Description

Description

This Para 3 model has a brown G-10 handle and a black finished CPM-S35VN 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 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:
  • CPM-S35VN blade offers exceptional edge retention and cutting performance.
  • Ergonomic textured G-10 handle offers heightened comfort and grip strength.
  • Four-position pocket clip and a lanyard hole provides numerous carry options.

I've purchased more knives than I can count and this guy ends up in my pocket almost every day. This thing is perfection.
It checks all the boxes and then some. Gotta get me a light weight next.
Great EDC

Everything is great except for the lock up at about 66% upon arrival. The lock sticks that it hurts my finger while closing the blade. Really want to love this knife, but itís somewhat disappointing.
First pocket knife

This is my first pocket knife and I couldnít be happier with the choice. The overall ergonomics make make this feel fantastic in the hand and it has a great fidget factor.
Love this knife!

After getting a Spyderco Waterway and a Spyderco McBee I wanted to try a Spyderco folding knife with a blade length somewhere in between. I picked this knife up and it has become my default option for EDC. Great construction, great steel, great color scheme, great action.
THIS is a perfect EDC

This knife is the absolute perfect size for small jobs and pocket carry. Wonderful ergonomics.

It is legal to conceal carry it in NC to my knowledge (some exceptions) but please check local laws.

The steel is an upgrade over S30, though small and both are great steels. I cut boxes at my job and it handles it with ease.

Finally the color and fidget factor with the compression lock are wonderful!
Just Perfect...

I have tons of Spyderco products. This (was) my 1st Para 3 and the brown scales with the black blade and hardware is supremely pleasing to eyes and hands alike. Fit, finish, lock up, detent, deployment and jimping are perfect. Old news.

This color combo should not be available without the really dark bronze anodized Lynch NorthWest clip. It matches the G10 exactly.

From bladehq, there is absolutely no better small EDC for $180 (knife + clip).
Perfect EDC

I absolutely love this knife. Love the action, the audible locking mechanism, and ergonomics are amazing. Only thing is itís NOT 3Ē. No matter how you measure it 2 5/8 at the most. Still an amazing blade.

Another perfect variation of the popular Para3! The black hardware in combination with the DLC blade makes this knife stunning in hand. Brown scales look great and this knife becomes a user with its ability to hide dirt on the scales. Get one we while you can!
