About Maxamet:
Spyderco’s twenty-fourth Mule Team installment features Carpenter®steel's Micro-Melt®Maxamet®alloy—a super-hard high-speed powdered tool steel possessing properties that transcend conventional high-speed tool steels approach those of cemented carbides, the ultra-hard materials used to machine other steels. When Carpenter developed this amazing alloy, they sent samples to various companies in the knife industry to evaluate as a blade material. Although many tried, Spyderco was one of only a handful of companies to successfully develop the specialized methods necessary to machine, heat treat, and grind this demanding material to yield reliable high-performance knife blades. We are now extremely proud to offer it to our Mule Team enthusiasts—so proud in fact that the MT24 Maxamet Mule "jumped the line" ahead of our scheduled MT23 release.

Maxamet's remarkable alloy composition includes: Carbon: 2.15%, Manganese: 0.30%, Sulfur: 0.070%, Silicon: 0.25%, Chromium: 4.75%, Cobalt: 10.00%, Vanadium: 6.00%, and Tungsten: 13.00%. This sophisticated mix of elements, combined with the advantages of powdered metal technology, give it an extraordinary balance of wear resistance and toughness at high hardness levels.

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 don't think sharpening will be the issue if they are used to steels like 10V and S110V, reprofiling if people choose to try it may be difficult depending on various factors.

Depends on what Spyderco decided to do with it HT wise, that is going to be a very large factor here with this one.

This is great news, only thing that continues to bother me though is shipping to Alaska, it doesn't cost any more to ship here than any of the other 49 States in the Union so I don't understand the $15 surcharge :(

This sounds awesome! Can't wait to read reviews and tests on this steel. I am way too green to sharpen this knife so I will stay away, but it sounds big time.

I already bought my scales and sheath so I can hit the ground running when I get this.

45 USD to Canada? That's going to bring the total price for a mule to over 200 CAD.

I'd love to have one but I'm not sure I want one that badly.

So much for my savings account. This would come right after I finally caved and bought the 52100 and 204P Millies.
