Here's what Emerson says about the Gov't Mule..."The Government Mule was the workhorse of the US Military for almost 150 years. It moved the army. All the supplies: food, ammunition, weapons, and artillery were dependent on the strength, endurance and dependability of this animal to get from one battlefield to the next. In fact, our ability to wage war rode on the back of a government mule. The "Emerson Government Mule" fixed blade has many of those same attributes. It is strong, rugged and dependable. Constructed of thick, battle proven 154CM Steel, nearly .200" thick. It features a combat ready, bullnose, spearpoint blade that is every bit as tough as it looks. The handles are made of black dimpled G-10 that are securely bolted with industrial strength hardware. Best of all, it is an Emerson design with legendary "Emerson Ergonomics" that are everything you've come to expect from Emerson Knives. This knife isn't just a workhorse, it's a Government Mule."
