I just spoke to the SFO, and was told that the Crucarta shaman is expected to be in reveal 3 in a couple weeks. The Rex 45 rosewood (Rexwood? hahaha) is still far enough out that outlet store employees haven't heard anything more than we have.
I called knifecenter, since it could be a US evolution of their HAP40 pakkawood line.
Lady on the phone said that they first saw it at the USN gathering as well and that they aren't allowed to talk about it, not even to confirm or deny if it's an exclusive from them.
The way she explained it was really odd. Them "just finding out about" it sounds like it's not their exclusive, but her tone and word choice made it sound like it is. We'll have to wait a while longer to find out the truth of that one.
