Oh and is the CF version slick CF like Knifecenter puts out?
I haven't had a KC CF knife or the CF Caly 3.5, but the old Caly3 CF I had was matte-finish, with almost a chalky feel. It's more comparable to the carbon on my tripods than any of the glossy stuff I've seen on other knives, but not rough at all like the peel-ply finishes used in Golden or Taichung.
I'm not sure if Moki has done other CF sprints, the best-known Japanese CF models are all Sakai (marked "Seki-City") I think, and they're glossy.
I highly recommend the Caly 3 and 3.5 if you can get one. They'd still be great cutters with FRN handles, but I like the weight of the G-10 and CF versions. The wire clip is an especially good reason to pick these over the Caly Jr, I haven't heard what clip the LW will have.
It's a very elegant design that deserves the refined feel IMO. I have a 3.5 in VG10 and Super Blue, and despite not having many of the qualities I usually look for in a design they're frequently in my pocket.
