Spyderco Para 3 Folding Knife

Started by Sal Glesser in 1976, Spyderco has grown into one of the all-time leaders in the production of folding knives. And that’s in both popularity and overall quality. One of their best offerings – and perhaps one of the greatest knives of all time – is the Paramilitary 2. From its unmistakable silhouette to its superb materials, it might actually be the greatest EDC knife of all time. Except for one thing: it isn’t legal to carry everywhere.

Because of the length of the blade, the Paramilitary 2 falls outside of a common knife law. That being that, in some places, no more than a 3″ blade can be carried. Instead of trying to change the laws, Spyderco decided to change the knife itself. And they named it the Para 3. It’s not quite a third generation, as it hasn’t gone through an overhaul. It still has a CPM S30V steel blade, a G10 handle, and the brand’s famous compression lock. It is, however, a good deal shorter and more pocket friendly – the blade measuring in at 2.95″ and the handle at 4.29″. While this isn’t a revolution, it is huge news for anyone that’s wanted to cary a PM2, but couldn’t because of their place of residence. This new iteration retails for $130. [Purchase]
