Spyderco Para 3 LW for me. I had handled other peoples lockback Spydercos over the years and always thought they were weird and ugly. I am hooked on the spidey fidget now and have come to appreciate the looks and ergos of the Paras. Still don't love the way FRN feels so I have a Para 3 Maxamet with full Ti parts on the way.

Beat all my expectations

For its price point this is an excellent knife. The bd1n steel holds an edge well. The frn scales really cut the weight without leaving it feeling cheap. Very solid knife and a perfect EDC!

Who doesn't love that spydy flip?!

6 out of 5 Stars

Was a bit disappointed when I first received this knife. For $91, the FRN handle seemed too slick and made the knife feel cheap. Also, I was having trouble getting a good purchase on the handle to flick the blade out. Despite my early concerns, I have grown to love this knife. I now realize the true...

Lightweight and no steel liners in the handle

Some of Spyerco's FRN knives have steel liners while others do not. This one does not have any liners. What that translates to is a very lightweight knife, to the point that it feels a bit unbalanced. I prefer a little heft to my knives. Being somewhat new to Spyderco, I didn't realize there were tw...

Para 3 Lightweight

Love my Spyderco Para 3 lightweight. Super light weight. The cts-bd1n takes a super fine edge haven’t had the knife long enough to really test the steel. My initial impression of the knife is good. You are getting your moneys worth for sure. As always SMKW shipping is super quick.

This is my new EDC and favorite folder.

I have over 50 folding knives ranging in price from $50 to $350. This is my new favorite folder. Super easy to sharpen. BD1N steel is an awesome steel. I have two kitchen knives with this steel, and they hold their edge for an extremely long time and are easy to sharpen which is unusual for a steel ...

This beautiful looking knife…cosmetically. The FRN scales are very impressive, centering of the blade is spot on, ergonomics are really nice and feels great in my hand. It’s as smooth as butter opening and closing, really fun to Spydie flick. It’s a great knife…this hits the mark for a awesome price...
