Re: Micarta Shaman 2nd Sprint Run

Cruwear Micarta Shaman <> PD-1 Micarta Shaman. Just like a M390 PM2 <> 20CV PM2. The Cruwear run is done, never to be made again in that combination of CPM-Cruwear with Brown Micarta. If they make a new sprint run with PD1 and Brown Micarta or one with CPM-Cruwear and OD Green Micarta, those are di...

Re: Micarta Shaman 2nd Sprint Run

Not sure why it will be referred to as a "sprint run" if it is essentially just another batch of the same knife. The letter I received implies that the sprint run is limited, unique, never-to-happen-again and, therefore, something of particular value (whatever the owner perceives that to be). This ...

Re: Your "return ethics"?

I've only returned 1 so far. Ordered a paysan from one place then found better deal and ordered from them. They were same companies just using different websites. Asked the first one not to ship as it wasn't even shipped out yet. They told me sorry can't do that. So, got both the knives and looked a...

Re: CS Para 3s

Sold mine shortly after receiving it last year because the scales got dirty EVERY TIME I carried it in my jeans. Even if I didn't use it. The scales are so vibrant, they easily get dirty and just looked bad. Not meant to be carried with jeans. Understandable. Warm water and soap doesn't clean it up...

Re: Micarta Shaman 2nd Sprint Run

I’m no expert, and haven’t looked much into this, but I’m pretty sure “Cruwear” and “CPM-Cruwear” are two different steels. So, you think the spyderco used cruwear and not cpm cruwear for the mule? yes, mule is not cpm. As was explained to me: the mule was ingot Cruwear. CPM Cruwear is chemically t...

Re: Bento Box Customer Service...

Look at it like this. You buy a brand new TV day before superbowl or something. Open it up and screen is cracked or just doesn't work. Bring it in to the retailer and they tell you to get bent. You ok with that??? Even worse being that they charged you full price... Believe this thread can end now. ...

Re: Micarta Shaman 2nd Sprint Run

Anyone mind enlightening me on that? Everyone get silly excited whenever the name Cru-Wear drops but PD-1 keeps flying under the radar, how come? In the same way, I will be eager to lend my support (in the form of buying a knife) to a PD1 Shaman -- but it will be kind of silly alongside the same in...

I see what you did there

Very wise business decision.

Re: Peel-ply Carbon Fiber Peeling?

If spyderco agrees to pay shipping to them then that's probably where to send it. Otherwise it's their knife and their $ to not spend on shipping fees if they choose.
Either way I'm certain it would wind up back in Colorado.

Bow River for me
Same here. I actually didn't know about this knife until I was scolling through knivesplus site and came across some flytanium ball cage lock for manix 2. So, go 2 of those and wanted to go over 100 for free ship and ran into bow river. Looks great for just $30.

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

I'm ok with lottery for all sprints. Beats the heck out of reading all the negative comments and such.
Makes the knife even more special cause you kinda won it, even though you had to come out of pocket.

Re: Bento Box Customer Service...

For the full retail prices they charge you would think they could afford to hire someone to take care of such things. Never have and never will buy from them regardless of pricing with their current policies.

Re: Peel-ply Carbon Fiber Peeling?

Where did you get the knife? I would see if the dealer would let you return and replace it at no charge. Spyderco would credit them and everyone is happy. Spyderco probably wants to study the knife for future issues The dealer could/would most likely have send it to them as they want credit as well.
