The Spyderco 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® S45VN® 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.

    My first real knife, very happy. Great action, prefect size for my hand, shipped sharp and very fidgety.

    Spyderco Para Military 3. I only have one complaint about this knife. It’s tough, sturdy, great comfortable grip. I really like the blade shape & being all black it looks extra tough. The complaint is minimal & only a preference for me. I would have preferred a low carry clip. I’m sure I could probably change it over if it really bothers me. Otherwise a fantastic knife!

    Spyderco Para Military 3..
    I’ve only just started collecting knives again. I’ve had Buck & CRKT TO name a couple. I’ve recently bought a Benchmade Mini Bugout which is pretty good. I ordered the Para 3 which is a great knife, superbly built & very sturdy. It was on back order so while I was waiting for it I picked up a Spyderco Cat, much smaller than the Para 3 & am getting far more use out of. But for outdoor work stuff you can’t go past the Para Military 3. It’s the maximum 3″ blade & that’s plenty for my needs & it is tough as. Highly recommend Spyderco knives. So far so good. And because I had to wait on the back order, the guys @ Knife Depot sent me a complementary Key Ring LED torch, USB rechargeable which is so much better than I was expecting it to be. I will be using these guys again.
    Cheers Guys…
