Got the opportunity to test the MAXAMET Mule Team.
Tested on 5/8" Manila Rope, cardboard, wood, power cord and HD Zip Ties.
Edge Geometry is 15 Degrees per side and sharpened to 400 grit for testing (40 Micron)
A few Out of the box pictures:
Rope Testing, made slicing cuts until 20 LBS of downforce was reached. Made 1940 cuts and knife would slice printer paper after, very aggressive cutting on rope.
Sharpened it back up for the Cardboard stage.
Cut 4,000 Linear Ft of Cardboard, would slice newspaper after cutting.
Wood Cutting to check edge strength.
Cut Power Cord to test edge strength.
Cut HD 175# Zip Tie to test edge strength and durability.
Interesting steel overall, I think Spyderco did a good job with it, very aggressive cutter on rope. Reprofiling and sharpening was straight forward, I use 320 grit Silicon Carbide to reprofile and 400 grit Silicon Carbide to finish. Takes a nice edge and gets very sharp.
