Spyderco Para 3 Sprint Run Knife Burnt Orange G-10 (3" Satin Rex 45) C223GPBORE


  • Satin-finished clip point blade made from CPM REX 45 steel.
  • Ambidextrous thumb hole opener.
  • Textured burnt orange G-10 handle scales.
  • Secure compression locking system.
  • Four-position reversible pocket clip.


This Para 3 Sprint Run model is built with burnt orange G-10 handle scales and a premium CPM-Rex 45 steel blade for excellent toughness and abrasion resistance.

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-Rex 45 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.

Customer Reviews

Really Excellent Sprint Run. Home run!!
Ralph D. on Aug 15, 2018

This Spyderco Para 3 Sprint is simply outstanding. The color of the Burnt Orange is muted and warm with just the right amount of texture. The fit and finish is outstanding and smooth. The grind of the blade perfect. And, best of all, the edge on this knife is literally hair whittling sharp right out of the box! That gives me a very high expectation for the performance of the new Rex 45 steel, which has a reported hardness of 66-67 RC. Amazing. With the new steel and color in the Para3 model, this one is most likely destined to become a high demand classic.
