Spyderco Paramilitary 3 C223GPDGY Maxamet Steel Grey G10 Handle

SKU: C5456B

Easily one of the most anticipated products in Spyderco's history, the USA-made Para 3 is an offshoot of their immensely popular Paramilitary series of folding knives. This special edition is even more desirable, featuring peel-ply carbon fiber handles and 52100 steel, a forged steel that is only now making its way into the world of modern folding knives.


Carpenter Technology Corporation developed Micro-Melt Maxamet specifically for use in the rollers of their state-of-the-art steel mills. This remarkable alloy possesses properties that transcend conventional high-speed tool steels and approach those of cemented carbides, the ultra-hard materials used to machine other steels. As one of only a handful of companies to master the specialized methods necessary to machine, heat treat, and grind this exotic alloy, Spyderco is extremely proud to offer it in some of our elite American-made products.

This expression of the Para 3 combines all the defining qualities of this best-in-class folding knife design with the extreme edge retention and toughness of Maxamet blade steel. The full-flat-ground blade includes a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole for swift, ambidextrous, one-handed opening. It is supported by a high-strength Compression Lock mechanism and housed in a handle featuring signature dark gray textured G-10 scales. A four-position pocket clip and a generously sized lined lanyard hole complete the package by supporting all possible carry preferences.


All of these premium features rest on the popular Para 3 platform. Open-backed construction makes it easy to keep the knife clean and allows access to Spyderco's patented Compression Lock mechanism. Not only is this lock exceptionally strong, it also allows for easy and safe one-handed closing by keeping your hands out of the way of the sharpened edge.


This Para 3's satin blade is easily opened with Spyderco's Trademark Round Hole. This knife is an exceptional slicer thanks to its full flat grind, preferred by many for its cutting efficiency. Thanks to the integrated finger choil that extends usable handle length, another common Spyderco design element, the user can choke up on the blade for fine control and really take advantage of the acute point. A four-position clip, allowing for a multitude of carry options completes this Limited Edition Spyderco Para 3.
