Yes. Before the Caly3 (and abbreviation of the name) there was a Calypso2 and Calypso1. No they didnít fade away or die. They were improved upon, becoming more functional and useful with each rendition. Like comparing the first Corvette to todayís Corvette, the latest Caly3 is an offshoot and tangible testament to the designís durability and sale-ability in the market. People continue buying the folder because Spyderco held true its original premise: A great folding knife should function and feel like a natural extension of the hand.

The Caly3CFP, with its high-end laminated ZDP-189 blade steel with a buffed carbon fiber handle is (yes) yet another variation of the knife that converted legions of knife buyers to the hard-use benefits of flat-ground leaf-shaped blades. ZDP-189 blade steel contains 3% carbon, making it harder, higher on the Rockwell scale and in turn extending the amount of time it stays sharp. The Caly3CFP comes with a PlainEdged that is ground flat for precise cutting. The handleís shape settles the index finger on the underside and thumb naturally above on the jimped (slip resistant) spine so the knife feels like part of the hand with controlled grip and no forward or backward slide while cutting. Ambidextrous deep-pocket-carry tip-up wire clip. Mid-positioned backlock.

Gentleman folder
elijah g.
This is my fancy folder I wear it when I wear a suit or dress pants.
The pocket clip has no snag point which is great so I donít have to worry about it catching on the pants or jacket
Another Essential Spyderco Knife

I bought this knife after watching several reviews on YouTube, and I couldn't be happier with my decision! The Caly 3 is the perfect size for me; I can't even feel it in my pocket. The carbon fiber handle scales are beautiful, the lockup is perfect (no play whatsoever), dead-on blade-centering, and a wonderful pocket clip. The blade arrived extremely sharp! This knife is very comfortable to grip, with perfect jimping on the thumb ramp. The Spydie hole provides smooth deployment as well. The Caly 3 is well worth the price, especially considering the high-quality blade steel. Don't hesitate to purchase this knife!
