From the brand
How we got our start?Spyderco was founded in 1976 by Sal and Gail Glesser. Spyderco’s first knife-related product was the Tri-Angle Sharpmaker. Originally sold out of a converted bread truck, it remains one of our best-selling products over 40 years later.
What makes our product unique?Spyderco pioneered the modern folding knife, introducing now-common features like the pocket clip, serrated edge and one-handed opening capability. Those innovations revolutionized the pocketknife and changed the knife industry forever. Those who know carry Spyderco.
Why we love what we do?Today, that creative spirit and an uncompromising commitment to quality are still the heart of Spyderco's distinctive product line, which includes a full range of folding knives, fixed-blades, sharpeners & other accessories produced in 5 different countries, including our facility in Golden, CO USA.
The Para 3
The Para 3 takes all the proven features and benefits of Spyderco's best-selling Para Military2 and distills them into an even more compact all-purpose cutting tool. Its three-inch blade is precision machined from steel and features a full-flat grind for a superior balance of strength, point utility, and low-friction cutting performance.To keep the Para 3 slim and pocket friendly, it features a lightweight, open-backed construction style and its steel liners are nested into machined recesses in the textured G-10 scales. This reduces the handle thickness and provides excellent structural support for the knife's patented Compression Lock.
It includes a textured index-finger choil and thumb ramp that provide a solid purchase for a forward grip and offer enhanced control during precise cutting tasks. The blade's signature Round Hole clearly brands it as a member of the Spyderco family and is fully accessible to allow quick, positive, one-handed opening with either hand.
Located in the spine of the handle, this high-strength mechanism locks the blade securely open during use, yet allows it to be closed easily and safely with only one hand. A four-position hourglass clip and an oversized lined lanyard hole complete the design. Ounce for once one of the most capable folding knives ever made, the Para 3 is destined to be a classic.

Thankfully, the Golden Colorado Spyderco Para 3 I just received is one of the best Spyderco's I've held. Excellent fit and finish, no blade play, and the new Para 3 design is absolutely fabulous for every day carry. I found the PM2 a little large-- good for guys who are concerned with having a weapon in their pocket but not the best knife to have in your pocket every day. But this new Para 3 is a truly fabulous knife to hold and to use. I couldn't be happier. And it came sharper than any Spyderco I've purchased-- razor blade sharp. I strongly recommend the knife. If you receive a knife that has slipped past quality control, just pop it back to Amazon. They're fabulous with returns. But order another one. You won't be disappointed.
Regarding issues with getting returned or repackaged knives: Mine came in a slightly beat up box from Amazon, but the factory tape was in place and the knife was clearly new, perfectly centered, and had smooth flicky action out of the box.
I have only two issues : As with many others, I got a deep carry clip (MXG Gear). It definitely sits up to high with the stock clip. My other issue is that based on the specs, I thought there was a little more real estate on the handle over the Delica 4. The handles are basically the same length. I think Spyderco included the finger choil (which about half of it is within the handle, and the other half extends beyond the handle as part of the blade. It does give you grip options, but really thought the actual handle would be longer. All in all, very pleased with my purchase.
