Spyderco’s best-selling Para 3 folding knife distilled all the key qualities of their time-tested Para Military 2 model into an ultra-compact, format. Now this groundbreaking design takes another quantum leap forward by incorporating injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales and a streamlined version of Spyderco’s patented Compression Lock mechanism to create the Para 3 Lightweight.

Almost 30% lighter than its G10-handled counterparts, the Spyderco Para 3 Lightweight boasts linerless, open-backed construction and Spyderco’s high-traction Bi-Directional Texture pattern for a secure grip. A stainless steel lock bar inset into the handle’s interior forms the foundation of its sturdy lock mechanism, while keeping the overall weight to an absolute minimum. The knife’s full-flat-ground blade is crafted from CTS BD1N, a nitrogen-enriched high-carbon chromium steel that offers a superior balance of hardness, edge retention, and corrosion resistance.

The Spyderco Para 3 Lightweight has a choice of either plain edge, or serrated SpyderEdge blade and features a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole for quick, one-handed opening with either hand. A generously sized lanyard hole and a reversible deep-pocket wire clip round out its impressive features, providing left or right-side tip-up carry and allowing the easy attachment of fobs or lanyards.

    Stunning knife - to be expected

    Posted by Leon Dickinson on 14th Apr 2021

    If you're into the knife scene then most likely you already know this knife. However if you're not it's rather popular. it's known for being the quality you would expect from some of the higher end spiders without some of the additional cost. Admittedly it does not have the same quality of materials is the standard para 3; it feels great, nice and sturdy while being lightweight. Compression lock is lovely too, paired with spydey whole I can sit flicking the blade around all evening. The only downside to this knife that I can think of is that as a UK resident, you can't (shouldn't) carry this without good reason. Subsequently this gets a lot of use round the house/garden but looking forward to bringing it camping once this covid business is over.

    Better than the Para 3..my perfect EDC

    Posted by Chris O on 18th Feb 2021

    I own several Spydies and Benchmades. This one (plain edge) gets all the pocket time. I'm a big fan of the CTS BD1N steel which has a nice anti-reflective satin, holds an edge well and is really easy to sharpen. Don't confuse it with BD1..the N makes a big difference and they should've given it a different name. I own a PM2 and considered a Para 3..I really don't regard the LW version a 'downgrade'. In day-to-day use, I really don't see a huge difference to S30V. Many reviews state that this is the knife the Para 3 should have been; I agree. I'm awaiting the SPY27 version which will be in my pocket like a shot.
