This limited-edition Exclusive version of the Spyderco Para™ 3 was specially manufactured for St. Nick's Knife Factory and showcases a unique combination of features not found on any other expression of this model. Its blade is precision machined from CPM® 4V®, an advanced tool steel specifically developed for applications requiring a superior combination of strength, wear resistance and toughness. CPM 4V is also a product of Crucible® Industries' particle metallurgy manufacturing process, a highly refined technology that ensures a uniform distribution of the steel's alloys and a fine, homogenous microstructure.
To harness the performance potential of this elite steel, this knife features a full-flat-ground, PlainEdge™ blade that offers outstanding edge geometry and point utility. A durable black Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) coating protects the blade's steel and eliminates its reflective properties, while a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ provides swift one-handed opening with either hand.
Equally unique, this knife's handle proudly showcases deep red G-10 scales, black-coated screws, and a black-coated four-position pocket clip that supports left or right-side, tip-up or tip-down carry. The scales have a peel-ply texture to help ensure a secure grip and are precision machined to accept the nested stainless steel liners that form the foundation of the knife's high-strength Compression Lock® mechanism.
