I really like the aesthetics and ergonomics of the Caly 3, but of the 3 that I have owned, they have all had too much lock-rock.
Despite the flaw, I do miss my HAP40 version and still have the Superblue version.
I still hope that we get a HAP40 Caly 3.5 someday.
I think we've probably discussed this before but...I just checked my Caly 3 & 3.5 by pressing the edge in a block of wood. No real issues with either. I can feel a tiny bit of movement but it's not enough that I see the lock bars moving up and down. I have Seki lock backs that have more movement than either of my Calys. None of them or so bad that I detect the lock rock in use. I've never even felt movement when whittling wood. Non-issue for me
I definitely feel movement even when cutting regular cardboard, but your account is certainly reassuring for future Caly models I might own! Thank you for taking the time to check.
I ended up nearly eliminating the severe lock-rock from my Superblue Caly 3 by adding a couple of pieces of cartridge brass into the pivot area to take up the slop in the D shaped pivot/pivot hole. So, if I get another sloppy Caly, I now know how to fix it.
