- More Information
Built for bushcraft. 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. 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.
From his 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 you’re 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.
It’ll have your back in the backcountry.

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.
