I believe that is the increase in MSRP plus being compared to DLC plus with the increase in MAP. The Satin model went up $30 street prices. Comparing the DLC version to the previous price of the satin model is disingenuous.

The Satin Shaman before MAP was $149.97
The Satin Shaman after MAP and an increase in MSRP is $181.97
The DLC Shaman after MAP and an increase in MSRP is $194.97
I do not believe that the DLC Shaman was available before the MAP/MSRP increases.

Have you seen any satin shamans with raised price yet? I still see them for $149

I just took that price from Knifecenter. They show an MSRP of $279. BHQ and some others are still showing $249. I suspect that $279 will be the new MSRP. They are showing an MSRP of $299 for the DLC.

I think that if folks want this one that they should be buying them up now. ;)

I was planning/hoping to wait for a sprint run to pick up a Shaman. However, if I am correct, the 2018 models are being sold for $50 more than 2017. Was there something changed with the 2018 models or just a price increase for 2018? If they are already $50 more, I think I will be out for the sprint runs due to cost.
I am not sure where info on $50 come from.
MAP went up from 60% to 65% of MSRP. This is it. So Shaman instead of $150 street price will be something like $162.50.
Still much less than Strider :)

Upon further investigation, price went from 149 to 181. 5% from MAP plus MSRP increased to 280 from 250.
The price was listed as 149 but when added to cart it showed up as the 181.

Follow up: I was able to get it for 150 elsewhere. Wanted to wait for a good Sprint run, but I have to assume now they will be more than I am currently willing to pay.

Think it's relevent due to the 18% price hike on this blade and the upcoming sprint(s) in the line up. This price increase as stated will take others out for the sprints where they may have signed up initially. Not drama just facts. Not sure why it has to be drama for people talking data. Why is it an emotional topic? It's a fairly significant price hike and something that is very relevant to this model.

The drama, you ask? Let's see, you're impugning the motives of Sal whose forum this is. You don't see drama in that?

I see it as honest feedback, not drama?

I never questioned the motives of Sal. Facts are the price increase on the Shaman is 18% from 2017 to 2018. I'm sure Spyderco did the analysis for the price hike on this model. No worries here and I can talk without being emotional about it because it's just data to me. There is data that is tied to this model in 2018. Only the data has been spoken to and is indeed a news thread. I'm out.

Sign me up for CF/S90V or Grey G10/Cruwear!!

I’m kind of sad I returned my Shaman now, but I’d much more prefer a souped up version!
