Mule Team™ 18 CPM-S110V
Mule Team 18 is made with CPM S110V. CPM S110V blade steel is produced using a CPM - Crucible Particle Metallurgy process developed by Crucible Industries of Solvay, New York, U.S.A.
What differentiates CPM S110V from other blade steels is its volume of vanadium-rich (9.0%) and niobium-rich (3.0%) alloys which classify it as a martensitic stainless tool steel. Crucible’s powdered metal process creates uniform carbide distribution of the steel’s components throughout the blade for superior wear resistance, toughness and corrosion protection. These are positive performance characteristics highly desired in state-of-the-art exotic blade steels.
