Carpenter® Technology Corporation developed Micro-Melt® Maxamet® specifically for use in the rollers of their state-of-the-art steel mills. This remarkable alloy possesses properties that transcend conventional high-speed tool steels and approach those of cemented carbides, the ultra-hard materials used to machine other steels. As one of only a handful of companies to master the specialized methods necessary to machine, heat treat, and grind this exotic alloy, Spyderco is extremely proud to offer it in some of our elite American-made products.
This expression of the Para 3 combines all the defining qualities of this best-in-class folding knife design with the extreme edge retention and toughness of Maxamet blade steel. The full-flat-ground blade includes a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ for swift, ambidextrous, one-handed opening. It is supported by a high-strength Compression Lock™ mechanism and housed in a handle featuring signature dark gray textured G-10 scales. A four-position pocket clip and a generously sized lined lanyard hole complete the package by supporting all possible carry preferences.

Great fit and finish, great service.
My first spyderco Knife. I've read about the knife steel but was surprised yo find the knife already starting to patina in the box. Also the factory sharpening left a weird angle close to the tip. The stonewashing was uneven and there was a little bide of side to side play. The knife is sold out so I contacted spyderco and could turn it in for warranty but havent decided to pay to ship back or just bite the bullet and accept that is how it comes out the factory.
Excellent service. Knife came perfect. Used to shop at other sites but not anymore. REC is the fastest and best place I’ve shopped and will continue to do so.. A+++
It's great when you get a knife and you don't have to take it apart and clean and lube it. Came with perfect centering and action couldn't be any better. Great Little Knife
