Description

Description

This Sprint Run Para 3 model has a brown G-10 handle and a satin 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.

Most carried Knife I Own!

Out of all of the Spyderco Knives I have, this is by far the most consistently carried knife for me. I like the weight, and the size. The compression lock is great for one handed use, as well, it opens and closes butter smooth! I was skeptical about the steel as I know it can be hard to get an edge at times, but it takes an edge great and holds the edge for a long time even with hard use. This knife is definitely in my number 1 slot for carry knives.

I enjoy owning and carrying this knife, and knowing it's a sprint run makes it all the more special.The action on the compression lock came nice and smooth as butter. The brown tone on the scales is exceptional, especially when viewed with bare eyes. As for the steel, I can attest that the S35VN has out-performed the standard S30V on my PM2. I have absolute confidence that this knife will perform any everyday task it will come across.

According to the Spyderco paperwork, this is more of a Limited Edition than a Sprint Run. Having said that don't let that stop you from purchasing this knife. It fits perfect in my hand and the brown scales look much better than the plain black. Being a lefty, the compression lock can very easily be used one handed with a little practice. Only deducting one star due to very minor lock stick and a slightly off center blade.
Wonderful

After a little lube and break in time this knife is a joy to carry. The clip leaves too much of the knife exposed but hopefully Spyderco starts offering deep carry’s. Overall though this thing is fantastic

The color and steel of this knife are great. Works just as great as my PM2 but comes in a smaller package. My only complaints are that it seems to have a stiffer lock than my PM2. I'm hoping it just needs to be broken in a bit more. Also, the compression lock can easily pinch your hand if you're not careful. Overall, I'm excited to get to use this knife more often.

This is my 1st higher end Spyderco. I chose this because my favorite knife steel is S35VN, Brown G10 scales look classy and wanted tbe compression lock. As soon as I pulled it out of the box, I loved it. Great feel in the hand, smooth action, razor sharp, perfectly centered and made in the USA. Love that compression lock. Highly recommended.
