To keep the Para 3 slim and pocket friendly, it features a
lightweight, open-backed construction style and its stainless steel
liners are nested into machined recesses in the textured black G-10 scales.
This reduces the handle thickness and provides excellent structural
support for the knife’s patented Compression Lock™. Located in the spine
of the handle, this high-strength mechanism locks the blade securely
open during use, yet allows it to be closed easily and safely with only
one hand. A four-position hourglass clip and an oversized lined lanyard
hole complete the design, offering ambidextrous tip-up or tip-down carry
and allowing the easy attachment of fobs and lanyards.
Ounce for once one of the most capable folding knives ever made, the Para 3 is destined to be a classic.
