I’m a big Spyderco fan and this knife does not let the brand down. Super light and opens & closes with ease. Now my go to EDC. Only thing I’d like to see fixed is FRN scales smoothed on the edges.
Great little knife from THE knife shop
My wife loves the knife and we love DLT trading. Amazing prices lightening fast shipping. I've purchased three knives from them so far and I will definitely purchase countless more. This is most definitely our online knife shop!
Awesome knife, even more awesome dealer!
The Para 3 LW is one of my favorite offerings from Spyderco, it’s a fantastic knife. DLT is also unrivaled when it comes to shipping times, they are fantastic!
That there's a para 3 lightweight
I purchased the DLT exclusive para 3 in M390. It was the first para 3 for me and I was really impressed. I actually ordered a bugout and called to change my order to this knife. I thought, why not get the lightweight version of a knife I recently enjoy. I'm glad I did. It may not be the same build quality but for the price and the wire pocket clip I love on Spyderco knives ?. It's… read more a great purchase. I actually prefer the FRN and the edges are smooth. I carry this, the dragonfly 2, and stretch 2 in v-toku 2 most out of all my knives. Nothing wrong with a lighter FRN edc!
Spyderco Para 3
Why offer a fine quality knife like that with sub-standard CTS-BD1???????
At minimum give the little knife a chance with CTS-XHP!! S35V, S30V is better than BD1. Setting it up to fail!
There’s so many little details to like about the execution of this little folder.
Great ergos. The handle shape due to the FRN are nice and contoured. The FRN isn’t as aggressive as something like the delica, but still grips in your hand.
The deployment is fast and snappy. And the closing was drop shit right out the box.
Mine came… read more scary sharp. And the grind is symmetrical.
The deep wire clip is great. It carries very deep in the pocket and the knife is so light you’ll barely notice it there.
If there was anything I could nitpick, it would be the spacers, which are FRN casing steel cushings, but it’s a minor cosmetic niggle.
Overall, a fantastic knife and will be taking the top place in my pocket rotation for a long time to come.
