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.

    First Para 3

    Posted by Roger W on Dec 6th 2018

    I have a ton of Para 2s but this is my first Para 3. Love the orange G10 and unique XHP steel. SpyderCo always seems to knock it out of the park. Great value too on an exclusive offering from CutleryShoppe. I will buy more if I get the chance.

    Great Knife

    Not much to say. I have a bunch of Para 3s. They are all awesome. The combination of the bright orange scales and CTS-XHP blade was what attracted me to this exclusive. I missed out on the PM2 so I jumped on this one!
