The Lightweight Para 3 combines all of the features to make this a best-in-class utility knife. Made from CTS BD1N stainless steel, this blade guarantees balance, high-quality edge retention, and unmatched cutting performance. Unlike its larger Para 3 line siblings, this knife was designed at almost a full ounce lighter than others in this series, making it ideal for users who want the same strength in a compact package. This knife includes Spyderco’s trademarked Round Hole for a smooth, ambidextrous open and fumble-free design. The full-flat grind combines with a plain cutting edge, making it an ideal combination of cutting performance, utility, and edge geometry. The edge extends the entire length of the blade without the inclusion of an index-finger choil, which adds to overall performance by maximizing cutting edge and follow-through at the heel of the blade, while the clip point blade supports everything from skinning fish to cleaning game. The skeletonized steel liners are tucked into the textured G-10 handle, and add both rigidity and strength without adding unnecessary material. Inside the steel liners the compression lock incorporates a high-strength mechanism that holds the blade securely during use, and still allows it to be opened and closed easily with one hand. The included pocket clip gives the user the option for ambidextrous carry, either tip-up or tip-down. This knife comes with a three-screw pocket clip that is easily adjustable for ambidextrous carry, tip-up or tip-down. A lanyard hole is also included for additional versatile carry options.
