Deadbolt® is an industry-shifting innovation on so many levels. TJ Schwarz just uncovered one more and put it into the Parascale™ outdoor folding knife. Wondering why you’ve never seen a paracord-wrapped folder before? Unlike a frame lock or liner lock, Deadbolt® only impacts the pivot, making the Parascale™ a highly useful outdoor folding companion. It is simple to use and offers incredible strength and the D2 drop point with a satin finish blade steel has excellent edge retention. The cord-wrapped handle improves grip in wet or dry conditions. Thumb stud and the IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system smoothen the blade opening action.
