    Anyone have an idea when a Shaman sprint run will be coming out? Will it likely be in a high carbon steel like M4?

    Sounds like they are trying to decide between CF/S90V and Micarta/Cruwear. I vote for the latter.

    Likewise! I’d have no purpose for a S90v version of this knife, but would probably sell my current Shaman to buy a high carbon steel one.

    Micarta would be cool too!

    I would be down for either one. CF and s90v would be phenomenal, but more costly I would assume. But man, a micarta Cruwear would be like nothing else I have. Tough call. I don’t envy whoever it is that has to make that decision.

    There's an active thread on the subject over on Spyderco's own forum.

    To quote Sal, "...Eric's leaning, CF with a super steel like S90V or S110V. It's up for discussion now. Though I must admit, having carried a Shaman quite a bit, I'd like one in Cruwear and brown canvas Micarta."

    I vote for brown micarta and cruwear. Less common and less expensive than CF/S110V.

    Easily cruwear.

    Don’t really like this model with 110v in mind.

    There was a poll/ vote on one of the forums. The forum choice was Micarta Cruwear combo. If it becomes a reality is another thing altogether. But someone (maybe Sal?) said that the dealers watch our threads closely so there's a chance that if Spyderco themselves don't initiate it, a dealer could order a Sprint version.

    **Your mileage may vary. Not valid in all 50 states. The Surgeon General warns that playing/collecting with knives may lead to fun, which is a leading cause of Spyderco obsession. See participating Spyderco fanboy(s) for details.

    I could get down with micarta and cruwear, or Rex 45 would be rad.

    Cruwear seems to lend itself to the Shaman as it's a hard-use type knife, as does micarta. I'd be all over that combo. I don't like S90V or S110V, and generally won't even consider a knife in either due to their tendencies to chip.

    Yep, Cruwear and Micarta all the way. Id prefer green, burgundy, denim, or black micarta over the light brown that was suggested, but id still buy a brown one if that is what it ended up with.

    Cruwear, Will get my money too. Some grippy micarta would be nice. Burgundy or grren as requested above sounds like a great colour choice

    Cruwear and Micarta, please.

    CF and s90v has been done 100 times and doesn’t fit the knife anyways in my opinion.
