The Spyderco Para 3 C223GPS is the successor of the Spyderco Paramilitary 2. Well, not completely. Globally the same shape, same lock and the same type, only smaller. The Para 3 is a cm shorter. It is an adjustment many Spyderco enthusiasts asked for despite the widely acclaimed Paramilitary 2. The adjustment to a slightly more compact model increased the wearing comfort. Other than that the Para 3 includes all characteristics of the Paramilitary 2.
As befits Spyderco the finish is sublime. It opens easily and the famous Compression Lock, designed by Spyderco founder Sal Glesser, is very solid and easy to control. The blade is made from CPM S30V powdered steel. The steel retains its sharpness well and is very stainless. One of the most popular types of knife steel. Extra special on this knife because designer Sal Glesser worked on the development of this steel.

This is a fantastic knife. I am a collector and this is one of my favourites. The black blade and the camouflage handle look beautiful. The G10 handle is the nicest textured that I possess. The CPM S30V blade is a fair metal and you know it's not going to rust. Knives and Tools were quick on delivery also.
