    Should I get a caly 3 super blue?????

    I was wondering should I pick up a caly 3 in super blue at a price I'm willing to pay for it? I love my g10 caly 3.5 and I want it's smaller partner just don't know if I should go for this.

    If the price is right, get it. Should you not care for the size once you get it in hand, it should be fairly easy to sell and get your full investment back. I suspect you just might like it, however.

    I hope I do like it and thanks for the recommendation I love my delica blade length but the caly 3.5 Handel fits my hand better so hopefully I get best of both worlds

    If you have a chance to get one now and can afford it, I'd say go for it. They are becoming harder to find by the day...

    If you can afford it, get it. It could almost be said that if you can get a Spyderco ________________ in Superblue, you should get it (that's just my crazy opinion).

    I love my Caly 3.5 SB, but miss the half inch of blade when I pull out the 3" version.

    Before anyone gives you any grief on the price, let me assure you that the satisfaction that you'll get from that Super Blue Caly3 will remain lonnnnng after the price has been forgotten.

    thank you

    the reason I bought it was because A. I wanted this B. I think for a new caly3 sub from a sprint run 2 yrs ago it is worth it and C. I wanted a caly three and a solid piece of super blue instead of the laminates of frn sprints( not that laminate is bad I just want to compare the 2).

    I tend to base secondary price on street value on release. So if I can pick one up for a little less than street for one gently used, I've done well. If its a desirable sprint, ill look for one around street price or 10% more.

    I also leave my SB 3 in the drawer in favor of the 3.5.

    I've been looking for a Super Blue Caly 3 forever. Thanks for the tip on Bento Box. Never heard of them, but just ordered a SB Caly 3!
