Spyderco Para 3 Lightweight

Spyderco Para 3 Lightweight Plain
Para 3

Spyderco’s best-selling Para 3 folding knife distilled all the essential qualities of their time-tested Para Military™ 2 model into an ultra-compact, carry-friendly format.

This groundbreaking design takes another quantum leap forward by incorporating injection-moulded fibreglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales and a streamlined version of Spyderco’s Compression Lock® mechanism to create the Para 3 Lightweight.

Almost 30 per cent lighter than its G-10-handled counterparts, the Para 3 Lightweight boasts linerless, open-backed construction and Spyderco’s high-traction Bi-Directional Texture™ pattern for a secure grip. A stainless steel lock bar inserts into the handle’s interior forms the foundation of its sturdy lock mechanism while keeping the overall weight to an absolute minimum. The knife’s full-flat-ground blade is crafted from CTS® BD1N - a nitrogen-enriched high-carbon chromium steel that offers a superior balance of hardness, edge retention, and corrosion resistance.

Available with a choice of PlainEdge™ or fully serrated SpyderEdge™ cutting edges, the blade features a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ for quick, one-handed opening with either hand.

A generously sized lanyard hole and a reversible deep-pocket wire clip round out its impressive features, providing discreet left or right-side tip-up carry and allowing the easy attachment of fobs or lanyards.
