The MODIFIED C223PBK Spyderco Para 3 Lightweight Knife - the lastest iteration of the fiendishly popular Para 3, features an ACID STONEWASH 2.92 inch modified clip point blade made of CTS BD1N stainless steel, .145 inch thick, with a full flat grind, a notched choil and thumb ramp for secure grip, and the Spyderco hole for ambidextrous one hand opening. The black FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) handle, 4.29 inches closed, has Bi-Directional Texturing for secure purchase, sturdy Compression Lock, a lanyard hole, and a side to side reversible wire clip mounted at the butt end. The MODIFIED Spyderco Para 3 Lightweight Knife has an overall open length of 7.21 inches and it weighs 2.4 ounces. Made in the USA.
From the Spyderco website: 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, carry-friendly 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 percent lighter than its G-10-handled counterparts, the 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.
Available with a choice of PlainEdge™ or fully serrated SpyderEdge™ cutting edges, the blade 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 discreet left or right-side tip-up carry and allowing the easy attachment of fobs or lanyards.
