall performance and not the specialized testing you have done? Thanks, and yes I still like Cruwear as close to a favorite steel as I can come up with. Joe I am ...

After dumping good steel - CPM S60V and run this CPM S30V scam, Crucible desperate to make at least some steel which can compete modern steels from Carpenter, Bohler or Hitach. So far their best effort CPM M4 - far behind competitors. They try to use PM technology on old steels like 154CM, D2 or M4,...

I feel like I have to post this here even I am boycotting Spyderco for inappropriate comment Sal made earlier. Considering that, I still should not hide the fact that this new Cruwear Mule fixed (and seems like tested properly before going to market) show best result in my edge retention testing. Se...

Hi Nozh, Thought I'd take this to a different thread. The recall thread is to serve another purpose. I've known you on the forums for many years now. I would guess that you are anal retentive (as am I), obsessive / compulsive (as am I) and I think that with your Russian heritge and my Latvian herit...

Might I suggest that those of you continuing to discuss a specific member in this thread just simply stop? To continue on this path is to do the very thing that you want stopped. The rest of this thread should be specific to the MT12P Recall. Please. Thanks, it better be 90 posts late then never...

If this guys super special testing process is so effective why did he waste his time working on a mule that he should have easily been able to identify as defective? This is what I did - I tested it and found poor performanse (same as for CPM S30V which nobody recall for that). Test take day of wor...

nozh, I think you have made your point clear by now. Can we agree to disagree and let it go now? Please, this horse was dead long ago. Thanks, I hope it would be clear for most noisy part of the crowd as well, it looks like they just warming up. However I am not sure you will be able to reason them.

There is obviously a language barrier here, as "respectful" must mean exactly the opposite of what you think it means. You show absolutely no уважение. Sal apologizes to you and you basically crap on his apology. I think what you're trying to say is: nozh2002 не уважает вообще. (Russian provided co...

Wow this thread sure got out of hand.

Thanks, I did not know that. So it should be then:

"...among all Mules only CPM S35VN (#6), CTS-BD1 (#10) are actually new steels introduced by Mule project - 17% of Mules and both have entry level performance..."
