    At the Spyderco booth at Blade they told me it would be a long time before the Cruwear/Micarta version comes out. :(

    I just unboxed the Shaman Carbon fiber. I can't stand the way that guard pinches me on the closing of blade. For $ 300.00 I can find a knife that suits me better. I collect and have lots of Spyderco's of all different styles and flavors. I cant get around that guard pinch. Otherwise a pretty knife. It did come really stiff and I could have fixed that, which would have help with some of the pinch. That nub just ruins the compression lock experience for me. I will return and someone else can enjoy it.

    The S90V blade is tough, to beat!

    Hi Nicholas,

    Welcome to our forum.

    It's not really a "pinch", but more of a light touch. It's a nice piece and you might try to extend the effort to tolerate the touch?

    Forgive my ignorance as I've never handled a Shaman but I'm confused on what exactly is pinching you?

    The compression lock on my G10 Para 3's pinch me if closed a certain way. Is this what you're referring to?
