Pros: Pocket Clip, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use
Great for lefties (and righties too)
As a left-handed person, I appreciate that because of the large hole in the blade, the Caly 3 is easy to open with the thumb of either hand. Opening is smooth, can be done one-handed, and with practice takes less than a second. Once open, it locks into place firmly and securely, with no wobble. I can close it safely with one hand too. The lock is equally ambidextrous. Closing is a bit slower, but most pocket knife owners are more concerned with a quick open than a quick close.I agree with other reviewer's comments about the blade being relatively easy to scratch. That said, you'd have to look close to see any scratches, assuming you care. I use my knifes, not look at them, so a few tiny scratches is no big deal to me.The blade is a little tricky to sharpen, but once sharp it's ridiculously so and stays that way for longer than lesser steels. As for the non-cutting edges of the knife being sharpish when the knife is new, that's true too. A few light swipes with 400-grit wet-and-dry sandpaper took care of that problem easily enough. To summarize, although the Caly 3 may falls short of glistening perfection, it still offers extremely high-quality, reliability, durability, light weight, sharpness, and ease of use. The price is a tad high, but not unreasonable given how good a knife this is and how long it's likely to last.
