    If this is what we can expect going forward (in terms of pricing) I think I'm just going to bite the bullet and order a Police 4 at the current price and call it quits for a while.

    That should put the finishing touches on my "needs" in regard to patterns and high end steels that have captured my fancy. (At least until something irresistible comes along.)

    Phew...

    ^ Speaking of the Police 4, i was surprised to see the new lightweight is in VG-10. Assumed it would be K390.

    Back on subject, I too was surprised at the price level of this sprint. Still looking fwd to the Crucarta.

    K390 on the Police is coming with a different color FRN.

    Would be interested in seeing such variations, though I am pretty happy with my g10 K390 P4 - it is not heavy at all for such a big folder and g10 + liners make it strong enough to my liking, not feeling any flexing that otherwise on FRN spydercos. Unless the LW version is significantly cheaper, I see no reason for me to go that route. Am skipping the vg-10 LW P4, though at a bit over $100 it is a good price.

    Is this a sprint run or a standard production?

    I'm pretty sure it's a sprint.

    Gonna try my first Shaman with this one. Figure if I don't like it would be easier to move. My concern is if feels heavy or chunky. With CF my hope is it will feel lighter.

    I'd like one, but that price rules it out for me.

    Will Blade HQ will publish a release date and time for this a week or so in advance?

    WHATTTTT!!!!??!!!! I had no idea these already released :(

    I see DLT says coming soon, Knife-Center has a pre-order.

    Has it officially released everywhere? I had no idea. Going to be real bummed if I can't snag one.

    I would think they will be for sale next week as I see the Spyderco Collectors Club has already received the S90v CF Shaman a couple of days ago

    There's a seller on the auction site who listed 10 last night and as of now hasn't sold any. Have we found the upper limit on pricing?

    I don't think you will have a problem with that seller; I've never heard of anyone having a problem with them. And given that they are selling at MAP, I am guessing they are an authorized dealer held to the same rules as other authorized dealers.

    They're slowing showing up at different dealers. I snagged one at smkw while they had some, it's on its way now. Just keep a keen eye out at different dealers

    Man I hate that I may of missed this one. Messaged DLT to see if they're getting any or they already sold out. Need to get one. All sites appear to be OOS right now.
