I am pleased to announce that there was a special meeting for management on this thread and they decided to make another run of brown canvas Micarta Shamans. We'll use a different, but complimentary steel and make twice as many as the first sprint.

According to earlier reports from Sal you will have plenty of time since we won't see it for a year.

That was the BladeHeadquarters Natural Jade G10 M4 Shaman, which has already come and gone and sold out the day it was released. I would assume there will be a DLC version in the near future though if you are after the Jade G10. You can find the satin version on ebay for $300-400.

Sheesh that's expensive. The current Micarta-Cruwear run sells new for about 350$ here in Europe, and that's already twice what I put in a new PM2. Guess I'll holdout for a few more months and hope I can snag one or wait for the DLC version.

Yeah, I have a feeling that the Denim Micarta Shaman that Sal said is coming is going to be in K390, though I would personally prefer 4V for that one. I can almost guarantee that BHQ will do a DLC M4 Jade G10 Shaman, the question is more of a when than an if in my opinion.

As long as they keep the time tested OG Millie i don't really care if they launch a comp lock Military 2 that spawns 100 Dealer exclusives to be honest.

Hi Evil,

We're tooling the base now. We'll remake the Duckfoot in CBN. Tooling for the Golden Stone is very dear. A base made more sense.

Hi Ramzar,

At this time, the plan is to try to set a 30% off MAP. It's still a nightmare scenario to try to please everyone on pricing. You kind understand and patience is appreciated.

^I saw that earlier, and I'm really disappointed to read it!

Besides exclusives that I MUST have, 35% MAP is already unacceptable. 30% is gonna make all non-sprints bitter purchases for me and drastically reduce them altogether.

If it encourages smaller dealers to carry more spydercos, then I guess I'll pinch more pennies.
