Spyderco Knives: Spyderco Para 3 Lightweight CPM SPY27, Blue Handle, SP-C223PCBL


The C223PCBL Spyderco Para 3 Lightweight Knife - the latest iteration of the fiendishly popular Para 3 EDC, features a 2.92 inch modified clip point blade made of Spyderco's proprietary CPM SPY27 stainless steel, .145 inches thick, with a satin finish, full flat grind, notched choil and thumb ramp for secure grip, and the Spyderco hole for ambidextrous one hand opening. The ergonomic blue 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 Spyderco Para 3 Lightweight has an overall open length of 7.21 inches and it weighs 2.4 ounces. Made in the USA in Golden, Colorado.

From the Spyderco 2020 Reveal Product Guide: Spyderco has long been an industry leader in the use of exotic, high-performance blade steels. After years of using the best materials the world's leading steel manufacturers could provide, we decided it was time to create our own.

In close cooperation with Crucible® Industries, we have developed CPM SPY27, a particle metallurgy stainless steel containing a proprietary mix of alloys, including vanadium, molybdenum, niobium, nitrogen, and cobalt. This remarkable composition, enhanced by the amplifying effects of cobalt and the state-of-the-art Crucible Particle Metallurgy process, is produced exclusively for Spyderco.

This supercharged version of the popular Para 3 Lightweight enhances all the proven features of the standard version with its high-performance CPM SPY27 blade.

A nice first Spyderco. 04/03/2022
By James Connor
My first Spyderco and the most I've spent to date on a folder.

The Good:
Lockup is solid, no lateral play.
The FRN is sturdier than I expected.
I like the wire pocket clip.
I like the scale color more than I expected.
Very sharp.
5 stars.

The bad:
The bevel is uneven enough that it bothers me. It's a user so I'll eventually even it out but if it was a collector I would not be happy.
-1 star.

I gave it 4 stars but it should probably be 3.5 stars. Knives are all about the blade.

Solid but not Exemplary 06/26/2020
By J Harm
The size and weight make this great for EDC. The design feels good in the hand and allows for great control. The FRN handles are solid but look cheap — Spyderco could do better even with FRN. Blade centering is still an issue but should not present a problem. Time will tell how well this steel performs. Solid but not exemplary.

Acid stonewash 07/22/2022
By Alan
This was my first time buying a knife from Knives Plus. I had them acid itch and stone wash the blade, it came out amazing and perfectly centered on para 3 lightweight which is hard. I definitely would do again.

Terrific EDC knife! 03/09/2021
By Craig
This is my favorite EDC knife. I’ve carried the Para 3 lightweight with CTS BDN1 steel for a long time and this version with CPM SPY27 blows it away. Same great features but the steel is much better quality.
