Spyderco Para 3 Combination Egde folding knife
Spyderco Para 3 G-10 Combination Egde folding knife is a lightweight, compact version of the excellent Para Military 2, one of the best EDC (technically improved: with improved ergonomics of the handle - extended tip of the blade - enlarged hole for the cord - four-position clip).
Reinforced fully detachable torx bolted construction for easy cleaning and folder adjustment. Manufactured at the Spyderco factory in the USA (Golden, Colorado).
Made of corrosion and stress resistant american powder steel CPM S30V with the addition of carbon, chromium and vanadium with a hardness at 58-59 HRC. This unique steel is intended for the production of high-quality blades and knives, manufactured at the Crucible Inc. foundries.
Compression-Lock - (similar to Liner-Lock) patented by Spyderco (made in USA) blade locking mechanism is extremely durable, provides extreme strength and ease of use. Located on the back of the handle, it protects the knife against unintentional closing. When releasing the lock, the fingers are not in the path of the folding blade.
Blade is laser cut with a modified clip point profile, 3.7 mm thick. Satin finish (semi-matt) eliminating reflections. Combination edge smooth blade was derived with a full flat grind increasing cutting properties and reducing the weight of the knife. The enlarged 14 mm round SpyderHole cut-out (Spyderco patent) also allows the knife to be opened with a glove. The notched ramp for thumb and finger choil (profiled undercut under the index finger between the handle and the cutting edge) increase control over the knife.
Combination Edge (partially serrated), combines two types of blades: serrated edge for aggressive cutting hard materials, plastics, fibrous and smooth plain edge used for precise cuts. This pattern extends the edge length by up to 24% compared to a straight blade.
Handle is covered with non-slip textured scales made of G-10 (durable, resistant to high and low temperatures, chemicals) screwed to steel liners using torx screws. The folder is equipped with a screwed metal clip with the possibility of fixing in four planes (up / down, right / left) 4-way clip positions. Enlarged hole (lanyard hole) for pulling a leash or security cord.
