The Shaman is a new upgraded beefier version of the Spyderco Native design. The blade is an REX 45 with a high saber grind and is a terrific slicer. The blade geometry is nearly perfect and it cuts like nobody's business. The handles are a matte finish G10 with skeletonized liners for a lightweight carry. The handle is a little beefier for a comfortable grip and best of all the compression lock on top makes for a solid lockup and quick release. The 4 position pocket clip ensures that you can carry it any side and any way that you want...tip up or tip down.
This knife is sure to be a winner for a long time in the EDC world.
