The Spyderco Shaman is a larger, more capable version of the iconic Native design theme. This model is built with a plain-edged CPM-S30V stainless steel blade. A high saber grind and prominent swedge create excellent edge geometry and a fine-tuned point. Its handle sports ergonomic, matte-finished 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.

  • Built with a Compression Lock for top-notch security during use.
  • Premium CPM-S30V steel provides excellent cutting performance.
  • Contoured G-10 scales offer a comfortable and secure grip while keeping carry weight minimal.

A fine work knife.
Matt K.
I just got it yesterday so I haven't had a lot of time to use it but so far I like it a lot. It's a bit beefier than the Manix 2 while maintaining similar dimensions overall. The greater blade thickness is where it stands out. On paper it probably seems minimal but in my opinion it does inspire a bit more confidence in heavier duty tasks. The blade and pocket clip are actually stonewashed not satin(as described) which to me is a plus. The g10 scales have nested but sturdy steel liners. They're sculpted nicely for ergonomics and fairly grippy. They're not as aggressive as the g10 on some other models but are by no means slick.

If I had any nitpicks it would be that the g10 scales are a little "sharp" on the inside edges. Also, on the tail end the scales and the back spacer do not sit flush. Not sure if this is intended or maybe a QC fault. I suppose I could do some sanding and make it right but it kind of stings to have to do that for $150. I don't know if it's worth returning or trying to get ahold of Spyderco over but I'll consider it.

Overall, the design is solid and it strikes me a great work knife rather than a show piece. I'd imagine that this will be a big hit for Spyderco fans. I look forward to an exotic sprint run in the future!
