The Para 3 takes all the proven features and benefits of Spyderco's best-selling Para Military™2 and blends them into an even more compact all-purpose cutting tool.
Its three-inch blade is precision machined from premium CPM® S45VN stainless steel and features a full-flat grind for a superior balance of strength, point utility, and low-friction cutting performance. It includes a textured index finger choil and thumb ramp that provide a solid purchase for a forward grip and offer enhanced control during precise cutting tasks.
The blade's signature Trademark Round Hole™ brands it as a member of the Spyderco family and is fully accessible to allow quick, positive, one-handed opening with either hand.
The Para 3 is slim and pocket-friendly with its lightweight, open-backed construction style. To keep the Para 3 slim and pocket friendly, it features a lightweight, open-backed construction style, and its stainless steel liners are nested into machined recesses in the textured G-10 scales. This reduces the handle thickness and provides excellent structural support for the knife's Compression Lock®. Located in the spine of the handle, this high-strength mechanism locks the blade securely open during use yet allows it to be closed quickly and safely with only one hand.
A four-position hourglass clip and an oversized lined lanyard hole complete the design, offering ambidextrous tip-up or tip-down carry and allowing the easy attachment of fobs and lanyards.
