Spyderco Para 3 Sprint Run Knife Gray G-10 (3" Satin Cru-Wear) C223GPGYCW

  • Satin-finished clip point blade made from CPM CRU-WEAR steel.
  • Ambidextrous thumb hole opener.
  • Textured gray G-10 handle scales.
  • Secure compression locking system.
  • Four-position reversible pocket clip.


The Para 3 C223GPGYCW is a Sprint Run folder that features a textured gray G-10 handle and a satin finished CPM Cru-Wear steel blade with a plain edge.

Spyderco's Para 3 folding knife is a more compact version of their immensely popular Paramilitary 2 folder. It features the high-strength Compression Lock, stainless steel liners, and a 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.

My fav
Matthew C. on Mar 14, 2019

I can't express how much I love cruwear! Sharpens nicely and is tough. The light gray scales are original and make this a great show piece or a nice different colored edc knife that will look great doing most any task.

Fantastic knife!

This is the first Spyderco I have bought in a very long time. I have a 20+ year old Endura Clip It with red scales, and another 20+ year old Endura. The Para 3 in CPM CruWear blows both of these away. This knife holds an edge better than any knife I have ever owned. The compression lock mechanism is butter smooth and rock solid when locked.
