Para® 3 Coyote Brown G-10 CPM 10V Black Blade Exclusive
This limited-edition Exclusive version of the Spyderco Para® 3 was specially manufactured for River's Edge Cutlery (riversedgecutlery.com) and is available only through their sales channels.
The most distinctive feature of this knife is its blade, which is crafted from CPM® 10V®, the very first member of Crucible's family of high-vanadium tool steels to be made by the Crucible Particle Metallurgy process. Often used as a replacement for carbide in demanding tooling applications, CPM 10V is also a favorite material of performance-oriented custom knifemakers. The blade of this elite knife takes full advantage of CPM 10V's remarkable properties with a full-flat grind and a PlainEdge™ cutting edge that provide outstanding edge geometry and low-friction cutting performance. It also features a low-profile Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating.
The other unique element of this knife is its handle, which features peel-ply-textured coyote brown G-10 scales. To complement the blade’s DLC finish, the handle’s four-position clip, liners, and all other hardware also have stealthy black coatings.
