Figured I'd post a few pictures of the Caly Jr, a fantastic knife in my opinion. These are little touches that blow me away and things I'd wish Spyderco would implement on some of their current knives. Attention to detail.
Starting with the handle. Fish-scale texture feels fantastic in the hand. Not sharp at all, but feels finished and grips as well as anything out there. No liners needed, the FRN provides strength without weight. This isn't a knife for heavy jobs, but a slimmed down pocket scalpel. Nothing unneeded.
Moving to the spine of the blade. Not sure why, but Spyderco beveled this as well. I think it's a great touch. Not sure what purpose it serves, I would think the weight loss is negligible. However, adds a finished appearance to the knife that few others have and feels great to the touch and in the pocket.
And one of the most eye-catching features I think is the bug, inset in the blade and painted gold. I think this continues the Caly Jr's theme of an elegant knife with such a fine finish. Also worth mentioning is the lamination line. The use of ZDP on such a thinly ground blade turns this knife into a super slicer.
I enjoy carrying a Spyderco daily, but on days when this little gem finds its way into my pocket I love it that much more. The only thing I've got to worry about is which knife I'll be carrying tomorrow, the Caly Jr or the SB Caly 3.5.
