Custom Spyderco Para 3 Knife 3" S45VN Black Blade All Ti Rainbow Drop Carbon Fiber "Black Beauty"
This custom Spyderco Para 3 Knife 3" has the premium CPM-S45VN Stainless Steel and upgraded to all titanium hardware (clip, screws, spacers) and professionally anodized in bronze with the beautiful rainbow drop carbon fiber scales that we call "Black Beauty". Only 1 Available!
Although clearly based on the Paramilitary 2, the Para 3 was not named the "Paramilitary 3" because its smaller size qualifies it as a different knife design. Similarly, the "3" in its name actually reflects its three-inch blade length rather than identifying it as a third-generation of the Paramilitary design. While its pedigree is unmistakable, the Para 3 (and its model and SKU number) has its own distinct "identity" as a Spyderco product.
With that said, the Para 3 does faithfully retain all the defining features of the best-selling Paramilitary 2, but in a smaller, even handier package. Its three-inch blade is precision machined from premium CPM-S45VN stainless steel and features a full-flat grind for superior edge geometry and low-friction cutting performance. Its oversized Trademark Round Hole proudly announces the knife's pedigree and is easily accessible from either side to allow swift, ambidextrous, one-handed opening.
The lightweight, open-backed handle is built on a framework of stout stainless steel liners nested within textured carbon fiber scales. This refined construction style maximizes both structural strength and ergonomics while keeping the handle slim and pocket-friendly. It's also the foundation of the knife's patented Compression Lock mechanism, which provides exceptional lock strength, yet allows easy one-handed closing without placing your fingers in the path of the blade's edge. A streamlined four-position hourglass clip and a generously sized lanyard hole round out the design, offering a choice of left or right-side tip-up or tip-down carry and allowing the easy attachment of lanyards or fobs.
The Para 3 is a remarkably refined folding knife with a distinguished history. It's also a shining example of our tireless quest for perfection and our deep commitment to meeting our customers' needs.
