Re: Caly 3 love?

The Caly love will come around again when the LW model is released. I would anticipate some K390 models and other steels that will put it into the spotlight. An issue has been some of the struggles finding makers that can produce the same quality.

With other steels out there I like better (K390) I would not gravitate to elmax because of t...

Re: Caly 3/3.5 interest Poll

The slimness and simplicity coupled with the ergos make me keep coming back to the Caly 3. Its not an intimidating knife for non-knife people.

Re: Elmax

S90V or K390 would be better for your purposes. K390 is not very corrosion resistant but it can cut.
