Inspired by the iconic Spyderco Native®, the Shaman offers the same advanced ergonomics and proven design dynamics, but in a larger, even more capable format. This elite version of the Shaman showcases a satin-finished blade crafted from CPM® M4. A popular material for high-performance custom blades and knives used in competitive cutting, CPM M4 is a special purpose high speed tool steel produced by the particle metallurgy process. Its sophisticated alloy composition, high vanadium content, and extremely fine grain structure give it exceptional wear resistance and toughness—properties that translate to outstanding edge retention and impact resistance in knife blades.
Equally unique, the handle of this knife features Blade HQ's signature natural-colored G-10 scales. The interior surfaces of the contoured, smooth-finished scales are machined to house nested stainless steel liners that provide outstanding structural strength and form the foundation of the knife's Compression Lock® mechanism. A polished four-position pocket clip completes the package, allowing all possible carry options and ensuring the knife is always instantly accessible.
A remarkable expression of one of Spyderco's most dynamic models, this Exclusive Shaman is ideal for discriminating users and collectors alike.
