The award-winning Para 3 Lightweight is rapidly redefining the state of the art in ultralight cutting tools. For tactical end users who prefer subdued blade finishes, this revolutionary design is now available with a stealthy black Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating.
Its PlainEdge™ blade is full-flat ground from CTS® BD1N stainless steel and supported by a streamlined version of Spyderco’s signature Compression Lock® mechanism. To complement the blade’s finish, the screws and reversible deep-pocket carry clip on its injection-molded, fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handle also sport a non-reflective black coating.
The fiberglass reinforced nylon handles come moulded with Bi-Directional Texturing™ for traction and improved ergonomics.
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 favoroute.
