SP82GP3: C82GP3 D'Allara 3
Spyderco
 
Spyderco produced the first D'Allara rescue knife to honor the memory of John D'Allara, a New York City police officer and Spyderco enthusiast who gave his life to save the lives of others during the 9/11 attacks. The D'Allara 3 maintains the noble spirit of the original while offering an updated style and construction ideal for all-purpose use. Its full-flat-ground blade is crafted from CPM S30V particle metallurgy stainless steel and has a utilitarian drop-point profile and plain edge cutting edge. The slim handle features skeletonized full stainless steel liners, a stout stainless steel backspacer, and textured G10 scales. It houses Spyderco's patented Ball Bearing Lock mechanism with a ceramic ball bearing that provides extreme strength and convenient ambidextrous operation. A reversible deep-pocket wire clip carries left or right-side tip-up and keeps the D'Allara 3 ready for immediate access.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Weight, Pocket Clip
Nice blade shape, good Seki City quality
The D'allara 3 provides Spyderco aficionados an alternative design and novel locking mechanism. The Torx-screw construction is the same as the Endura, Delica and other mainstream Japanese imports.This knife will satisfy most people as an EDC, with a few exceptions. It's not a good choice for tactical or CQC blade. Blade stock is thinner than the Manix 2 XL for example.In addition to its role as a "Rescue Knife", the modified Sheepfoot S30V shape of the D'allara 3 is great for a light work knife, paring knife for cooking, whittling, doing mundane daily tasks. Because it doesn't look threatening it's not a bad EDC. While a sharp pointed blade can be useful for precision work, sometimes it's nice to have the safety of a blunted tip.As much grief as the ball lock gets, I found it to be an interesting take on the spring-loaded Benchmade Axis lock or Spyderco's caged-ball lock. The ball can freely spin around which was an unexpected feature.The knife has a decent heft, some 50% heavier than the Manix 2 LW, due to the stainless liners and thin G10 scales (4.5 oz). It is thinner in profile though.Although it's a great blade there are many alternatives in the same price range that are forcing the price of this unique model down a bit. I feel like my Manix 2 LW S110V blade is a better value, cheaper, better steel and ergonomics.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Handle Material, None
Cons: Lock Type
sort of OK
I liked the knife design so purchased it. the fit and finish is good. the blade shape is a bit unusual since I primarily have the leaf shaped ones. It is utilitarian though. The steel is a good one, nothing extraordinary, but fully useable. The one thing I really can't stand is the ball bearing lock. I've read it is pretty strong / durable. I thought I'd be able to deal with it. However, I found that lock way too difficult to use since the area around it is not recessed. I can sometimes disengage it with my finger tips. Most times I need both hands to release it. the knife appears to be pretty sturdy with the liners and construction. But the darn lock is the downfall. I'm guessing that is why it is discontinued.
