I was actually thinking about this earlier. Yes, if more are made then more will get into people's hands but it'll still be a feeding frenzy. The frenzy will just be prolonged this time. I honestly hope actual users have a better opportunity to buy one but I have the feeling there'll still be people griping.TkoK83Spy wrote: ↑Wed Oct 28, 2020 8:38 amYou know people here will still go CRAZY once it drops and panic if they don't get it from the first distributor that releases them though haha. Hopefully won't turn into the spectacle it was when the CruCarta version dropped. I remember reading that people were actually LOSING SLEEP over that knife, or refreshing their computer browsers every 20 seconds for hours at a time...it was surreal!
Good to hear you'll be using yours! I can promise you, that micarta just gets better and better the more you carry and use it. Mine feels as little slicker than when it was new, but also kind of softer. It's weird, but very unique and comfortable.
it might be the knife my hands love the most. As soon as you hold one... new Shaman fans are made every day!
Thank you, I'm happy to be here.
The Z-Wear Shamans have not been released yet. Are you complaining about something that hasn't even happened?citori wrote: ↑Sat Dec 05, 2020 7:53 pmI wish I could be enthusiastic about it as well. I have a couple of fixed blades in Z wear and the stuff is great.
But I thought the sprint run thing was going to get better. This is definitely not. I don't have time to fool with all the secret squirrel idiocy, and no one seems to be taking actual pre-orders because apparently they don't know how many to take, so I'll have to miss this one.
Considering the questions you posed, your signature is perfect!steelcity16 wrote: ↑Mon Dec 07, 2020 8:02 amHi Sal, thanks for pushing to make more of this version so more people get a chance to own one.
Couple of follow up q's..
1. Any ETA of when these will start hitting dealers?
2. Last year following the Cru-carta frenzy you said your team had decided to make 3 additional Micarta Shamans. There was speculation that there would be a similar steel (Z-wear with same Brown scales), same steel (Cruwear with different color like OD Green), and a new steel (K390 was the main guess/ask). Any word on whether there are any more Micarta Shamans in the works that will follow the Z-wear?
3. Are there are plans for any of the future Micarta Shaman versions to be a standard production model rather than a sprint given the demand for these?
4. Are there going to be additional "flagship" models with will receive the Cru-carta treatment such as the Native or Military?
I hate to say it but I must agree. In my impatience of waiting for the Shaman , I ordered 2 Microtechs and a Carribean. Now I'm broke.
