"I don't think 1095 is that bad at edge retention but in a carbon steel I'd much rather see 52100.  However, for everyday carry I'd much rather have a stainless blade.  440C is better than the junk 420 and AUS6 that a lot of…"

Spyderco mule knives

I finally caved in and got a mule blank. I've been wanting one for a few years but as you all understand when I'd get a knife some other model was selected. But a few months ago I got the mule team 20 with CTS-B70P blade steel. I made a handle for it out of leopardwood and curly maple (red leaf) woods. I added two mosaic 1/4" pins.  Here are some pictures.…See More

Hi Jack,

   I see where you are directing folks to: caddyman1973@gmail.com for stiddys.  I have one I found on ebay, but what I need is a slackner, or information on where to find one.  If most folks make them, I could use some info on doing that.  Material to use, what thickness? do guys use more than one thickness?  Also, when shearing the pins of a folder, what's the best type of knife or blade to use?  Is there a real good you tube video I should look at?  Can a person shear stainless pins, or do you just punch them through?  I've sent you a friend request because you seem knowledgeable about folder repair.  Hope we can share ideas and information. 

Mike.
