Count me in! Honestly Sal could make a MuleTeam of glitter Damascus from 1980's prom dresses and I'd still want one.
I have just the handle material for this one then :winking-tongue
Do tell!

This will be such an interesting release. The entire extent of info I could find on SRS13 is basically already reposted in this thread. Just short blurbs in chef's knife forums. I only own one laminated knife and I never beat the heck out of it, might grab one of these mules for that purpose.

Looking at that upcoming Urban in Damasteel, I'd love to see a Damasteel mule, but I bet it would be a bank breaker. Damasteel is kind of ridiculously pricey. I've looked at building some knives out of it to gift to family, and it's not very feasible.

Yes would love to see some DC18N Damasteel. That would finally give us a Spyderco with Vanax!

Not a lot of discussion of SRS13 that I could find, but here are some snippets:

“Developed by Nachi-Fujikoshi, SRS13 steel is a powder metallurgy stainless steel, which can be heat treated to HRC64…The steel is like a tougher version of SG2…sometimes compared with SRS15, HAP40, SG2, and ZDP189…1.3% Carbon, 13% Cr, 2.7% Moly, 1.7% Tungsten, 1.5% Vanadium… used as a core for higher end laminated steel kitchen knives."

I'm a little curious why a stainless steel would need the lamination, unless it's very brittle, in which case, what's it doing in the kitchen where one can hit a bone? The explanation I've seen is that a thin core makes a culinary knife easier to sharpen. OK, but with my diamond stones, I don't have trouble sharpening any steel...so that doesn't really apply to knife knuts like us.

Wish I could have found Catra or toughness info, but could not find either.

Hi Bolster,

That's why we go through "All of this fuss & bother", so you can taste it yourself.

DC18N is even more expensive, unfortunately.

For example, here's a piece that's roughly 1.5" by 12" for about $550: https://www.artisansupplies.com.au/prod ... 5-x-357mm/

But I agree that I'd rather see DC18N. Someday I'll break down and buy some and build some things for myself, but I'm not there yet. With materials that expensive you want to have a very high level of skill to do them justice.

Ouch, that's a lot. Guess we might be limited to just Vanax. That price makes me think of the Phil Wilson BBB video where Phil didn't use full tang on the expensive/rare stuff.

Kitchen knife Mule….Almost needs a hidden tang :smlling-eyes

This!

Would love to add this to kitchen knives (San Mai blue#2, super blue, and white #1). Can't wait to compare to these classics. I suspect superiority, but only time in the kitchen will tell.

Will also be an interesting blade geometry for kitchen tasks. Similar to a ko-deba, which I don't have.

Since I'm still waiting on my Magnacut mules, I might use this next one instead to make a kitchen knife for my father ! Would be more classy ^^ And I'd get some cool feedback comparing MT35P and MT32P for food prep.

Ramonade: any clue when the release day is announced? I’ve got the money set aside and everything but I’m new to the Mule Team Game (this would be my first), and these scales and sheath I got in an online holiday sale are basically useless without a blade lol. And tips would be much appreciated!

Just keep an eye on the forums. They always start a new thread with the release date and time, usually a week or two in advance. Then just make sure you are logged in a few minutes ahead of the release time and hopefully the website doesn't crash.

Hello! I'm new to the forum. How fast do these Mules sell out? Any particular day and time they get released on the website? Thanks.
Matt
