The Spyderco Mule Team Project was started by Spyderco’s owner, Sal Glesser to satisfy the needs of the “steel junkies” (see Spyderco’s website for the complete history). At the suggestion of Mr. Glesser, Halpern Titanium began machining G10 handles to fit the blades for customers wanting a fully functioning knife without needing to make their own handles. Halpern Titanium has had a long-time partnership with Spyderco, so this was a natural progression.
Halpern machines the mule handles with the same US-made G10, carbon fiber, Micarta® and Dymondwood® that we use in our production of hundreds of thousands of handles for knife companies around the world.
The Spyderco Mule Team handle is one of two handles sold by Halpern Titanium directly to individual customers. The popular Spyderco Swick was just added to our offerings. We are pleased to be a part of the Spyderco Mule Team Project.
