Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

C229 Shaman

"Drawing inspiration from our iconic Native® folding knife, the Shaman offers the same advanced ergonomics and proven design dynamics in a larger, even more capable format. The soul of this impressive design is its CPM® S30V® stainless steel blade, which features a full-flat grind for outstanding edge geometry and an acute, utilitarian point. A fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ proudly announces its Spyderco lineage and ensures swift, reliable, one-handed opening with either hand.


The stonewash-finished blade is housed in an exceptionally refined, ergonomic handle built with nested skeletonized stainless steel liners and contoured matte-finished G-10 scales. This robust construction forms the foundation of the knife’s high-strength Compression Lock™ mechanism, which locks the blade securely open and allows safe, easy one-handed closing.


To ensure convenient carry and immediate access, a stonewashed four-position pocket clip offers left or right-side, tip-up or tip-down carry. Available with either a PlainEdge™ or fully serrated SpyderEdge™ blade, the Shaman offers powerful cutting magic in a stylish, user-friendly format."
