This one-of-a-kind expression of the Spyderco Para™ 3 was produced exclusively for H.L. Dalis. It features a full-flat-ground blade in either Plain Edge™ or Combination Edge™ crafted from 52100 tool steel. Best known as the steel used in ball bearings, 52100 was traditionally used only by bladesmiths who could forge it by hand. Now available in flat stock suitable for factory production, this classic knifemaking steel provides exceptional wear resistance and Edge holding qualities; however, as a non-stainless steel, must be maintained properly to avoid corrosion.
Not to be outdone, the handle of this Exclusive knife features stunning peel-ply-textured solid carbon fiber scales. Sturdy stainless steel liners nested within CNC-machined scales ensure excellent structural strength, yet keep the knife slim and lightweight. They also provide excellent support for its patented Compression Lock™ mechanism—a high-strength, extremely user-friendly lock that allows safe and easy one-handed operation. To ensure convenient carry and instant access, the handle includes a four-position clip that supports right or left-side, tip-up or tip-down carry. A lined lanyard hole also allows the easy attachment of fobs or lanyards and ensures that this extraordinary Para 3 Exclusive is always ready when you are.
