Description

Description

This Para 3 model has a dark blue G-10 handle and a satin finished CPM-S110V steel blade with a plain edge.

The Para 3 is a more compact version of Spyderco's immensely popular Paramilitary 2. It features the same high-strength Compression Lock, textured G-10 scales, and a scaled-down, full-flat ground CPM-S110V blade. This is another solid design from Spyderco that's sure to please those who love the PM2, but prefer shorter blades or live in areas with blade-length restrictions.

Features:
  • Premium CPM-S110V blade offers exceptional cutting power and edge retention.
  • Ergonomic textured G-10 handle offers heightened comfort and grip strength.
  • Four-position pocket clip and a lanyard hole provides numerous carry options.

Iíve owned several Para3ís including sprint runs and exclusives, and Iím always afraid to actually use them since theyíre limited. The S110V Para3 is the perfect version for me to actually put in my pocket and beat on. The fact that this production version gets such a phenomenal steel for not much more than the base variant makes it the perfect choice for actual hard use.

This knife was one of the first spyderco knives i had ever touched. My buddy got a brand new knife and let me carry it for a couple days. Never thought a knife could be so light and controllable. I plan on purchasing a spyderco knide to add to my collection someday soon
Awesome Knife

In all honesty, I have never found Spyderco knives particularly attractive. I picked this knife up one day because I had some extra money to spend, and nothing else in the shop was calling to me. All I can say is my opinion on the brand was changed day 1. The looks are still growing on me, but the knife is purely functional in every way. I have fallen in love with the compression lock, and how easy it is to manipulate one handed. The action is also completely smooth, with fall-shut action when the lock is depressed. I work receiving at a large warehouse, and cut boxes, tape, zip-ties, nylon webbing, etc... all day long. The 110v steel holds up extremely well, almost on par with my preferred M390 carry options.
Perfect

Great EDC, swapped out the pocket clip for a deep carry and I love it. Amazing action, smooth and crisp. Scales have great texture and the blade came very sharp. Thanks again BladeHQ!
Best knife I own

Been carrying this knife for about 2 months strait now and have absolutely loved the use of this knife! Edge retention is phenomenal and the ergonomics are even better. I don't have another knife that I could hold so many different ways to cut a particular item. The only reason why I don't love it, is because of how it sits in the pocket. 1. I immediately got a deep carry clip for it because the OEM clip sits way to high in the pocket and leaves a chunk sticking out. 2. The over sized thumb hole is knife but adds a lot to the wideness of the knife in the pocket. It makes it difficult to slide the hand in the pocket if you are wearing shorts that have angled pockets. Other than those things I think this is a must have especially if you have local knife laws that require a blade 3 in or less.
I love spyderco

This thing is awesome! The edge is wicked sharp, and the action is superb! Compression locks are one of my favorites. This is the perfect EDC form and function!
An EDC knife that works hard!

It may be small, but the para 3 is made to be used! Much like the para 2 that came before it, this knife can handle anything you throw at it. Plus, there is no better place to buy one than Blade HQ!
Best knife I own by far!!

You get all the greatness of its big brother in a more compact package. It's just big enough for an all around user for my EL hands. I prefer bigger knives but sometimes they just aren't a good or possible choice.

I'm a big fan of the Blurple scales. There is some variation from brighter/more opaque to darker/more transparent from knife to knife.

S110V will keep an edge as long as just about anything in existence. You might want to just send it to Spyderco to sharpen if you do not have diamond plates. It will be a good while before it needs any attention though.

Gift for my Dad

Got this knife for my dad for his birthday. It is his first "real" knife and hes not used to an EDC, but he loves it. I actually like it so much I got one myself. Its now in my rotation of EDCs.
Lives up to its bigger brother

Amazing knife for EDC!! If you love the features of the Paramilitary 2, but love the size of the Delica 4, this is the knife for you. Having the same functionality of the Paramilitary 2, I knew it would be great, but I was curious to see how Spyderco redesigned the ergonomics. I have medium-sized hands, and the Para 3 sits wonderfully in the hand. The pocket clip does leave a bit to be desired, but that's something a Lynch clip could easily solve. Overall, a fantastic EDC knife from Spyderco.
great knife, love it!!

This was my first purchase from BladeHQ and I have no complaints. Super quick delivery and got it right before Christmas.
I love this knife; it's great for everyday carry!
If you're looking for a reliable edc knife, you should look at the para3. The compression lock is great and it's just a great overall knife.
Great knife with the wrong clip

I do love this knife. The blade shape is great, the action is perfect. The S110V cuts like a lightsaber and holds its edge forever. All of this being said. I feel like they really missed the ball with the clip. The way this knife hangs in the pocket is just odd. It doesnít lay in there nicely, just at a wierd angle.
love it

Awesome knife, perfectly centered, smooth, great steel!
Yes, the scales are in fact "Purple"... They are not "Blurple" or "Plue", they are purple. Personally, I don't care... but it's something I wanted to note.
