So I'm looking into working with some custom makers to perhaps get a reblade done, and buying the damasteel alone is pretty pricey, in the 150-200 range depending on pattern.
Definitely gives some insight into why Spyderco might be hesistant - folks already complained about the Shaman's cost. A Damasteel sprint might break 500.
