Thanks, nice review! the Z-wear is a great overall option as a mix of edge retention and toughness. If more people were used to/comfortable with high carbon (non-stainless) steels I think it would be very popular, especially when they realized it's basically Cruwear.
Thank you, defenestrate!
Of course it's not stainless, but it's really a very good and balanced steel!

Sharing with you my experience with the paracord Mule handle wrapping.
Removed the G10 scales and wrapped my Z-Wear Mule handle with Olive Drab paracord.
There are lots of paracord handle wrapping techniques on the forum and on the net in general. I chose this one I saw on YouTube. It creates texture, a bit of thickness and looks quite interesting.
I like the result so far.

And I also decided to finish the wrapping with a wrist lanyard-loop.

What do you guys think? :thinking

Paracord actually feels pretty nice on these. At some point, I’m sure I’ll end up getting some scales but in the meantime, you could definitely do a lot worse.

Have you had a chance to compare them much?

Not yet. I use Z-wear and MagnaCut wasn't used yet. But I noticed that factory sharpeness on the Magnacut Mule was much duller than on the Z-wear one. I guess it's just that factory edge thing, it's always random/different and doesn't say anything about the steel properties)
