Received mine today as well. Looks incredible with near perfect fit and finish. Now it’s got me debating the Delica and or Dragonfly.
I've got both and they are beautiful! Plus I really like hap40 steel. They're among the few "will never sell" models in my collection. I've contemplated the ladybug many times. If the Police was a model I loved, I wouldn't hesitate to pay the premium for this version. I hope there are more models to come!

That looks great but the price seems very high. I believe the Endura went for $145 or so. I know the Police is a larger model but an $80 increase over the Endura seems a bit much.
The endura is available still (or again). Knifecenter does additional batches of popular exclusives (what a concept!). It's currently $168 but I don't know if they raised the price at some point.
I think prices went up across the board earlier this year.

Dang, that's not bad. Unfortunately, it's a bit out of my budget right now.

How about a Baby Horn in this combo?
This is an excellent suggestion for an exclusive.
I emailed them and said that we needed a Baby Horn and a Micro Dyad, haha.

I bought a Pakkawood Delica last year, some time around late winter/early spring and it was the same price as it is now. I would assume the Endura held steady as well, but can't say that with any confidence.

Anyway, this exclusive is calling my name. I still have a Police 4 G10 and use it a lot. I have enjoyed the Pakkawood knives very much and Hap40 is great stuff. Hopefully these scales don't smell like the Rex 45 Shaman exclusive did, because that would be a major deterrent for me. My Shaman still hasn't fully off-gassed. :(

What's better than a P4?








2 of them. :D

Those scales look great abbazaba! Just enough darker grain to stand out, but not be overdone.

The Pakkawood series doesn't have a strong phenol smell like the Shaman Dymondwood handles did. I have a delica in Pakkawood that I haven't noticed any smell with. I returned the Shaman because of the gassy phenol/hydrocarbon smell.

3 is an even better number! :D

Good to know that yours wasn't so stinky. Looks like I'll have to order one this weekend.

The Delica I bought didn't have a smell, but the Shaman did. With some people complaining about G10 models (Cat) smelling the same as the Dymondwood Shaman, I was hoping the complaints were just one-offs. Good to know the P4 is much less offensive.

For those of you who have this knife, I have a question for you. Do the scale screws screw into just the scales underneath? The reason I ask is I am thinking of getting the knife. My father is a skilled woodworker, and I would very much appreciate some scales from him. I just want to make sure that there is nothing "special" about the pakkawood scales.

I don't have the wood version, but it appears built the same as the G10 model. The screws don't screw into the scales on the G10 model so I think you'd be able to install custom scales.

Great. Thanks for the feedback.
