The full-flat-ground PlainEdge™ blade of this elite Para 3 is crafted from Böhler-Uddeholm M390 particle metallurgy stainless steel. This high-performance alloy offers outstanding wear and corrosion resistance, yet remains extremely easy to sharpen and maintain. It also has the unique quality of performing extremely well with both coarse and highly polished edges. Like all Para 3s, the blade of this knife includes a Trademark Round Hole™ that proudly proclaims its Spyderco pedigree and allows swift, ambidextrous, one-handed opening.
The other defining feature of this one-of-a-kind Para 3 is its vibrant red handle. It is built on a framework of sturdy stainless steel liners nested within CNC-machined, textured red G-10 scales. This advanced construction ensures excellent structural strength while keeping the knife slim and lightweight. It also provides support for the knife's patented Compression Lock™ mechanism—a high-strength, extremely user-friendly lock that allows safe and easy one-handed operation. To ensure convenient carry and instant access, the handle includes a polished four-position clip that supports right or left-side, tip-up or tip-down carry. A lined lanyard hole also allows the easy attachment of fobs or lanyards and ensures that this remarkable Exclusive expression of the Para 3 is always poised and ready when you are.
