I've had my Para 3 for more than a year now and I am loving it. It has created its own patina which looks cool. The blade is very strong but does need to be taken care of. If you take care of it, it will take care of you.
After 2 years EDC the blade is still dead center, no wobble. This knife is small and solid and sits comfortably at the bottom of my pocket. Blade is premium Maxamet supersteel produced by Carpenter USA, excellent edge retention and wear resistance. Not so corrosion resistant, needs oiling. Difficult to sharpen. The natural steel blade stains and develops a patina over time. I like this. My favorite knife.
