Spyderco's Para 3, a best-seller, condensed the key features of the tried-and-true Para Military™ 2 into a compact, carry-friendly form. Now, this innovative design takes a quantum leap forward with the introduction of injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales and a streamlined version of Spyderco’s Compression Lock® mechanism, giving birth to the Para 3 Lightweight.

Weighing nearly 30 percent less than its G-10-handled counterparts, the Para 3 Lightweight showcases linerless, open-backed construction and features Spyderco’s high-traction Bi-Directional Texture™ pattern for a secure grip. Inside the handle, a stainless steel lock bar forms a robust lock mechanism while maintaining minimal weight. The knife's full-flat-ground blade is meticulously crafted from CTS® BD1N, a nitrogen-enriched high-carbon chromium steel that strikes an exceptional balance between hardness, edge retention, and corrosion resistance.
