Para 3 - TEAL FRN / S90V
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 C223PTBL Para 3 features a full-flat ground PlainEdge blade machined from an ultra-high performance Crucible CPM S90V Stainless steel enriched with Vanadium content that promotes the formation of hard vanadium carbides instead of chromium carbides, increasing the steel’s wear resistance and edge-holding properties while leaving additional free chromium available to enhance corrosion resistance. The full-flat ground for exceptional edge geometry and features a Trademark Round Hole for swift, ambidextrous, one-handed opening. 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.
