Description

This exciting Shaman sold out in record time. Our next exclusive drop will be the Yojimbo 2 Black M4 / Natural G10.

We've heard the demands for a CPM-M4 Shaman and are excited to deliver! This Blade HQ exclusive Spyderco Shaman is next in line of our sold-out M4 and natural G-10 series! The Shaman is a relatively new offering from Spyderco, and this will be the very first exclusive variation of this new favorite! Limited run that will go quick.

We've tweaked the standard Shaman configuration to create a unique addition to our exclusive Spyderco lineup. The standard blade has been upgraded with premium CPM-M4 steel, a high-speed steel with excellent toughness and edge retention qualities. The Shaman is a knife that begs to be used, and the toughness of a fantastic tool steel like CPM-M4, compliments this knife extremely well. The standard black G-10 handle has been replaced with translucent green natural G-10 scales.

The Spyderco Shaman is a larger, more capable version of the iconic Native design theme. A high saber grind and prominent swedge create excellent edge geometry and a fine-tuned point. Its handle sports ergonomic G-10 scales over skeletonized stainless steel liners to keep the Shaman lightweight and comfortable. Top it off with a high-strength Compression Lock mechanism and a four-position pocket clip, and you have one solid EDC folder.

Features:
  • Built with a Compression Lock for top-notch security during use.
  • Premium CPM-M4 steel provides excellent cutting performance.
  • Contoured natural G-10 scales offer a comfortable and secure grip while keeping carry weight minimal.

Spyderco hit this one out of the park. I love the materials great steel, beautiful jade G10 handle whatís not to like about this knife. Oh and did I forget to mention how smooth this thing is to deploy, all though this knife isnít small itís just right for EDC purposes. Definitely a tank of a knife but with upgraded materials Iím glad I held out on your more basic options for this knife. Once again too bad this was a limited run cause I highly recommend for any knife nut!

Pros:
Great steel with a great blade for hard work. The thick stock and M4 are much better than some other knives that claimed to be hard and tactical. Love the spydie hole and compression lock.

Cons:
The only issue is that the edge grind is not very good compared to some more expensive knife.

So I've had this bad boy for a few days now. Unlike some others leaving reviews mine definitely did NOT come drop-shut smooth out of the box. It was very stiff. Since receiving it I've taken it apart, cleaned, and oiled it. The bit of work made the action much better. I have a feeling it will break in very nicely after I've flipped it a few thousand times.

My EDC before the M4 Shaman was a standard PM2 and let me tell you the differences are night and day. After handling the Shaman for a few days my PM2 feels like a delicate flower in-hand. Both are impressive however keep in mind if you think the PM2 is bulky you will find the Shaman to be a boat anchor.

The Jade scales look great in person. Much better than in photos in my opinion. I'll really be curious to see how they look after carrying for a while.

I can't comment too much on the M4 steel as I haven't used it much and this is my first blade equipped with it. I have noticed this will absolutely develop a patina over time. No matter how well you keep it clean. If you don't like the look of a patina then maybe the standard Shaman in S30v will be more your style.

All and I'll I feel VERY lucky to have pounced on this exclusive the five minutes they were available! This will absolutely be my new EDC as I don't believe in safe queens.
Holy SHHHAMON!

I received mine today. This looks freakin sweet! The natural G10 with the satin finish just pops. The blade is perfectly centered and it has the smoothest action of any Spyderco I have ever owned. It drop shuts freely straight out of the box! I think Sal made this just for my hand, melts in my large hands perfectly. I'm so glad I was able to snag this one within the 5 minutes it was available.
Outstanding knife

I sat and camped out on my lunch break for this drop and was super fortunate to grab one in the brief period they were available. I own a Shaman in s30v, so I already knew I loved the design. To have one with the outstanding M4 steel was a no brainier for me. I rushed home from work yesterday to find it waiting in my mailbox just two days after placing my order. The knife came out of the box with an incredibly smooth drop shut action. I was unsure about the look of the natural g10, but in person, it is far more appealing than it is in pictures. Overall, I am extremely please with the quality of this knife. Fit and finish are spot on. This knife definitely reenforces my desire to pursue more Blade HQ exclusive Spydercos in the future.
Got it a day early!

Another lucky one to get it in the 5 minutes it was available...absolutely love the way it feels in my hand. Ergos are great. Thought about dying the scales but now that I see them, think I'm going to leave as is for now.

Shaman in PJ is boring to me, and overpriced. For the price of DLC S30V, this exclusive blows it out of the water. Much better in hand than a Manix (even the XL), comfier and thicker than a PM2, and stouter than a Military. Lovely action and centering out of box, smooth G10 scales, good grind, and fits my hand better than a Native. Get the DLC one when you get a chance.
Yesss!
