Spyderco Shaman Compression Lock Knife Black G-10 (3.58" Satin) C229GP

Original price $479.99
Current price $349.99

Drawing inspiration from our iconic Native® folding knife, the Shaman offers the same advanced ergonomics and proven design dynamics in a larger, even more capable format. The soul of this impressive design is its CPM® S30V® stainless steel blade, which features a full-flat grind for outstanding edge geometry and an acute, utilitarian point. A fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ proudly announces its Spyderco lineage and ensures swift, reliable, one-handed opening with either hand.

The stonewash-finished blade is housed in an exceptionally refined, ergonomic handle built with nested skeletonized stainless steel liners and contoured matte-finished G-10 scales. This robust construction forms the foundation of the knife’s high-strength Compression Lock® mechanism, which locks the blade securely open and allows safe, easy one-handed closing.

To ensure convenient carry and immediate access, a stonewashed four-position pocket clip offers left or right-side, tip-up or tip-down carry. Available with either a PlainEdge™ or fully serrated SpyderEdge™ blade, the Shaman offers powerful cutting magic in a stylish, user-friendly format.

One of the best

This is my favourite pocket knife in my collection. Very heavy duty but still a super slicer. You can’t go wrong with this one, definitely worth the price and you get more value than you’re paying for.

Epic Knife

This is my 8th Spyderco knife and it is now my favourite. Before I got the Shaman, the PM2 was my main carry, but now, it is still the PM2. The knife sticks way too far out of pocket with the stock pocket clip, but once I get an aftermarket clip, the Shaman will be my main carry.
When I first got the Shaman I did not like it at all; The detent was way too heavy and the knub kept slamming my finger when closing the knife. After around 2 days of finger training, the detent is no longer a negative for me. The heavy detent actually makes the knife snap open with authority. The knub is also no longer a problem as I can time my finger to move out of the way now.
The handle fits my hands (S/M gloves) perfectly with absolutely no hot spots.
The blade is very stout and I would trust it with my life. The compression lock is my favourite lock type as it balances strength and ease of operation. The finger choil will prevent your fingers from getting chopped if the lock does fail.
The Shaman is a big and heavy duty knife so I cannot recommend it to everyone. But for me, I can think of no better knife and I will definitely be looking to get another one.
