Description

Description

This Para 3 Lightweight model is all blacked out with a black FRN handle and a black DLC finished blade with a plain edge.

The Para 3 Lightweight takes the concept of the original Para 3 to a whole new level. As the original was a smaller, lighter version of the popular Paramilitary 2, this model is even lighter. The handle is made from textured injection-molded FRN and is set for ambidextrous tip-up carry. The blade is made from CTS-BD1N with a full-flat ground satin finish.

The Para 3 Lightweight was awarded Most Innovative American Design at Blade Show 2019.

Features:
  • CTS-BD1N blade offers a exceptional corrosion and wear resistance.
  • Ergonomic textured FRN handle offers heightened comfort and grip strength.
  • Ambidextrous wire clip for left or right side carry.

I've owned other Spyderco knives. I've always wanted a Para 3. Now that I've purchased one, I understand what all of the hype is about. This knife is perfect. The deep-carry clip. The fact that it's lightweight in the hand. Great blade steel. And it just looks so darn good in all black. Easily the best purchase I've made on a knife.
Amazing EDC

Absolutely amazing knife. I was expecting it to be a little stiff, only having a washer on one side of the knife, but it falls shut easy! Love the all black design, and it really is weightless. If you are debating, buy it, you won't regret it!

I've always wanted a Para 3 in my knife lineup, but the G-10 version wasn't for me. I bought this knife instead & after a couple weeks of carrying it I really love it. The "QC" on this knife is flawless. Looks great. Disappears in the pocket. Ergo's are incredible. Wire clip for the win. Compression locks rock & the DLC coated blade is quite impressive. This knife outperforms its price tag. My Bugout has been replaced. Thank you Spyderco & BladeHQ.
