The Blade: The Calypso Jr. sports the classic Spyderco leaf shaped blade with a full flat grind and subtle, full length top swedge. The blade on this Sprint Run is Aogami Super Blue Steel, Hitachi’s Top Tier Carbon Steel that utilizes the same high quality iron sand used to craft legendary Japanese swords. An 11mm SpyderHole offers smooth, ambidextrous opening of the blade.
The Handle: In keeping with the Super Blue Sprints of the past the Calypso Jr. has a gray FRN handle with the original ‘Fish Scale’ pattern texturing for both visual appeal and traction in hand. A Boye Dent equipped Mid-Back Lock delivers solid and secure lock up and an original Spyderco 3-Hole clip is set up for reversible, tip-down carry making the Calypso Jr. fully ambidextrous.
Aogami Super Blue: Super Blue is an alloyed high carbon steel that is capable of achieving a very high hardness and delivering the highest wear resistance of Hitachi’s high carbon steels. This knife takes a wickedly sharp edge and is able to hold a very thin edge for optimal cutting performance. Care is require to prevent corrosion and a unique patina will form over time with use.
About Sprint Runs: Each year Spyderco releases a limited number of Sprint run knives, with a variation on an established model. These knives are produced in limited quantities (usually 600 or 1200 pieces) and are highly sought after by collectors. This is a great way for users to purchase an out of production favorite, or a regular line item with a new twist. We recommend acting fast on these knives, as some models sell out fast!
