The Spyderco Shaman is a popular new big “hard use” folding knife with handsome contoured g10 scales, a proven compression lock, and a stout leaf blade. However, there are some design issues which to me make the knife problematic. In this review I cover the things I like about the knife as well as pointing out what I see as flaws and problems in the current design, and then I make comparison to a variety of other knives which I feel like are equally or better up to the task a being a hard-use larger knife.
