Carpenter Technology Corporation developed Micro-Melt Maxamet specifically for use in the rollers of their state of the art steel mills. This remarkable alloy possesses properties that transcend conventional high-speed tool steels and approach those of cemented carbides, the ultra-hard materials used to machine other steels.


The Para 3 combines all the defining qualities of this best in class folding knife design with the extreme edge retention and toughness of Maxamet blade steel. The full-flat-ground blade includes a fully accessible "Spyderco" round hole for swift, ambidextrous, one-handed opening. It is supported by a high-strength Compression Lock mechanism and housed in a handle featuring signature dark gray textured G-10 scales. A four-position pocket clip and a lined lanyard hole complete the package by supporting all possible carry preferences.
