Mule Team™ CPM REX T15
Whether you're a hobbyist knifemaker or obsessed with testing the limits of exotic blade steels, this edition of the Spyderco Mule Team is sure to please. It is crafted from CPM REX T15, a super-high-speed tool steel enriched with high volumes of tungsten, vanadium, and cobalt for extreme abrasion resistance. This advanced material is used primarily in the manufacture of end mills, broaches, and other tools used to shape difficult-to-machine materials under conditions of high frictional heating. Its sophisticated alloy composition can only be achieved through the Crucible® Particle Metallurgy (CPM) process, which also ensures a homogenous microstructure with a finer, more uniform carbide distribution. Like all Mule Team blades, this one is sold consumer direct only and is furnished without handle scales or a blade sheath.
