The Spyderco Para 3 Folder is built to handle any cutting task with ease. Its three-inch blade is made from premium CPM S45VN stainless steel, known for its exceptional strength and durability. The full-flat grind allows for smooth, low-friction cutting, while the textured index-finger choil and thumb ramp offer enhanced control and a secure grip.

Featuring Spyderco's signature Trademark Round Hole, the Para 3 Folder can be effortlessly opened with just one hand. The lightweight open-backed construction and machined recesses in the textured G-10 handle scales keep the knife slim and pocket-friendly, without compromising on structural support.

One of the standout features of the Para 3 is its patented Compression Lock. Located in the spine of the handle, this high-strength mechanism ensures that the blade stays securely open during use, while also allowing for easy one-handed closing. Say goodbye to the hassle of struggling with a stiff lock.

Designed with versatility in mind, the Para 3 Folder offers multiple carry options. The four-position hourglass clip allows for ambidextrous tip-up or tip-down carry, ensuring that the knife is always easily accessible. The oversized lined lanyard hole provides a convenient attachment point for fobs or lanyards.

Whether you're an outdoor enthusiast, a survivalist, or an everyday user in need of a reliable cutting tool, the Spyderco Para 3 Folder is the perfect choice. With its compact size, superior performance, and convenient features, it's a knife that will never let you down.

Quick! List the most respected and innovative knife companies you can think of. If you know anything about knives, Spyderco is somewhere near the top. Spyderco Inc. makes some of the most unique and downright bizarre knife designs you'll see on the market, but from the number of passionate fans discussing, debating, and learning everything they can about Spyderco knives, it's clear that the company has done something right.

From the Glesser Family and the Spyderco Crew:

Since starting Spyderco we've been told our knives are different, peculiar, even out there. All true. Thinking beyond established knife industry barriers allowed us to introduce new and radical innovations to the knife culture including: One-hand opening, serrations on a folder and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket.

We didn't go into business to rake in a mountain of dough we're here for more selfish reasons- indulging our passion for creating knives. Spyderco is definitely out of the norm in the knife industry in our dedication to researching and developing fresh, improved and better performing materials all with function and reliability being key.

Someone once said to Sal Glesser, Spyderco's owner, 'You must design in the dark because your knives look so strange.' True again. Our recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomic functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we'll never be called unusable or undependable.

Making knives that consistently deliver reliable high-performance requires an ongoing commitment to testing. In our million-dollar testing facility we examine edge retention with a CATRA machine, look for rust development with Q-FOG, check the force needed to open and close a knife. We also repeatedly test for stress, wear, optimal heat-treating and actively search for higher quality, performance enhancing steels and materials.

As a customer you probably don't think about this, or much care, but it allows us to put forth a promise. When you purchase a Spyderco you are buying a high-quality reliable cutting tool designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort. Those Who Know Carry Spyderco.
