Para 3 - M4 / Mint Green FRN
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. This exclusive features a full-flat-ground blade expertly crafted from Crucible CPM M4—one of the premier steels for top-quality custom blades and knives used in competitive cutting, CPM-M4 is a special purpose high speed steel produced by the particle metallurgy process. Its advanced alloy composition, high vanadium content, and extremely fine grain structure give it exceptional wear resistance and toughness—properties that translate to outstanding edge retention and impact resistance in knife blades.
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.
