The Shaman is one of the best folders I've ever owned, period.
Got the Shaman in S30V and I smile every time I bring it out to play. It's not small, but feels compact and very well-built. The feel is superb with no hot spots and cutting with it is gratifying. The Shaman feels less like a knife you're holding, and more a natural extension of your hand...it's so good. Flipping it open is satisfying (addicting actually), and so is closing it easily with one hand. The index choil makes fine work seem effortless. I love this knife. I'm a collector and it will be with me until the end of time. Please release this orange/rex version asap! (I have 13 Spyderco folders and the Shaman is my favorite btw)
