Spydercos best-selling Para 3 folding knife distilled all the key qualities of their time-tested Para Military 2 model into an ultra-compact, carry-friendly format. Now this groundbreaking design takes another quantum leap forward by incorporating injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales and a streamlined version of Spydercos patented Compression Lock mechanism to create the Para 3 Lightweight.
Almost 30 percent lighter than its G-10-handled counterparts, the Para 3 Lightweight boasts linerless, open-backed construction and Spydercos high-traction Bi-Directional Texture pattern for a secure grip. A stainless steel lock bar inset into the handles interior forms the foundation of its sturdy lock mechanism, while keeping the overall weight to an absolute minimum. The knifes full-flat-ground blade is crafted from CTS BD1N, a nitrogen-enriched high-carbon chromium steel that offers a superior balance of hardness, edge retention, and corrosion resistance.
