The notifications are not guaranteed. Like today I didn't get an alert, I just stumbled by here and seen it was in stock, and it was there for several minutes, longer than normal.

In person, it is a nice pumpkin color!
I agree! It's much different than the frn or regular G10 scales. I'm digging it!
Can we get some more piks of the burnt orange with other models? I would like to see the difference.

This is my first Shaman - so I didn't know if I'd hang on to this one or not, but I took it out of the box and gave it one look and a flick before it went in my pocket. Love it! The smooth G10 is great, but the edges are almost as sharp as the blade. Sure wish they'd smooth them out a bit. That'd be my only real gripe.

I received mine today, from the pics I've seen I was hoping it would be a match for the original Rex45 Sprint, like the Manix2 or Lil' Native are, but it's sorta in between the FRN and the first Sprint . . .

It takes less than a minute with some 1200 or 600 grit wet/dry silicon carbide paper to "dehorn" the edges.

Huh, that had not occurred to me, I wouldn't think it would change the colour that much but it's the only smooth G10 of the lot, so I suppose it's as good an answer as any. ;)

Colour aside, fit and finish are great, action is perfect, excellent edge out of the box, just stropped it and it's on point, and I almost always sharpen any knife first thing.

Awesome collection JMM. I like that it is balanced
(4 DLC and 4 Satin). It soothes my OCD. lol

A very nice lineup, JMM!
Thank you for sharing this picture with us. :spyder:

I just wish you would have backed the camera up some. The Cruwear/Micarta on the far-right. Got cut-off. We can't see it in this picture. :D

Thanks for this pic, JMM. :spyder:

I see three clips, that I have not tried yet.
From left to right. #2, #4, and #7.
If you would please, and when you have a spare moment. Send me a PM with details on those. I'd love to give them a try. :)
