Para 3 - Orange FRN / CTS-XHP
This Exclusive version of the Spyderco Para 3 Lightweight was specially produced and features a blade, which is precision machined from Carpenter® Technology Corporation’s premium CTS XHP blade steel. CTS XHP is an air-hardening, high-carbon, high-chromium alloy that can be described as either a high-hardness 440C stainless steel or a corrosion-resistant D2 tool steel. As a blade material, it offers superior edge retention and surface finish and can be sharpened to a very fine edge. It is also extremely resistant to corrosion and easy to maintain.
The handle of this Exclusive Para 3 also showcases high-visibility orange scales. Injection molded from tough fiberglass-reinforced nylon (FRN), they include Bi-Directional Texturing for a secure, non-slip grip and are home to the knife’s streamlined Compression Lock mechanism.
