Spyderco Para Military 3 C223GPOR - CTS-XHP Blade - Orange G-10 Handle - CUTLERY SHOPPE EXCLUSIVE

The long awaited Cutlery Shoppe Exclusive Para 3 is finally here! If you take everything knife aficionado's like about the Para 2 and putting them into a more compact platform, the result is the Para 3. Its 2.95" blade is precision machined from premium CTS-XHP features a full-flat grind for a superior balance of strength, point utility, and low-friction cutting performance. It includes a textured index-finger choil and thumb ramp that provide a solid purchase for a forward grip and offer enhanced control during precise cutting tasks. The blade’s signature Trademark Round Hole™ clearly brands it as a member of the Spyderco family and is fully accessible to allow quick, positive, one-handed opening with either hand.

To keep the Para 3 slim and pocket friendly, it features a lightweight, open-backed construction style and its stainless steel liners are nested into machined recesses in the textured G-10 scales. This reduces the handle thickness and provides excellent structural support for the knife’s patented Compression Lock™. Located in the spine of the handle, this high-strength mechanism locks the blade securely open during use, yet allows it to be closed easily and safely with only one hand. A four-position hourglass clip and an oversized lined lanyard hole complete the design, offering ambidextrous tip-up or tip-down carry and allowing the easy attachment of fobs and lanyards.

Ounce for once one of the most capable folding knives ever made, the Para 3 is destined to be a classic.
