    I thinned mine and put a new convex edge on it. I posted a review on here.

    I ended up with 4 of the K390 mule, instead of 2 mules and two forum Natives (separate orders), due to an ordering error (most likely mine). I contacted Spyderco who said I could either keep them or...

    I would campaign for a sub-3 inch Slipit (eg UKPK, Bob T Slipit, Pingo, Squeak). I would have no objection to this being a "gent's" knife. Serrated option, preferably.

    Both absolutely correct, of course. I bought the Warrior secondhand at a good price. I knew I could always sell it on.

    The pronounced belly of the blade doesn't favour whittling, but the point is still almost on the axis of the handle. This makes the tip controllable and much more useful than the blade shape would...

    I use mine for everything except its primary raison d'Ítre. The serrations are useful for de-legging deer but not much else for me. H1 is very tough for a stainless so you can bully the knife within...

    I have the plain edge Pacific Salt and like it. However, I'd second the comment about serrations above. The serrated H1 behaves differently to plain in edge retention.

    That depends on the HT of the ZDP in question. The original ZDP mule was around 66-67 HRc but was reportedly too unforgiving at that hardness. Most knives in ZDP will be less than this.
