As fast as they popped up they seem to have gone!!

When you mention this "REC coyote PM2’s", pdixon. Are you referring to the 10V models, or?
I don't live in the PM world, so I'm not sure if the S35VN & 10V models, are the only ones sporting 'coyote/brown' scales or not?

Re: Galley-V 600F Sharpener now shipping to Dealers

I'm hoping that Spyderco will throw up a video of this soon, on their YouTube channel. Giving us a better look, along with some spec. info..
So we don't have to wait until someone gets one bought, and then does a YouTube review of it. :spyder:

Galley-V 600F Sharpener now shipping to Dealers

I saw the Galley-V 600F sharpener shipping to Dealers notification today. From Spyderco's App. I didn't see this sharpener in Reveal #4 or #5, so I was caught a bit off guard. I'd love to get a couple of these! :spyder: In the description, it says: ". . extra long stones" , but gives no length. As a...

Hello SteveMidwest. Mine is also from the LS batch. I was suprised to see the LS date code as well. I have one from the ET run , but I haven't opened it yet. If I decide to keep the ET Shaman I will test it as well.

Thank you, EngDevGr3.

Re: Shaman Rex45 Sprint - General Discussion & Support thread - (not alerts)

The heat treat on the rex 45 seems to be very consistent across the board. I tested my orange Shaman today and it was 67.3. That's great to hear, EngDevGr3. About your HRC number. I've talked to a couple of friends of mine, who got nearly identical HRC numbers as ours. Only a 0.1 variation, between...

Re: Shaman Rex45 Sprint - General Discussion & Support thread - (not alerts)

I do love both. I'd have to give the win (feel) to the Spyderco scales though. (Except for all of the extra clip mounting holes) The Spyderco, easily feels smaller in the hand. Not that I need, want, or look for that. It's just the best way to describe it. I find that when fidgeting with it from tim...

Re: Shaman Rex45 Sprint - General Discussion & Support thread - (not alerts)

I thought I'd share a picture I took today, of my two Micarta Shamans. One is my recent Burnt Orange Canvas Micarta Rex 45, and the other one is Spyderco's own Canvas Micarta. Also sporting a Rex 45 blade. With about 5 months of EDC rotation use on it. Why only about 5 months in my rotation you may ...

Anyone buy custom scales from Aramis Akhmedov? He makes some really awesome carbon fiber scales for Shamans. Yes marshmallow. I have purchased a couple of sets of scales from Aramis Akhmedov. Both times, a perfect transaction. The last set I bought from him, was a couple of years ago. For my OG 560...

Thank you, JuPaul. I went in, thinking I was going to buy a set of Camo scales, with layers of green, black and tan, but they were out of stock. So I sent him a quick message. Asking him if he knew yet, when he would have some more available. He replied, that the supplier of that material had just c...

Re: Shaman Rex45 Sprint - General Discussion & Support thread - (not alerts)

I was looking at those exact scales just the other day, but decided the smooth G10 burnt orange was different enough in color from the G10 Manix and PM2 that I already have. Save a little cash! Those do look good though. I did the same mineral oil treatment to my terotuf scales and love the look! T...

Those look great!

Thank you, curlyhairedboy!

I sure do love it. :p

I think now, that I'm going to swap out the clip though. To another one just like it, but with a satin finish.
I'll move this stonewashed clip, over to the S30V stonewashed version.
