The Spyderco Para 3 C223GPDBL:
This elite version of the Para 3 supercharges the performance of this compact design with state-of-the-art CPM S110V blade steel.
In its basic form, the Para 3 distills all the best-in-class features and benefits of the iconic Para Military 2 into a smaller, more pocket-friendly format.
When enhanced with CPM S110V, its full-flat-ground PlainEdge blade achieves even higher wear resistance and corrosion resistance levels, qualities that optimize its performance as a cutting tool.
CPM S110V’s high carbon content, advanced alloy mix, and high volume of vanadium and niobium carbides significantly increase the steel’s edge-holding properties compared to other particle metallurgy steels.
This extreme edge retention complements the Para 3’s many other distinguishing features, exceptional ergonomics, a high-strength Compression Lock mechanism.
It also comes with a versatile four-position pocket clip to make it one of the most capable production folding knives available today.
To make it even more special, this remarkable expression of the Para 3 proudly wears textured G-10 handle scales in the deep midnight blue color that is a signature of Spyderco’s CPM S110V breed.
