Spyderco’s best-selling Para 3 folding knife distilled all the essential 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 Spyderco’s Compression Lock mechanism to create the Para 3 Lightweight. This Para 3 is a sprint run featuring a teal FRN handle, and an S90V blade was made in a limited quantity, so get yours while they last!
Almost 30 percent lighter than its G-10-handled counterparts, the Para 3 Lightweight boasts linerless, open-backed construction and Spyderco’s high-traction Bi-Directional Texture pattern for a secure grip. A stainless steel lock bar inserts in the handle’s interior forms the foundation of its sturdy lock mechanism while keeping the overall weight to an absolute minimum.
