About CPM-S110V:
CPM S110V blade steel is produced using a CPM - Crucible Particle Metallurgy process developed by Crucible Industries of Solvay, New York, U.S.A.

What differentiates CPM S110V from other blade steels is its volume of vanadium-rich (9.0%) and niobium-rich (3.0%) alloys which classify it as a martensitic stainless tool steel. Crucible’s powdered metal process creates uniform carbide distribution of the steel’s components throughout the blade for superior wear resistance, toughness and corrosion protection. These are positive performance characteristics highly desired in state-of-the-art exotic blade steels.

What is the Mule Team:
For those of you unfamiliar with our Mule Team Project, it is unique to Spyderco. In-house we call knife samples designed and built for testing and evaluation Mules. We know a healthy percentage of knife users are interested in different blade steels and their performance abilities. Running with that, we released an ongoing Mule Team Project. Several times per year we unveil the same single-piece fixed blade patterned knife in a different and exotic blade steel. This lets steel-obsessed knife knuts test, try and use something normally not offered to the industry. Product runs are limited to 600 – 1000 pieces of each steel type depending on foundry requirements.

Mule Blades are leaf-shaped with a sharpened and finished PlainEdge blade but with an unfinished handle providing a do-it-yourself opportunity. The unfinished handle has a series of holes for attaching custom handle scales or for wrapping with para-cord. Each piece is sold without handle scales or a carry sheath focusing the project on the blade steel. This opens endless creative possibilities for the owner to design their own handle scale and carry options.
There is nothing more important than this one day.

I held off buying the kitchen set, because I knew this would be right around the corner after SHOT.

Isn't it a little weird to have a mule after the steel has been in use in production already (not that I'm complaining!)
