The Para 3 Lightweight has become a lot lighter and is blessed with a improved wearing comfort. The main part of this is certainly carried by the FRN handle with its typical bi-directional texture, which has satisfied all demands for grip and hand position for many years. In addition, the convertible clip (tip-up/l-r) is designed as a deep-carry wire clip, which also reduces the weight and ensures a deep fit in the pocket. With this and the open back of the handle, the knife saves around 30 percent in weight. The Compression Lock still locks the blade, which here is made of the nitrogen-alloyed CTS-BD1N.
