About PSF27:
Spyderco’s nineteenth Mule Team Project installment features PSF27, a tool steel produced using the Spray Forming Process. Spray forming—also known as spray casting or spray deposition—begins by melting an alloy steel in an induction furnace. The molten steel is then poured through a ceramic nozzle and broken up into droplets by an array of gas jets. The droplets are accelerated by the jets to impact onto a collection surface while still in a semi-solid condition. There they build up to form a spray-formed billet, assuming the shape of the substrate surface. The small size and rapid cooling of the droplets minimizes alloy segregation to produce an extremely fine-grained homogenous steel.

PSF27 combines the advantages of the Spray Forming Process with an alloy composition (1.55% carbon, 12.00% chromium, 0.75% molybdenum, 1.00% vanadium) that is basically equivalent to D2 tool steel. The synergy of these alloys and the Spray Forming Process results in a steel that offers increased toughness, wear resistance, crack resistance, and higher hardness. It is also more predictable and dimensionally stable during the heat-treatment process.

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 hope these continue to be ground as thin as the other most recent Mules have been

The first Taiwan Mule (S110V as I recall) was ground thinner than typical, but I thought Sal said he'd remedy that in the future.
I don't know if this is a Golden Mule or a Taiwan Mule.
Edit: Now we need D2 (ingot) and D2 (CPM) Mules for comparison!

Being a tool steel, does that mean it won't be stainless?

Higher hardness? Do we know the target hardness?

"basically equivalent to D2" would mean that it is semi-stainless. It doesn't have quite enough chrome in it to be completely classified as stainless, but it is reasonably stainless they way that most people use it.

I am a D2 lover so any similar iteration makes me happy. I knew the S110V was Taiwan, but the K390 was thin as well wasn't it? Maybe I am recalling something else?

Hah, these go up for sale on my birthday!

I've never used D2, but seeing as these are going up on my birthday.... why the heck not. I might just give it a shot.

I think one of the more interesting parts of this alloy is the inclusion of some Nitrogen. Its a small amount so should be interesting to see how much change this makes.
