Deadbolt is an industry shifting innovation on so many levels. TJ Schwarz just uncovered one more and put it into the CRKT Parascale outdoor folding knife. If you’re wondering why you’ve never seen a paracord-wrapped folder before, it’s because you probably haven’t—unlike a frame lock or liner lock, Deadbolt only impacts the pivot, making the Parascale a highly useful outdoor folding companion.

Innovative Deadbolt Locking Mechanism: is simple to use and provides incredible strength
D2 Blade Steel: for excellent edge retention
Cord-Wrapped Handle: Enhances Grip and offers options for unexpected situations
Smooth Opening: IKBS™ ball bearing pivot deploys the blade smooth
Strong And Lightweight: Glass-reinforced nylon handle is durable and lightweight

From his work bench in Boise, Idaho, TJ Schwarz set out to marry the Deadbolt® lock innovation and a highly utilitarian outdoor/survivalist knife. The Parascale™ delivers in spades with a 3.2” drop point, deep-bellied blade with a satin finish. It’s balanced by a durable glass-reinforced nylon handle wrapped in paracord* - an ideal tool to always have on hand when youre miles from anywhere.

A thumb stud lights it up and the IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system quickens the opening action. It locks into place with Deadbolt® and will stay there—enduring incredible stress and weight—until it’s simply closed with the prominent button.

How Deadbolt® Works:
Steel bolts interlock with the blade when it’s deployed to yield incredible strength. A prominent button sits at the pivot point for simple, intuitive disengagement without fingers crossing the path of the blade.
