Spyderco Calypso Jr. Burgundy FRN
Spyderco persistently pushes the envelope searching for, and testing higher performance blade steels. ZDP-189 is our latest offering and is rapidly asserting itself as an up-and-coming steel. ZDP-189 steel is a Japanese manufactured powdered metal with phenomenal chemistry and 3% carbon. As a result, ZDP-189's hardness measures high on the Rockwell scale and its edge retention is exceptional. The C52PBRG Calypso Jr.'s blade has a thin layer of ZDP-189 steel sandwiched between two layers of 420J2. Layering provides the flexibility and sharpening ease associated with 420J2 while the ZDP-189 layer brings the benefits of exotic high carbon steel. The Calypso Jr. comes with a FRN burgundy handle that is Bi-Directionally Textured(r) into a multi-level fish scale pattern, enhancing "grip without slip". The clothing clip is embellished with a gold Spyderco bug logo and attaches with three screws to either side of the handle for right- and left-handers. Limited piece run, available for a short time. PlainEdge blade only. Discontinued Product - No Longer Available.
