Inspired by the iconic Para Military 2, the Para 3 distills all the features of that best-in-class folding knife into a more compact, carry-friendly package. For military end users or those who prefer a tactical look to their knives, this version of the Para 3 boasts digital camouflage-patterned textured G-10 scales that approximate the pattern of the U.S. Armys ARPAT camouflage. The scales are precision machined to contain nested stainless-steel liners that are the foundation of the knifes high-strength Compression Lock mechanism. On the business end, this knife features a full-flat-ground CPM S30V stainless steel blade with a black PlainEdge cutting edge and a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole for quick, ambidextrous, one-handed opening. To keep the knife ready for immediate access, it includes a four-position clip that can be configured for left or right-side tip-up or tip-down carry.
