Another Spyderco Mule but this time a different steel and a wood handle rather than micarta.
This one also has mosaic pins and red liners so it looks a bit more fancy than the previous one I did ( here ) but just as durable as the wood is stabilised.
Spyderco Mule Team 13 - Elmax
Spyderco’s thirteenth Mule Team Project installment uses Elmax steel produced by Böhler-Uddeholm Steel of Kapfenberg, Austria.
first sold steel in North America in 1925 by providing European-made
steels to toolmakers, manufacturing industries and construction jobs in
the U.S. Their Elmax is an alloy composed using powdered metallurgic
technology that was designed specifically for high-tech applications,
primarily for use in the electronics industry. It contains elevated
levels of chromium, vanadium-molybdenum that deem it a well-tailored fit
for making knife blades. These elements translate into resistance to
wear and corrosion and it has a homogenous grain structure making it
malleable when grinding and forming.
