Email straight from knifecenter to everyone saying it's Dymonwood and not real rosewood, asking if people want to cancel because of that

Good on them for the correction, and for letting people back out if they want to. I'm still in.

Definitely still in. Diamondwood is much more my cup of tea than solid wood. Now I won’t have to worry about swapping the scales :D .

Does dymondwood feel more like plastic or more like wood? I've never had a knife with them

It is basically plywood. It can be polished like a gun stock or left more natural like the previous pakkawood exclusives which had a wood like feel.

Just curious, who makes dymondwood now? Didn’t Rutland Plywood burn down in 2014 and never opened again? They were the original makers of it.

I agree! Their honesty and reaching out to everyone that had placed an order for this knife, makes me want it even more. That's great customer service right there and I have no problem backing that up with my wallet.

Hi everyone -

I see that many of you have already received an email from us, but for those of you who didn't place a pre-order, I wanted to clear up our mistake:

It has come to our attention that the KnifeCenter Exclusive Spyderco Shaman was incorrectly listed as having rosewood as the handle material. The handle scales are actually composed of Dymondwood: a laminate material composed of thin layers of American Birch stabilized with phenolic resins. This material is optimal for knife handles in that it retains the beauty of wood but is incredibly stable and will not warp or absorb moisture. We understand that it is not solid rosewood and do not want to sell it to you under false pretenses.

We apologize for the confusion. For those who did pre-order the knife, we leave it to you to decide if you still want the knife or would prefer to cancel your order. You can respond to the email we sent, or call us during East Coast business hours at 1.800.338.6799. We would appreciate a response by January 24, 2020 so we can sell the product to others waiting for it.

Thank you and again, we apologize for this situation.

Seth V - KnifeCenter

Dymondwood/pakkawood feels like very fine finished satin plastic - you don't really feel the wood grain - I happen to like it a lot

How does it wear though? When it gets nicks, does it start chunking? I guess one shouldn't drop it

Knife center has let me down so many times I dont know what to think. Problem is they have good exclusives, but it's a crap shoot every time. With the micarta shaman I pre ordered immediatley and got screwed over...luckily I was on multiple lists and grabbed one.

Asked for a pakkawood shaman Jan 20th 2018...now that its here I probably wont get one....I know I know patience grasshopper...I like to know I'm in control of my purchases but with kc, they are...if I could pre order I wouldn't cause I've been burned so many times. They need to get it together.

For what it's worth. I sure like mine. I have one of each of the Shaman sprints and exclusives. I know I' partial because I designed the model, but I must confess, I like them all.

Were these sold through preorder only and are sold out already? No actual drop when they have knives in hand?
