Going to war, a hike or looking for an awesome utility blade?
This is a knife you don't see too many reviews on, and I really wonder why. This is the cleanest looking, yet the baddest, toughest sub 5" blade I've ever used. If you are all about the coolest bells and whistles, you're at the wrong place. That is not what this knife is about. It's a simple, well designed, full tang razor sharp tank. It cuts deep, won't rust and is super easy to sharpen due to emersons "chisel edge". The blade geometry will allow the blade tip to take some good prying. Sir Ernest Emerson said at shot show "I'm not telling you too use it too lift a manhole cover with it, but you probably might be able to do that". I'm saying "I'm telling you to use it to lift a manhole over with, you will be able to do that". Cons? Edge retention might not be as good as say a strider or some of the other knives with the "super steels". Emerson has some pretty clear philosophies when it comes to their choice of steel, and it's well out there. I personally love 154cm, but everyone is different. Sheath might be a bit old school but it serves its purpose. This knife won't come with any surprises or something unexpected. It's pretty down to business.

I like Emerson knives, especially the fixed blades (not many available) like the Karambit. The Mule is really a masterpiece. It harkens back to the time of the gritty World Wars, yet utilizes superior steel to the originals. The design is ergonimic and beautiful. Mine came very sharp and ready to go. The sheath is very nice with a large pocket on it (I have a Swiss Army Knife, and Light my Fire ferro rod, and sharpening stone in mine and its fits well; heck, it fits good enough to put more in if I wanted to. It is a bit heavy but that is to be expected with this type of super strong knife. Recommended.
