    I think the Caly 3,5 and Sage are better slicers. But they are marginally better, not noticeably.

    With that said, the Delica is still my "go to" food slicer, it's easier to clean.

    I get along just fine left handed with all my spydies. Somewhere over the years you just got used to it. I normally just use two hands to close it, except for the Manix XL, which closes nicely left...

    The Harpy and your other PEs are more or less opposites.

    The PEs are good at slicing and clean cuts. Basic use is by pushing.
    The Harpy is good at ripping. Basic use is by pulling.

    My first Spydercos were a matching Foliage Green Endura and Delica. I really liked them. But later, I picked up a pair that were FFG, and they made better EDCs.

    Everyone should have a Delica.

    Then; everyone should have a ZDP Caly 3.5 !!!

    Notice, I said a Caly 3.5. The handle is almost the same size as the Caly 3 in your pocket, but you get 1/2" more...

    I keep my Ladybug on the desk in my home office. I actually use it 80% of the time at home. For bigger jobs I reach in the drawer for a bigger knife.

    It's nice to know they have great customer service.

    It's also great that with 11 knives I have never had a need for customer service. :)

    Coach,

    I still rate the Caly scales a 10.

    The Sage 1 scales only look better on the Sage 1, they aren't right for the Caly's personality.
    Of course, the Caly scales would not work well on the...

    The only AO knife I own is a Kershaw Blur. Once I get my thumb positioned on the stud, which has a sharp edge, and push it the blade opens lightning fast.

    I'm also for FRN/FFG.

    The SS looks a little nicer, but nothing holds in your hand like FRN.

    If you want a smaller blade, it's little brother is the Delica.

    Sal,

    The reason I didn't take your kind offer is that I love this knife. Finding out the CF is laminated doesn't change my mind.

    It is a good knife, at a good price. No complaints.

    Mahmer09,

    What you just did was re-create the basic edge geometry, and make it equal on both sides. That is "reprofiling". You used 150 grit sandpaper, and I use the 120 grit diamond rods.

    I had the same problem with my Sage 1. I needed to reprofile the edge.

    Evil,

    I did use the sharpie, that was what told me to use the diamond rods to fix the left edge.

    To others that recommended a 40 degree micro bevel. That seems like a good idea.

    Actually, I'm not sure the edge retention on my two has been all that much better than my CPM S30V knives. But, the Caly 3.5 is definitely one fine knife.

    ZDP Hard to Sharpen

    I had to go to the diamond rods to redo the left edge angle. After that, it took three trips through Medium, Fine, and...
