Kizer October. Spyderco para 3 is so overrated. Washers instead of bearing, inferior steel. Overpriced.

It was practically perfect out

It was practically perfect out of the box. I added just a touch of KPL and the thing flew open and fell shut. I finally get what all the hype was about! SMKW had it on my doorstep a couple days before I expected it. Great job y’all !

This knife is it.

I empathize with the folks who have apparently experienced quality control issues-- the first Golden Colorado produced Paramilitary 2 I received from Blade HQ was of dreadful quality; the blade wiggled from side to side, it came quite dull, and the blade was discolored, as if they had screwed up the...

Spyderco para 3 lightweight is an excellent option, I carry it in my gym shorts while doing yardwork and I forget it’s there. The wire clip is also great for concealed inconspicuous carry.

Does the Spyderco Para 3 Live Up to the Hype? | KnifeNews.com

With the adjustments Spyderco made to the design, the Para 3 lives up to the billing. It may be smaller than the Para Military 2, but it still feels like a workhorse.

I know I'll get down voted but don't get the spyderco para 3. Everyone on this sub told me to buy it and the pocket clip broke off in less than 2 months. Waste of 130 bucks

Normally carry a Para 2,

Normally carry a Para 2, which is a great knife, but slightly too big with the blade length and the way it carried in the pocket. The Para 3 offers the right dimensions for usability and every day carry, not to mention it’s also totally legal in my area.

The Para 3: A great knife that is either very much for you, or not for you at all.

Hard to call a knife in this price range a "beater", but that's what this is. A knife you can use - hard - daily without worry. This isn't a disappear-in-your-pocket lightweight folder (especially with the stock clip placement). But if you need a 3"-limit knife for hard use, it's tough to find anyth...
