I agree with Felix. VG10 is my favorite Stainless Steel.
Right up there with CPM440V, IMHO.
I enjoy the daylights out of using knives with those two steels.
And now a mini-review:
The Calypso Lt.wt. Jr. is one helluva fine little using knife. Other than having Zytel for handle material, I can find nothing to fault this knife with. And even the Zytel handle is done right with the fishscale patterning and thickness of the Zytel used.
The metal clip screw inserts are a very thoughtful touch that allow this knife to be changed from right to left hand carry as often as the user wishes without fear of trashing the threads.
The handle is quite comfortable and secure in the grip during use. The knife was designed in such a way as to allow the user to choke up on the blade some for delicate cutting chores.
There is a little recess on the lock bar that helps prevent accidentally unlocking the folder when gripped tightly. A nice addition.
And finally, the black clip with the gold Spyder logo gives this way
folder class act appeal. For a Zytel folder, this Calypso Jr. ROCKS!
My new bumper sticker:
Let me tell you about my SIFU!
