A good folding knife should function and feel like a natural extension of the hand. A great one does that while looking like a million bucks. The Caly 3.5's carbon fiber handle positions the hand and fingers ergonomically for a comfortable and controlled grip. The blade has an internal core of exotic high-carbon ZDP-189 that is layered between two more pliable layers of 420J2 steel, creating a high performance, stunningly visual flat-ground, leaf-shaped blade. The core's ZDP-189 cutting edge has 3% Carbon for extended edge retention.

Classy
Great Knife. Very sharp as expected. Pretty slim in the pocket. The deep carry clip took some getting used to but its nice. I will only carry this to the office and out to fancy dinners. I have my hard use knives for the field. This will stay pampered as it should. Fit and finish are spot on. The thumb hole was sharp but am now used to it. Great looking blade. If you are thinking about purchasing this knife, you should do it. It is simple but impressive. Great piece of sharp steel.

Call 3.5 with ZDP-189
This is a very well made EDC folder that you will not be disappointed with. It has all the features that one would want for a pocket knife. The carbon fiber scales are really nice over the stainless steel liners. Economics of this knife is superb across the board, balance, smoothed surfaces, handle comfort, and hand placement. The weight and size to blade ratio are unsurpassed. My most favorite attribute of this knife is the blade design and shape. A perfect utility leaf style blade made with a wonderful San Mai steel laminate of ZDP-189/420J2. ZDP-189 is the premier blade steel available on the global market, so at the price point of this knife, it's a bargain. I believe that this knife will be discontinued as it shows it's not in stock at Spyderco. I highly recommend picking up one of these jewels while the ZDP-189 option is still available.

Sunday Carry
This is my " go to" knife every Sunday when I go to church. I carry it then because it's a knife I enjoy keeping in the best shape possible just due to how nice and pretty it is. It's a great slicing knife. Very thin behind the edge makes slicing through anything feel like silk. I have been a big fan of ZDP-189 steel a long time. And couldn't be happier with it. It's a thin knife overall. Makes it a great knife to carry as a gentleman's folder. But it is well put together and can accomplish the tasks of EDC without any problem whatsoever. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone interested. It is stiff at first. And it may have a " grittiness to it when you first get it." I found that it was steel dust from sanding from the assembly. And a drop or two of Nano oil fixed that INSTANTLY
