The Para 3 traces its history all the way back to the first-generation Para Military™ model introduced in 2004. After customers started asking for a more compact version Spyderco went back to the drawing board, and the Para 3 was born. To keep the knife slim and pocket friendly, it features a lightweight, open-backed construction style and its stainless steel liners are nested into machined recesses in the handle scales.

This version of the Para 3 is part of a limited edition Sprint Run. Manufactured in limited quantities, this folder proudly showcases Crucible® CPM® S90V® blade steel and stunning carbon fiber handle scales. Its full flat ground blade achieves even higher levels of wear resistance and corrosion resistance - qualities that optimize its performance as a cutting tool.

The handle features sold carbon fiber scales with a subtle peel-ply texture for a secure grip. Stainless steel liners nested with in the precision-machined scales form the foundation of the knife's patented Compression Lock™ mechanism.

The modified clip point point blade measures 3". The steel has a hardness of 59-61 Rc. The closed length is 4-1/4". Weighs 3.3 oz. Suggested Retail $319.95.

  • Origin


In 1981, Spyderco ventured into the world of knife making by introducing their first folding knife, the C01 Worker. This knife was the first in the industry to feature a round hole in the blade design that allowed for fast, one-hand opening, now the company’s trademark, and the first to feature a pocket clip. The trademarked round hole is the most recognizable feature of a Spyderco knife and it facilitates the easy opening and closing of these knives with one hand while also offering convenient access and maximum control while opening as well as accommodating large, small or gloved hands.

Spyderco’s recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomically functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. Spyderco’s knives may look unusual, but they will never be called unusable or undependable. When you purchase a Spyderco knife, you are buying a high quality reliable cutting tool that was designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort.
