    Tom Krein Handles for the Mule Team....

    Tom Krein is putting handles on Mule Teams, and these are some examples.

    I hope to be able to have Tom do one of my Mules.

    Handles look great, or this is just photography magic?
    Just kidding. Nice pictures. I have no doubt in the quality level of Tom's job.

    I think one of the green ones in that picture might be mine, or its very similar, Tom sent it back to me at the end of last week. I have to say I am very happy with his work, it looks great and fit & finish on the handle and sheath are beautiful. I took a bunch of pics, I will post after I resize them.

    If you think your mules are sharp when you get them from Spyderco let Tom sharpen one for you! Im pretty sure this is the sharpest knife I have ever owned.

    A couple pics, I took some with some other knives for size comparison but they are other brands so I will leave those off.

    As requested, I took pictures of the mule with a coated benchmade nimravus cub in m2 steel. Similar in size and materials but very differant in shape and feel. Enjoy!

    I like how that image catches the grain of the micarta, very nice.

    And nice to see one of those M2 Nimravus. RIP James.

    That Tom Krein does some fantastic work!!! His custom knives are incredible and a steal of a deal to boot! He also does some sweet mule handles! Heck, Ive made more mule handles than I can remember now, I may have him make one for me just for the fun of not making one for my own mule
