- Technical Description
The Para 3 folding knife packs all the time-tested features and functionality of Spyderco’s iconic Para Military 2 into a smaller, easier-to-carry format. For tactical end users who are concerned about light discipline or those who just prefer the look of a black blade, the Para 3 is now available with a tough Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) blade coating.
This low-profile coating is permanently bonded to the premium CPM S30V stainless steel blade, which features a full-flat grind, a PlainEdge cutting edge, and a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole for swift, ambidextrous, one-handed opening.
The blade is supported by a high-strength Compression Lock mechanism nested within the handle’s textured black G-10 scales. Its easy-to-clean, open-backed handle construction reduces the knife’s weight, while providing a solid platform for a four-position hourglass clip that supports left and right-side tip-up or tip-down carry. Like the blade, the clip and all assembly screws are blackened with non-reflective coatings.
