About CTS B75P:
CTS B75P is a powdered steel produced by Carpenter Steel of Reading, Pennsylvania U.S.A.
Carpenter’s CTS B75P is comparable in elemental composition to BG42 blade steel but is produced using a powdered steel manufacturing process rather cast steel construction. Powdered steel manufacturing renders the ingredients and carbides making up the steel’s structure, more consistent in grain size to each other and homogenize the steel. For the knife user this translates into a high-performance knife steel with exceptional wear and corrosion resistance and long term edge retention. CTS B75P’s hard vanadium carbides further augment its wear resistance and edge retention making it the new knife steel that production knife companies and custom knifemakers are excited to use.

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 typically 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.
