Sal, Initially Mule project was very promising - like testing ground for new steels. But in real life among all Mules only CPM S35VN (#6), Cobalt Special (#9), CTS-BD1 (#10) are actually new steels introduced by Mule project. Somehow two Mules happen to be made out of steel not interesting to anyone...

Nozh, Mule Teams are an anolmoly to regular production. We try to squeeze them in. No two are the same and each run is an entirely new project. It is a real PITA to do. It does not mean that we have no quality control. You are being irrational. We have two options; We can deal with the issue, which...

This is not one little mistake as I already mentioned several time. This mistake should not go to customers, if at least one blade got tested. Those Mules were sold to for few weeks, until failure in HT was found I assume by one of the customers. Conclusion - not single blade was tested inside Spyde...

Well, I was talking about Spyderco quality control. It looks like this issue trigger quite a bit of people do "their best" to show loyalty to Spyderco. But question still remain - Does Spyderco have any quality control, or it is substituted with hope that most time it will be OK (which is not workin...

Nozh, what are you looking for at this point? Sal apologized and admitted there was a mistake. Weren't you already banned from bladeforums for this sort of nonsense? I was was banned from bladeforums because of my edge retention testing which show real value of steel. Official reason for ban by Bas...

Hi Nozh, As I said, it was Spyderco's fault. I do not believe that I indicated otherwise. Actually it was a computer glitch in the heat treating schedule and an overworked, but excellent scheduler didn't notice the glitch. I cannot guarantee that we will never make another mistake. I assure you, we...

Everyone makes mistakes but how you handle the mistake is what truly shows your character. With a sprint like the mule its the first time working with a new steel. There's a chance some were heat treated perfectly and others weren't but spyderco is doing their best to rectify the problem. Call me a...

...What we can guarantee is that we will thoroughly test the MT12P after re-heat treating prior to any re-release. Why this was not done first time? It can save time and money for customers working on that knife and your effort on recall. I am not quite happy to know that you did not test it on the...

I didn't repeat an attack. I provided a concise reference to the historical event for those who were unfamiliar with it. In doing so, I preserved the salient elements of your post that were relevant to the topic at hand. Since the redacted portion of your post violated the rules of the forum, I sho...

Vassili: Your post #149 expressed your feelings on the historically significant effects of Kruschev's contributions. It also managed to do that without profanity. The post that I edited didn't do that. That's why it was edited. Had you abided by the forum rules in your first post, there wouldn't ha...

Hey! You do have a sense of humor! That actually made me laugh out loud! If you were to use the "Clinton-Lewinsky bang" comeback in such a way, I would have to admit that your retort was well played, give you a hearty congratulations on your wit and humor, and move on. Life's too short to let such ...

Vassili, Maybe it is a language barrier issue, but Michael Janich did not repeat the shoe banging comment to your face. When he edited your post for content, he removed the swearing and political discussion portions. He then summarized what he removed. The word "gist" means: summary or quick recap....

There is a difference between disagreement on steel performance, testing metodology, sharpening, level of expertise etc. Some people may not like other people opinion or position. But we should not cross the line and bring national origin, sex or color of hair as an argument or way to hurt someone y...

Dear Vassili: It's unfortunate that you considered the "shoe banging" reference an insult to your Russian heritage. However, compared to the inflammatory tone of your posts, it was a very innocuous comment. I chose to delete a portion of your post because it was overtly offensive and also included ...

Vassili, it was stated that S30V has a rougher edge than ZDP-189 due to the microscopic makeup of the steel. Do you agree with this, or not? I trust you have a lot of experience with both steels, so am genuinely interested in your understanding. Please, excuse my English - I hope ChrisR translate i...
