The Para 3 was designed by Spyderco to meet a demand for a smaller version of the cornerstone Para Military 2 and is now being offered in a svelte, budget friendly, Lightweight FRN Version! The same excellent Compression Lock design gets contoured Bi-Directional FRN scales, a deep carry wire pocket clip and fully flat ground blade. Sure to be a favorite among users and collectors alike, this version comes with a satin finished blade of Spyderco's proprietary CPM-SPY27 and Cobalt Blue FRN handles.

Brand new, direct from Spyderco Knives, USA.

Blade: The fully flat ground, satin finished CPM-SPY27 blade has an iconic Clip Point profile with a plain edge for general slicing needs. The blade opens with the trademark SpyderHole opener and jimping at the thumb and choil provide superb control. At 3.7 mm thick the blade is robust enough for serious work while still offering excellent slicing performance thanks to the flat grind and taper to the point.

Handle: Contoured, injection molded Cobalt Blue FRN handle scales sit over the inset stainless liner that forms the Compression Lock mechanism. The use of Fiberglass-Reinforced Nylon (FRN) decreases the weight by nearly 30 percent while still maintaining a high level of durability and resistance to the elements. A slight belly and finger choil offer comfortable ergonomics allowing for a great grip for most sized hands with the Bi-Directional texturing delivers optimal traction even in the most adverse conditions. Torx screw handle construction allows for easy adjustment and the open back construction makes cleaning and maintenance a breeze. A generous hole is provided for lanyard attachment.

Carries via a reversible (tip-up) stainless steel wire deep carry clip.

CPM-SPY27: Produced by Crucible exclusively for Spyderco (SPY), CPM SPY27 is a high cobalt (atomic number 27) steel similar to S35VN. The resulting steel is expected to have similar hardness and corrosion resistance to S30V and S35VN with better toughness and sharpening response.
