1) Did you purchase a Mule Team knife in the past?
Yes - 11
2) Did you put a handle on it?
Yes on 3 of them
3) Did you make or buy a sheath?
Bought 3
4) Did you test the performance of your Mule?
Just through usage, mostly while camping. Nothing formal
5) Did you test the performance against other Mule Team knives?
Try to give the LC200N and the Maxamet equal use, especially camping/cooking for comparison, especially looking for corrosion/chipping. Zero on either.
6) Did you share your experience/findings with the Spyderco forum?
No

1) Did you purchase a Mule Team knife in the past?
Yes, lc200n and pma11
2) Did you put a handle on it?
Yes, the pma11
3) Did you make or buy a sheath?
Bought sheath with knife
4) Did you test the performance of your Mule?
Yes
5) Did you test the performance against other Mule Team knives?
No, because they were discontinued and not available. I did test against pocket knives and available steels.

6) Did you share your experience/findings with the Spyderco forum?
No, but did elsewhere. There isn’t a pma11 knife so it doesn’t come up much. Lc200n does and has been covered.

Did you purchase a Mule Team knife in the past?
Yes, I have the PMA 11

2) Did you put a handle on it?
Yes - G10 black from Spyderco

3) Did you make or buy a sheath?
Yes - Purchased from Spyderco - leather

4) Did you test the performance of your Mule?
Have been using it in preparing foods, etc in kitchen for about a year or so. Works well, I needed to sharpen it a couple times. Used a DMT diamond stone and finished off with the Sharpmaker. Holds an edge similar to my Wusthof chef knife. It is starting to patina nicely. I’m planning to keep it in the kitchen as I have other fixed blades for outside work.

This is my only Mule.

6) Did you share your experience/findings with the Spyderco forum?
No, I just joined it today.
