Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

Hi Hank, We operate on pretty fixed margins. Enough to run our company and take care of our crew. We'll make less on some makers because their prices are very high, but we don't generally raise prices on a hot item. We feel that "to charge as much as the market will bare" is biting the hand that fe...

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

In order to provide a little entertainment, and because every thread needs pictures, get a load of what someone did to one of these. Dyed scales, stonewashed blade, and "flame ano'ed" hardware: https://i.imgur.com/PdP2o5Y.jpg https://external-preview.redd.it/GhVYzc1bl15vBy0m0xioXfiyoIxIsNKcppNS5IAe...

Re: Sal the Micarta Man - Shaman flavors poll

Blue denim for sure, but I think I'd pick k390 over Cruwear, given the choice.

Maybe this a bad time, but what do you guys think of a green Micarta Cruwear Shaman, or maybe a green Micarta with another exotic steel? I could argue for a larger quantity.

Green would be my 2nd choice after blue denim. ;)

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

GP now makes the THIRD notice from 3 different dealers that I did not receive. :rolleyes: This has definitely become a bad joke. :( This CruCarta Shaman was made specifically for US enthusiasts, with our input. It does irk me that it seems to be so hard to obtain, and the reason it is hard to come b...

Re: Easy Ghost G10 In Your Choice of Color!

Pretty cool effect with that technique! I rit dyed a set of Jade scales awhile ago and then went to town on them with a scotch brite sponge and it gave a nice ghost effect as well. I don't have the knife anymore, but it looked cool. I noticed you posting on the Carothers board on that other forum. ...

Re: Easy Ghost G10 In Your Choice of Color!

Reserved for outdoor pics tomorrow. Outdoor photos which show the color much more accurately. As you can see, it is pretty dynamic depending upon the lighting. Quite happy with the results! :) IMG_4534.jpg IMG_4535.jpg IMG_4536.jpg IMG_4537.jpg IMG_4538.jpg IMG_4539.jpg IMG_4540.jpg IMG_4541.jpg

Re: Easy Ghost G10 In Your Choice of Color!

IMG_4513.jpg One thing I would do a little different next time, is I would NOT color the edge flats in the areas circled in these photos. The reason being is that those areas are somewhat exposed when the knife is closed, and you might get color transfer onto your clothes with the knife in your poc...

How To: Easy Ghost G10 In Your Choice of Color!

I'm not a huge fan of Jade (or "Natural") G10. Ever since I got my BHQ exclusive M4 Shaman, I've been wanting to dye the scales some shade of a translucent blue. :cool: On a lark, today became the day to do it. :spyder: Knife disassembled: IMG_4485.jpg Since I received the knife, Carothers Performan...

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

People that sign up for email notifications are set up for failure. Those emails are never sent immediately once a knife is released.

Re: Shaman Cruwear; Brown Micarta characteristics

One thing about micarta - textured, at least - is that it will darken and change color a bit as it absorbs the oils from your skin/lube/protective oils. Same when other substances get on it. I personally like that, but maybe not everyone will. I've actually never tried to clean the oil stains off a...

Just as an FYI. Makes me think the DLT cart opening up earlier was perhaps a glitch? Hope so.
