Para 3 - BLACK FRN / PlainEdge
The best-selling Para 3 revolutionized the concept of the everyday-carry cutting tool by distilling Spyderco’s time-tested Para Military 2 into an ultra-compact package. Now this design takes another quantum leap forward by incorporating injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales, Spyderco’s high-traction Bi-Directional Texture pattern, and a streamlined version of their patented Compression Lock mechanism. This ultra-lightweight, open-backed handle construction reduces the knife’s weight by almost 30 percent compared to its G-10- handled counterparts. It is also home to a full-flat-ground blade crafted from CTS BD1N, a nitrogen-enriched high-carbon chromium steel that offers a superior balance of hardness, edge retention, and corrosion resistance. A generously sized lanyard hole and a reversible deep-pocket wire clip round out the Para 3 Lightweight’s features, providing left or right-side tip-up carry.
