Specially manufactured for Blade HQ, this Exclusive expression of the Spyderco Para™ 3 features a blade crafted from CPM® M4, a special-purpose high speed tool steel produced by the particle metallurgy process. Typically reserved for use in high-performance custom blades and knives used in competitive cutting, CPM M4's advanced alloy composition, high vanadium content, and extremely fine grain structure give it exceptional wear resistance and toughness. This knife's Plain Edge™ blade is full-flat ground for low-friction cutting performance and proudly features Spyderco's signature Trademark Round Hole™ for swift, ambidextrous one-handed opening. It also boasts a durable, non-reflective Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) coating.
The handle of this elite knife features natural-colored G-10 scales. Textured for a secure grip, the scales are precision machined to house nested stainless steel liners that form the foundation of the knife's patented Compression Lock™ mechanism. A four-position pocket clip offers left or right-side tip-up or tip-down carry and a generously sized lined lanyard hole allows easy attachment of lanyards or fobs. To complement the DLC-coated blade, the pocket clip and handle hardware also have a subdued black finish.
