Yep, a LW version in something other than black (and other than s90v/s110v/maxamet) would get me to try out a Shaman.
I don't think a LW version would even be a Shaman.
Because it's supposed to be a beefy knife? Having never trued one out (yet), I'd like to know. I was thinking of the manix 2 lw, which is a lw version of a workhorse knife that I like. What's the reason a Shaman wouldn't translate into lw the way a manix does? Legit question, not being sarcastic.

I'd say it would keep the character of the Shaman if it was fully contoured FRN of the new, stiffer blend seen in the para 3 LW.

I really like S90V.

This is something that I had already noticed. Worth paying attention to. I am totally on-board with this.

Sometimes I get the feeling that sprint runs are something that Sal wants and figures that he will give the rest of us a shot at.

I preface this by saying I own 2 DF2s, a Chap LW and plan on buying the Sage 5 LW, have to say a Shaman with big fat plastic scales will feel cheap. Ever handle a BM Griptilian? No thanks!

I've handled one, but i agree that the texturing would need to be dialed in for sure on a LW Shaman. Price would need to be attractive too, and they'd need to make sure the inner edges of the molding are rounded a bit on the spine of the handle and around the blade slot. The G10 model has some sharper edges that pinch the hand when gripping the knife firmly. Fortunately, they're fairly easy to knock down with a brief swipe of 2000 grit sandpaper.

A Shaman LW does seem a contradiction to me.
