Magnacut steel- how tough is it?

According to Ed Schempp, designer for Spyderco and USPS, Leatherman's champion steel may not be all its cracked up to be!

Leave the dents as they are- let your belongings show their scars as proudly as you do yours.

     That’s the new boomerang heat treatment. You use it for throwing knives that will return to you.

Anyone who has had fleas on them will know that's quite a curse.

Also possible it’s just done for the attention / likes / clicks and it’s actually paper in there…

Possible, but unlikely.  Ed is a well known and respected knifemaker who has been supplying designs to Spyderco for years.  He doesn't really seem like the attention hound type.

Ah, fair enough.

Glad I don’t share a mailman with him then.

Took a bend like that and didn’t break. I’d say that’s pretty tough. :D

My first thought.  Just having a little fun.  What proof have we that the package still has the contents in it?

If it did happen, maybe this got caught up in the machinery.

this was exacltly my first thought. it looks like they tried to run it through an automated machine and it got wrapped around a pulley.

if it didn't break it is extremely impressive and durable. Since they are 0.1" thick I would say it is possible, especially if not heat treated.
