SP11WDP: C11WDP Delica 4 Pakkawood
The Spyderco Delica 4 is one of their all-time classics, masterfully crafted with precise blades and ergonomic handles. Engineered exclusively for KnifeCenter, this version is equipped with mahogany Pakkawood scales and a high performance tri-laminate HAP40 blade steel with SUS410 stainless outer layers. Not only does this knife look great, it is also built to perform!

HAP40 is a PM-process high speed tool steel providing exceptional toughness and abrasion resistance… key qualities of a superior blade steel. To provide extra corrosion resistance, the HAP40 core is sandwiched by SUS410 stainless steel. The transition can be seen along the side of the blade, and things will only get better as you use the knife; the HAP40 layer will patina over time and provide striking contrast to the stainless layers.

The Pakkawood material that makes up the scales combines the durability and stability of a phenolic laminate with the rich beauty of natural wood. Unlike natural wood, you won't have to worry so much about Pakkawood shrinking, expanding, or cracking. It is also much better suited to moisture than standard woods. Full stainless steel liners, backspacer, and lock back complete this durable little knife. A David Boye dent on the lock release makes it less susceptible to accidental disengagement.

The Spyderco Delica is a classic for a reason. The slim handle still affords a full grip when open. An integrated thumb ramp with jimping affords the user excellent control when pressing the knife into hard work.

The satin finished blade rotates open easily thanks to Spyderco's signature opening hole. The Delica is an exceptional slicer thanks to its full flat grind, preferred by many for its cutting efficiency. A fantastic option for EDC, this exclusive Spyderco also comes with an four-position stainless steel clip, allowing for a multitude of carry options.

A remarkable expression of the Delica 4 design, this KnifeCenter Exclusive is sure to become a highly prized collector's item.

Pros: Handle Material, None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
Beautiful but...
Beautiful knife but, very stiff action. Also as other's have stated very sharp edges where there shouldn't be sharp edges. No lanyard hole???? Very unlike Spyderco. Not worth the premium $$$$

Pros: Blade Material, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, None
Great fit, terrible finish
The tolerances on the knife are amazing, and it came hair shaving sharp. Unfortunately, the knife came pretty much unfinished. The back of the knife was sharp enough to cut, as well as the Spidie-hole,as well as the edges of the liners. The action was so bad I had to pry the knife open with two hands. I ended up taking the knife apart and discovered that the liners still had machining marks. I then spent about two hours with 1000 grit sandpaper on curved edges (including the hole), and whetstone on flat edges and the face of the liners. Now the edges are no longer hazardous, and the action is merely stiff instead of being unusable, and I expect that will work in. I still give it 3 stars because the fit is truly amazing, but be aware that you will likely have to do what I did to make it usable.

Outstanding model of Outstanding model Spyderco.
This Delica Pakkawood with Hap40 core is an excellent variation of the famous Spyderco Delica. I owned, used and sharpened many hundreds of knives over the past 60 years. Currently, I own about 40 Spyderco's alone, including the similar sized Sage and Chaparral. The Para Military2 in several variations is my all around favorite knife. Only this year did I purchase my first Delica, and it has become an immediate favorite for its niche. It is small enough to comply with the 3 inch limit of nearby jurisdictions, comfortable in the hand and large enough to be functional for most tasks. For me, the Delica is best used simply dropped in the pocket without a clip. This Pakkawood Exclusive is an outstanding gentleman's pocket folder for any occasion. It is stiff which will smooth out over time. I have grown to like the locking mechanism, and one hand opening and closing is easy for me on my other Delicas. This one is much stiffer. The design of the steel liners is good, but compared to the four other Delicas I own the fit, finish, smoothness and blade grind were not as well done on the Pakkawood speciman that I got. That was greatly helped with a full strip and couple-hour full hand honing and polishing of all parts, including the flats of the blade. But, this is not a custom knife, and so maybe that is to be expected. The wood color variation on the one that I got is a very nice mixture of light and dark. Normally, for regular tasks I, carry the Delica ZDP189 with British Green along with a Para Mil2, but for dress up, this Pakkawood with Hap 40 is so much nicer. Both steels are made by Hitachi with their modern Particle Metallurgy process and can produce an exceptionally fine hair-splitting edge. This model is slightly heavier, but that extra weight feels good. On mountain hikes, it would stay behind in favor of the ZDP189 model though. If i could only own one knife, and it had to meet the 3 inch limitation, it might very well be this model Delica.
