Description

Spyderco’s best-selling Para 3 folding knife distilled all the key qualities of their time-tested Para Military™ 2 model into an ultra-compact, carry-friendly format. Now this groundbreaking design takes another quantum leap forward by incorporating injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales and a streamlined version of Spyderco’s Compression Lock® mechanism to create the Para 3 Lightweight.

Almost 30 percent lighter than its G-10-handled counterparts, the Para 3 Lightweight boasts linerless, open-backed construction and Spyderco’s high-traction Bi-Directional Texture™ pattern for a secure grip. A stainless steel lock bar inset into the handle’s interior forms the foundation of its sturdy lock mechanism, while keeping the overall weight to an absolute minimum. The knife’s full-flat-ground blade is crafted from CTS® BD1N, a nitrogen-enriched high-carbon chromium steel that offers a superior balance of hardness, edge retention, and corrosion resistance.

Available with PlainEdge™ cutting edge, the blade features a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ for quick, one-handed opening with either hand. A generously sized lanyard hole and a reversible deep-pocket wire clip round out its impressive features, providing discreet left or right-side tip-up carry and allowing the easy attachment of fobs or lanyards.

Don't let the "Lightweight" part scare you away from this knife. This Para 3 is built with a beefy 3.7mm blade stock in high quality CTS BD1N blade steel that sports fantastic edge retention. Its "FRN" scales are well known to be incredibly tough, provide excellent grip and are thin so the knife does not feel bulky in your pocket.

The incredibly smooth action, along with the fidget factor of the compression lock (awesome one handed operation) make this an Adventure Carry favourite.
