The Spyderco Paramilitary 3 is the successor of the Spyderco Paramilitary 2. The Para 3 is a cm shorter. It is an adjustment many Spyderco enthusiasts asked for despite the popular 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 S45VN powder steel. This steel retains its sharpness well and is very stainless.

Chunkier than I expected. Very solidly built but to be honest could get 90% of the quality for 50% of the price. QC very good but large thumb hole relatively sharp. Edge retention OK but will try s110v next. Action still a little stiff after about 3 weeks. Will purchase some nano-oil soon.
