Mule Team™ K294
Spyderco's unique Mule Team™ Series enables knife enthusiasts to test the performance of different blade steels using the same exact fixed-blade design platform. Sold without handles or sheaths, Mule Team blades are also the perfect "kit blades" for hobbyists and novice knifemakers. This Mule Team blade features Böhler-Uddeholm’s K294 MICROCLEAN tool steel. Manufactured in Sweden using their third-generation powder metallurgy technology, K294 is essentially an expression of A11 tool steel enhanced by the benefits of the powder metallurgy process. Also comprable to Crucible Industries' CPM 10V®, it is most often used in demanding cold-work tooling applications requiring extreme wear resistance and compressive strength. As a blade material, its wear resistance translates into outstanding edge retention, especially when used to cut abrasive materials. All Mule Team blades are sold consumer direct and available only at the Spyderco Factory Outlet or through Spyderco.com.
