The Spyderco Shaman is a large and cool pocket knife, designed by Spyderco founder Sal Glesser. The Shaman has different characteristics you know from the previous Spyderco’s. At the same time the Shaman is very different within the range.
We start with the familiar: a blade with thumb hole, made from S30V steel with a stonewashed finish. The lock is taken care of by a solid compression lock. An invention from Sal Glesser himself. Seel liners that are enhanced with holes to keep the weight low with, around it, G10 handles.
And those G10 handles are exactly what give the Shaman its character. They are beautifully rounded and have a matt finish. They are large, have enough room for even very large hands, and are at the same time very ergonomic.
Because of it the Shaman has obtained its own place within the Spyderco range. A fascinating design that can be used as work knife. However, because of its interesting construction, ergonomics and lock this knife is also an absolute collector’s item which will be coveted by knife enthusiasts.
