Produced in various forms from 1997-2007, the Calypso Jr. is a true Spyderco classic. This remarkable resurrection of that design showcases its blade, which is crafted from high-performance Aogami Super Blue tool steel. The pinnacle of Hitachi’s three premium-grade high-carbon steels, Aogami Super Blue combines the same superior quality iron sand used to craft legendary Japanese swords with high-tech alloys to create a steel capable of extreme sharpness and edge retention. This knife’s blade is full-flat ground and satin finished for low-friction cutting performance and features a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ for swift, ambidextrous, one-handed opening.
Like the previous members of Spyderco’s elite Super Blue family, this knife features the distinctive blue/gray handle color that is a signature of this elite breed. The handle is injection molded from tough, lightweight fiberglass-reinforced nylon (FRN) and has our Bi-Directional Texturing™ pattern to ensure a non-slip grip. Four sets of threaded inserts molded directly into the scales support the knife’s four-position clip, which allows all possible carry positions. Together with a sturdy back lock mechanism, these features make all aspects of the knife’s carry, deployment, and operation completely ambidextrous.
An extraordinary expression of a true Spyderco classic, this limited-edition Sprint Run of the Calypso Jr. is certain to become a coveted collector’s item.
