The Ka-Bar Mule folder is a nice heavy duty folding knife.  This knife weighs half a pound and comes in several different colors and two different blade styles.  The drop point style comes in black and desert tan with sheaths to match the color of the knives.  The tanto style blades seem to be the most popular and come in three colors, black, desert tan, and foliage green.  They also come in sheaths to match.

As well as the two different blade styles the Ka-Bar Mule folding knife also comes with a plain blade or a combination plain and serrated blade.  The serrated section is great for cutting rope, paracord, small limbs, or just about anything else you can think of.

One thing I like to remind people about these different types of blades, you have to sharpen them differently and you may also  need special sharpening stones for the serrated sections.  Serrated sections on a knife do tend to stay sharper longer however.  Almost all American tanto blades have to be sharpened as two different edges, meaning that it’s not a fluid motion like a plain bowie or drop point style knife.

Ka-Bar has joined the Zombie craze and released their Ka-Bar Mule in a Zombie version. Here’s some links to look at them, I’ll get some pictures up soon.

The Mule is a great knife. Solid as a rock. Aus 8 is a decent Japanese steel. Never had any issues with it. Great grip. Not a highspeed fanboy mall ninja blade. A cheap functional strong lockback with one of the best pouches around. Mine has front velcro as well as a snap stud. Do the new ones have the stud as well?
