Spyderco Para 3 Folding Knife 3" CRU-WEAR Satin Plain Blade, Smooth Black G10 Handles (Paramilitary 3), KnifeCenter Exclusive - C223GPCW
SP223GPCW: C223GPCW Para 3 CPM CRU-WEAR
This elite expression of the Spyderco Para 3 was produced exclusively for KnifeCenter. The defining feature of this remarkable knife is its blade, which is precision machined from CPM CRU-WEAR—an air-hardening tool steel specially formulated to offer both superior wear resistance and toughness. Created by Crucible Industries, CRU-WEAR's unique alloy composition allows it to excel in applications that require greater wear resistance than D2, more toughness than M2 high-speed steel, or both. The CRU-WEAR used in the blade of this knife is further enhanced by the Crucible Particle Metallurgy (CPM) process, which reduces alloy segregation to achieve an ultra-fine, extremely homogeneous grain structure. In a knife blade, that translates to amazing toughness and the ability to take and hold an outstanding edge.
The other distinctive element of this knife is its handle, which features smooth black G10 scales. Like all versions of the Para 3, the interior surfaces of the scales have machined recesses that house nested stainless steel liners. These liners form the foundation of the knife's high-strength Compression Lock mechanism and provide a solid anchor for its four-position hourglass pocket clip, which supports left or right-side tip-up or tip-down carry. KnifeCenter Exclusive limited run of 600 pieces.
