And this leads to my next question on this very topic: IF Spyderco were to decide to start up the Mule program again, when it comes to the fixed blades, would you want them to use the same basic blade shape/pattern as before, or, would you want to see them experiment with other shapes? For example, would you want to see a wharncliffe or sheepsfoot Mule, or, the basic leaf shape pattern?
I like the idea of a mixed blade wharncliffe. For testing and utility, that's the most practical all around. Additionally, there's been interest in that particular blade shape, as we've seen in the Delica and Endura.

I would be for this design, as well.

Too many variables to answer yes. I could be interested in a locking folder if it was not a back lock and the scales were removable/exchangeable. Similar to TRM selling scales from the factory. Then it would depend on the steel. Doesn’t have to be stainless or exotic. Have to be a step up from VG 10.

I love the "kit" knife aspect of the mules and wouldn't have any interest in a folding version. A longer version would be fine with me if there "has" to be a change.

I'm growing more fond of the mules every day...maybe more than my para3's. Don't tell anyone though, people might think I'm crazy.

I'm definetely not interested in a folding mule.
Is that because the fixed blade version is just more useful for your chosen cutting chores, or, if you were to get a folder, you want a fully-finished folder with handle scales and everything else on it?
That would be the second reason.
