VoodooChild, I think Cruwear and LC200n have great properties that make those steels great fixed blade knives.
And regarding s45vn, JRinFl said it "...knife collectors are gonna collect."
Also, to standy99-don't you mean there's no money in "selling" what's not hot?
I completely agree, which is why there are several fixed blades that you can get those steels in. Or you can even try making your own knife with those "more reasonable" steels.
I was saying, for me, Im not jumping on the mules in more "normal" steels. I would personally rather have a different design, or a custom, or even attempt to make my own knife.
However when it comes to maxamet/zmax and more exotic stuff, the mules make a lot more sense to me. No other production fixed blades have it, it would be a pain to try to make one yourself, a custom guy is going to charge a lot, and you can get a mule from spyderco for cheap.
I wasnt knocking cruwear or lc200n as fixed blade steels, theyre amazing for that. I was just saying I dont get the "hype" of getting a mule in a more "normal" steels when there are other options with those steels.
