First Impressions: Spyderco Caly3 CF ZDP-189/420J2

So my early birthday present from my fiance came in a few days ago, she got it off Amazon for $105 + free shipping (The price has since gone up to $117 but still with free shipping). As this is my first Spyderco I was wondering what to expect, the local gun shop had a Sage 1 CF and I was thinking the Caly3 would have the same textured carbon fiber, but sadly it does not. That is probably my biggest complaint about the knife (And it's purely a matter of opinion, the carbon on the Caly3 is AWESOME, just sanded smooth). Ok, with that out of the way, I want to address the bad:
 1. Blade upper (420J2 Steel) scratches easily, very soft steel.
