Spyderco 2018 Production Sample – Paul Alexander Parata

Paul Alexander keeps on designing cool new knives for Spyderco. We got a sneak peek at the Parata concept model last year, and it’s always amazing to see the refined production sample.  The Parata is the first knife to feature a stop lock. What is usually a stop in in other folding knives, has now become the lock. This location also makes it a very safe lock/knife to use. It’s hard to accidentally disengage. The handle also features two small liners that connect the pins and add strength to the handle. Another nice feature is that this lock design allow for plenty of space inside the handle, hence the huge blade – compared to the handle size. The blade shape should work well for all kinds of rotational cutting.

Overall Length: 20,5 cm / 8.09 inches
Blade Length: 8,8 cm / 3.46 inches
Blade Thickness: 3.0 mm / 0.118 inches
Weight: 133 grams / 3.1 ounces
