  • Four-position pocket clip and a lanyard hole provides numerous carry options.
  • Natural G-10 handle offers heightened comfort and grip strength.

Awesome knife
Joffre M.
Great shape, color, and material. I love it.
Digging this one!
David R.
I originally tried for the first m4 natural g10 in satin but was too late. So when I saw this was being released and got it- glad I got it! Love the black and natural g10! This is my first para 3 -I have the paramilitary 2 but I'm actually enjoying the feel of the 3 more. Great knife - couldn't be more pleased
Sweet knife
Corey B.
This is my first spyderco knife and man it looks even better in person blade is perfect and very sharp, itís a little tight and wonít quite flick out but Iím fine with that. I want to put this one away in the safe but itís gonna be hard too not carry this baby!
There'll never be another one like it
David K.
I know when I saw the satin M4 Para 3 that I had to wait until the DLC one came out. I'm glad I did. The centering is about 99%, but the blade doesn't seem to be rubbing against the liners which is important or I'd return it and get another one. When opening, it has that notorious and satisfying "click" that only a compression lock gives. I love the blade pivot screws and clip to compliment the blade.

The jade/natural G10 handles feel wonderful in hand, along with the superb jimping that only Spyderco does. From what I've read, this is one of the most advanced steels on the market today. Some say it rusts? Well so does 1095 high carbon yet it's a winning steel nonetheless. Let me tell everyone something. There is no perfect steel. Every one has it's rightful place to serve a specific purpose.
Amazing Knife Much Better Than The Pm2!
Ryan S.
This knife is awesome, if you like the Pm2 but prefer a smaller blade this is the knife for you. M4 is an awesome steel, and covered in DLC it's even better. You can't go wrong, the handle is also super sexy. Jade G10 is amazing.
Little too nice...
Luke F.
I bought this to be a gift for a friend. I may have to keep looking for that gift... SUCH a cool knife with the natural (aggressive) G-10 handle and DLC coated blade. Smooth and sleek, perfect for an EDC that people would love to check out. Absolutely recommend for anyone
Another great blade by Spyderco.
David H.
I have expanded my M4/natural G10 collectionwith the Para3. Love the feel of this knife even though I have slightly larger than average hands. Fit and finish is superb as usual for Spyderco. Razor sharp right outta the box with a very even grind, blade center is spot on and super smooth. Lightning fast with the spydie flick opening method and the compression lock is great as well. Nice job Blade HQ on a quick hassle free delivery!
Awesome EDC
Bob C.
This knife is great. I love the size and feel of the knife. The M4 blade is really nice and not too hard to sharpen. The natural g10 and black coating looks amazing. This is a really well build knife that is great for the price.
