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 Limited Run Distributor Exclusive version comes with a satin finished blade of CPM-S90V and Teal FRN handles.

Brand new, direct from MGE. Made by Spyderco Knives, USA.

Blade: The fully flat ground, satin finished CPM-S90V 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 Teal 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-S90V: A unique tool steel made using the Crucible Particle Metallurgy process, CPM S90V offers substantial improvements in edge retention over 440C and D2, and other high chromium steels, with corrosion resistance equal to or better than 440C. S90V is an excellent choice where wear and corrosion resistance are key.
