Spyderco has several knife designs that sell well year after year. These classic CLIPITs® are in high demand due to their functionality, quality of manufacture, proven reliable and high-performance track record. Keeping these classics updated, Spyderco frequently upgrades them with new different blade steel and handle materials.

The Calypso is one of the classic mainstays that spawned numerous variations and converted legions of knife buyers to the benefits of flat-ground, thick leaf-shaped blades.

The Calypso progeny is a larger version of the original three-inch bladed Calypso Jr., featuring a three and one-half inch blade. Available now in a premium variant is the Caly 3.5 with a ZDP-189 blade and carbon fibre handle. The leaf-shaped blade is made of three layers of steel.

The core is high carbon ZDP-189 Japanese powdered steel; the outer laminated layers are softer, pliable 420J2 steel. The blade is full-flat ground with a PlainEdge that passes effortlessly through the material.

It comes with a grey carbon fibre handle and a mid-positioned back-lock. Its low-seated wire clip designed for right-hand deep-pocket, tip-up carry.

The Caly3.5 ZDP-189 manages to combine beauty and functionality into a new Spyderco classic.
