I’m glad to see Spyderco respond like this and I can only speak for myself but in my opinion, the big draw to this model is the Cruwear steel and micarta handle. I’m still trying to find the opportunity to purchase one but I will be disappointed if I miss out and they don’t make another run in Cruwear. I’m not interested in many other steels, especially in this model and would prefer to see them make another run in Cruwear but with a different color micarta. If they just plan on changing the steel, several people who were looking forward to this steel in this model will still miss out and it will also cause many of the flippers and collectors to jump on the new model. Hopefully the increased quantity will solve the second point
I know they can’t please everyone but I REALLY hope they end up doing another Shaman in Cruwear, even if it’s with a less popular or desirable handle material. I know it’s not all about me, but what I would love to see is a different color micarta with Cruwear and enough quantity to allow everyone who wants the Cruwear/micarta combination to buy one.

Sal, have you had a chance to play around with Terotuf? That would be an interesting material for a sprint run paired with these hard use steels like Cruwear/3V/4V. They make a really nice bright forest green one that I would love paired with 3V in a Shaman!
Thank you very much for responding to the comunity like this.
While I would still prefer Cruwear do to comfort with that steel, I would happily take PD1 or 4V or 3V. K390 is just a little too far into the rust prone region for my comfort.
Well, it’s mid day and nothing. Maybe I should have signed up my kid, girl friend and dog in the lottery. Hopefully some of the fine people here got one.
I see a lot of people saying this but I'm still not sure it wasn't 1200 pieces. It seems like I'm seeing as many pics posted online and as many being sold/flipped as any other sprint run.blueblur wrote: ↑Mon Nov 11, 2019 3:51 pmThis backs up the idea this run was smaller than the typical sprint.
