Spyderco: Para 3 - Gray G-10 - Maxamet - C223GPDGY

The Para 3 folding knife packs all the time-tested features and functionality of Spyderco's iconic Para Military 2 into a smaller, easier-to-carry format. This Gray G-10 version sports a very special steel - Carpenter steel's Micro-Melt Maxamet alloy. Maxamet is an extremely hard high-speed powdered tool steel possessing properties that transcend conventional high-speed tool steels and approach those of cemented carbides - the ultra-hard materials used to machine other steels. When Carpenter developed this amazing alloy for the rollers in their steel mills, they sent samples to various companies in the knife industry to evaluate as a blade material. Although many tried, Spyderco was one of only a handful of companies to successfully develop the specialized methods necessary to machine, heat treat, and grind this demanding material to yield reliable, high-performance knife blades.

The blade is supported by a high-strength Compression Lock mechanism nested within the handle's textured G-10 scales. Its easy-to-clean, open-backed handle construction reduces the knife's weight, while providing a solid platform for a four-position hourglass clip that supports left and right-side tip-up or tip-down carry.

    The knife arrived perfect. Great blade centering, nice grind and no lock stick. Major kudos to KSF for reading my notes asking them to check the knife over before shipping. Not only did they do it but they gave me a handwritten note on my packing slip with all the points checked off and a smiley face! I really appreciate the attention to detail and speed.
