I understand that there are a few exclusives in-the-works for 2019.

I'm guessing:

BladeHQ

St. Nicks(I hope)

Those are the two I think are most likely.

If we have shaman exclusives coming, I’ll probably go without the dlt 20CV manix and save for a shaman. The cruwear/micarta sounds interesting as well.
Currently pondering the mysteries of the universe, such as: Who is this Nuff person, and why is he quoted for saying just about everything?

Top 5 knives I’ve owned: Serrated Caribbean Leaf, Shaman, Manix XL, ZDP-189/CF Caly 3.5, Native LW.
Top 5 steels I’ve owned: LC200N, K390, CPM S90V, M390, CPM M4.
Top 3 steels I want more of: M390 class, A11 class (including K390), serrated LC200N.

I get that manufacturing capacity is a thing, but it's amazing to me that we've not had a single Shaman sprint yet. M4. PLEASE M4.
YES. M4 would be maybe first on my list for a different steel for this (even though I suggested CTS 204p or 20CV). Maybe in order
of enthusiasm (by me), my list would be:

1) M4
2) 4V
3) Cruwear (or is it Cruware?)
4) CTS 204P

By the way Nick, I watched your Shaman video last night. Thanks.

This is exciting to hear. Maybe they will peek at this thread and consider some of the steel suggestions!!

I was wringing my hands over this last night and decided that I can hold my breath a little longer for a sprint or exclusive.
If the unthinkable happens and this goes on the discontinued list, I guess that means I can get the S30V at a discount,
and my Christmas Gift problems for my sons for next year will be solved too.

I am absolutely sure that this knife will knock me over.

Watching some videos last night I was reminded that a CF/S90V version of the Shaman has been talked about.
If so, what about swapping S90V for M4 (or one of the other suggestions?). If it does get made with S90V that
might be a steel where a thinner blade might make sense, eh? But maybe that means retooling other things.

Well, there is great hope for the future, I'll be able to sleep soundly tonight, knowing that 2019 may bring great things in the
way of Shaman Exclusives. No I won't rush out and buy another Griptillian -- even though it is good to diversify a bit.

The cruwear micarta would be the only one that would get me to buy one. Will be looking for that.

cruwear micarta is the main one I'm looking for, but any retailer exclusives would also be interesting!

I own the Shaman and love it. The contoured scales are wonderful in hand. I found that going back to the Mili or PM2 after using the Shaman makes those models feel a little cheap/lazy.

If $180 is a problem for some, how will the market respond to the price of a sprint? Is it going to cost $220-250...275? I can’t imagine a sprint Shaman selling for $180.

250-275 would be too much imo. But I think more people would rather pay $210-220 for cruwear/micarta (for example) than $180 for g10/s30v.

$220 would be the sweet spot in my opinion. That’s $40 more for a scale/steel upgrade...seems very reasonable.

I have been thinking about it as well, since I had a chance to handle it couple months ago. I don't need it since I have a comparable knife which doesn't get much use, but I am interested in what sprint will be released first.

I have an idea what sprint/exclusive I would say no to. But everything else is fair game.

it is a goal of mine to cut back on spending, will be very hard to not want all of the variations.

I'll definitely find a way to fund the cruwear/micarta sprint, but that would be easier with a price point closer to where the current model is.
