Spyderco Para 3 Lightweight C223POR - CTS-XHP Blade - Orange FRN Handle - CUTLERY SHOPPE EXCLUSIVE

The long awaited Cutlery Shoppe Exclusive Para 3 lightweight is finally here! Spyderco's best-selling Para 3 folder certainly revolutionized what's expected of an EDC folder. This new lightweight takes this proven design to the next level of lightweight performance. Lighter than it's G-10 handle cousin, this P3 incorporates injection-molded FRN (fibegrlass reinforced nylon) scales and a streamlined version of their patented Compression Lock mechanism. This ultra-light Para 3 is 30% lighter than the G-10 version. The blade is FFG (full flat ground) and crafted from Carpenter's CTS-XHP nitrogen enriched high-carbon chromium steel. This steel offers the perfect mix of edge retention, hardness and corrosion resistance. The generous lanyard hole and reversible deep-pocket wire clip round out this Para 3's features, providing right or left side tip-up carry.

    Para 3 lightweight CTS-XHP Orange

    Posted by John on Apr 18th 2022

    It's a great knife like all Paras are. Very lightweight and similar in construction to the BM bugout which is probably it's competition. The stock Spyderco FRN on this knife seems a but more rigid than the Bugout but they're both good carries. The compression lock is my favorite for EDC and the low carry wire clip, CTS-XHP and orange make this thing a much better knife in my opinion.

    Cutlery Shoppe shipped the knife instantly and it showed up in perfect order. Definitely the first vendor I look to when it's time for another EDC

    Para 3 LW XHP

    Posted by Kyle on Apr 5th 2022

    Shipping was extremely quick. The knife exceeded my expectations. The edge was far beyond sharp from any other factory knife I have owned. Thought I would hate the wire clip but it is a great clip that pairs well with the knife. Makes me wonder why anyone would choose a Benchmade Bugout when the Para 3 exists. This Spyderco especially in XHP is better in every category

    The light weight version is fantastic. Feels great in the hand and very grippy. Excellent steel.

    Para 3 lightweight

    Posted by Tom Ryan on Mar 24th 2022

    Another outstanding Spyderco from Cutlery Shoppe! I love the color of the scales (I have a serious orange thing). The action is outstanding. The blade is a razor. I have purchased 3 items from this seller, each a Spyderco, the orange Shaman with the CTS-XHP blade, and the Para Military 2 Bronco with CPM Rex45 and this Para3 lightweight. All three are astoundingly good. This is one of my favorite sellers. Highest recommendation from me.

    This is my second Para 3, my original is the black heavier model. This thing is a razor, super lightweight and NO play in the blade, had to have the bright orange, makes keeping track of your tools in a dark submarine much easier.
    Bonus: Shipped incredibly fast and included additional swag including keychains, stickers and candy. Will be buying from these guy again, A+

    As Always, it’s with pleasure and joy to shop and do business with CutleryShoppe. They definitely nailed it with this Exclusive Orange Satin CTS-XHP LW Para3. The Steel, Beautiful Orange FRN Scales, and ergos make this pocketknife Amazing. Obviously, I’m a HUGE Fan of SPYDERCO Pocketknives and their Premium Quality/Performance. I also appreciate My Friend Jeff Loffer and his Amazing Team for including sweet swags with the knife. The packaging and fast shipping are greatly appreciated too. I’ll continue to do business with CutleryShoppe and Highly Recommend ordering from them. :-) -EVON
