Kabar Mule Tanto 3-13/16" 0.135 mm 3Cr13 HRC 57-59 17.5 3.5um 2 B Tactical
 
Authors Comments:Reprofiled with 50/80 stones to 17.5 degree on each side. Knife if built like tank and the angle holds through abuse. Used all the stones from 50/80 to 1200/1600, then taped 2500 grit sandpaper to the ceramics. Stropped after all that, finishing with 3.5um for a mirror finish
