Question for those who have received their Shaman S90V.

Mine arrived today. This is my first Shaman and I have a question about the action when closing the blade.

All the comp lock Spydercos I have when I fully depress the lock bar the blade essentially falls shut. With this Shaman I received, when I depress the lock bar the blade begins to fall shut and then stops when it hits the detent ball. It cannot be depressed further to allow the detent ball to clear the blade.

I happened to have my comp lock Lil Native in my pocket so I used the handy magnifying feature on my iPhone. The detent ball on the Shaman sticks out much further from the lock bar surface than the Lil Native. It doesn't stick out twice as much but its a lot more. I assume this this issue as my Lil Native drops shut.

Anyone else experience this? Is this a "special" feature of the Shaman? Or is mine not made right?

My detent ball clears the tang on my S30V model. I haven’t carried my S90V model yet.

The action on the one I bought was similar to yours. I never actually figured out why though

Figured it out... I disassembled and discovered there was a burr at the tip of the lock bar that was pointed towards the carbon fiber (outside of the knife). It stuck out far enough to prevent the lock bar from being fully depressed and as a result the detent ball was putting a lot of drag on the tang.

Some passes with a stone removed the burr and now it drops shut perfectly. A bit disappointed it got out of the factory like this but at least it's fixed.

It should break in with the burrs worn off. I've carried mine quite a bit and it is now very smooth. I really like S90V.

would you ever consider making a "Shaman LightWeight" with FRN? Is that ever potentially in the works?

Hi SEF,

possible on FRN, depending on demand.

sal

A Shaman LW with a wire clip and flat, squared, FRN similar to the Native LW? Count me in! This might be a good opportunity to try a "straight to CPM-CRUWEAR" production model with a nice new color of FRN/FRCP and a DLC version and a stonewash version. Then follow up with a blacked out LC200N Salt variation! I like this idea!
Yep, a LW version in something other than black (and other than s90v/s110v/maxamet) would get me to try out a Shaman.
Be excellent to each other. - Bill S. Preston, Esq.

Man. Wish I got one of those jade ones. Very nice. A little big for an office EDC, but man it feels good in the hand.

A squared off handle? I really like everything about the model but the handle is really what makes it imo. Looks like it just melts in your hand.

Really like pretty much everything about the shaman. Probably the most comfortable ergonomic knife ive ever used. Feels perfect for my hands. As some have mentioned I would definitely be in for a lightweight version. With bidirectional texturing of course. Even if we lose some of the contour in the handle it would still be great. The para 3 lightweight has me sold on how good an frn compression lock can really be. Anyone else notice the bidirectional tecturing on the para 3 ltwt isnt as deep as other bidirectional frn models. Not really sure why. I think from a grip perspective i prefer the deeper version.
At the end of the day though I still prefer backlocks over everything else, so bring on a native chief lightweight and I couldnt throw my money at you fast enough.

I don't think a LW version would even be a Shaman.
