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.
- Innovative Deadbolt® Locking Mechanism is Simple to Use and Provides Incredible Strength
- D2 Blade Steel for Excellent Edge Retention
- Cord-Wrapped Handle Enhances Grip in Wet or Dry Conditions, and Offers Options for Unexpected Situations Out in the Field

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.
TJ was destined to be a car designer. In high school he discovered his uncanny ability to draw cars—in fact, he was so good at it that by the time he was in college, he was accepting commissions from classic car owners. Just as his career was starting down the automotive path, his good friend Bill Koenig of Koenig Knives intervened and everything shifted. Once he got a taste of knife design, he never looked back. So when he says, “engineered for performance,” he means it.
