Shaman® Orange G-10 CTS XHP Black Blade Exclusive
C229GORBK OUT OF STOCK
This elite knife was produced for and available exclusively through Cutlery Shoppe (www.CutleryShoppe.com) and their sales channels.
The first defining feature of this Shaman is its blade, which is precision machined from Carpenter® Technology Corporation's premium CTS® XHP blade steel. CTS XHP is an air-hardening, high-carbon, high-chromium alloy that is best described as either a high-hardness 440C stainless steel or a corrosion-resistant D2 tool steel. As a blade material, it offers superior edge retention and surface finish and can be sharpened to a very fine edge. It is also extremely resistant to corrosion and easy to maintain. The PlainEdge™ blade of this knife is full-flat ground for superior edge geometry and proudly includes a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ for swift, ambidextrous, one-handed opening. It is also cloaked in a handsome black Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating.
In keeping with Cutlery Shoppe's signature style, the handle of this Exclusive Shaman features high-visibility orange G-10 scales. Precision machined to offer a comfortable, contoured grip, they are also home to nested stainless steel liners. The stonewashed liners provide impressive structural strength and serve as the heart of the knife's sturdy Compression-Lock® mechanism. A four-position hourglass clip supports all carry preferences, offering a choice of tip-up or tip-down, left or right-side positioning. To complement the blade's DLC coating, the clip and all other handle hardware also sport matching black coatings.
Proudly offering a distinctive combination of features, this Cutlery Shoppe Exclusive version of the Spyderco Shaman is sure to please both collectors and discriminating end users alike.
