I selected "Just the steels I want" and with the next 5 or 6 steel selections already set, I'm very interested in seeing what they all are, I suspect I'll want a few. Of the mules announced, I definitely want the Z-Max the most, as kind of a Maxamet light. I also picked up the SPY27 version to have a stainless blade to play with, I don't feel a huge draw to S45VN, but may pick one up just because it's a nice steel in a very useful format for $50. With the MT28 in hand, paired with the scales and kydex sheath from Spyderco's site, I have to say it seems like near-ideal hunting blade for my preferences.

Looks like it’s a larger “Just the steels I want” crew. With 50% vote so far.

Be interesting to see what the other 3 steels of the 6 that Sal said were already planned.

Hopefully there will be a few steels that aren’t as sought after that will give the people that miss out on the hot steels that sell out quick a chance in on the Mule team community.

I'd like one of each, but given the aftermarket pricing and that I only had a couple earlier ones (both the 9Cr18MoV model before the recent MicroMelt one I got last year), I'd be pretty happy to just try cool steels though as long as I have a decent job, I'd be up for getting each one at time of release. So I put just the steels i want to try, but as I love having lots of different steels, I'd like to try them all. I have other models in a handful of the mule steels but it would be cool to have one of each.

A chef will prefer all of them. Different style of knives would be a great help in making designs when cutting the ingredients thus, increasing the creativity of the food. Besides, it would be also a great display in the kitchen.

I went with (as many as I can get.) A better option for me personally, would be, (which ever mules I can get from SFO, until the money runs out.)
Spyderco: Tenacious G10, Waterway, Pd#1 Mule, S45VN Mule, Para 3 Spy27

Whichever ones I can get. Spyderco doesn't seem to do that many in a year, and they are affordable. The Mules are an incredible bang for your buck. Most American-made (sometimes sharpened and ground, othertimes not) cutlery blanks are around $20 for basic ones, all the way up to close to $100 for others. A Mule, in the latest of steels, and a pretty practical pattern is usually around $50, sometimes more, sometimes less depending on the steel. It's a full-size knife, and factory-made sheaths and hardware are included; so if you're like me, and unsure if you can DIY the sheath and handles, it's there.

Just the steels I want.

If I was living in USA, I would buy way more Mules but living abroad makes them quite expensive. In France we have to pay customs taxes and VAT over the total price (goods + shipping fees) + customs declaration fees.
