CRKT’s Paracord-Wrapped Folding Knife Is A One-Of-A-Kind Outdoor Blade

Dec 17, 2019

Category: Gear

A hard-wearing cutting tool is an essential piece of every guy’s EDC arsenal whether they’re a city slicker or outdoorsman, but not just any knife will do. Sure, there are a handful of formidable folders on the market today, but few can stand up to the functional standards set forth by CRKT and their Parascale — an interesting and unique paracord-wrapped folding blade.

Slated for a 2020 release, the Parascale is another design using their innovative Deadbolt lock — brought to the masses by Boise, Idaho’s T.J. Schwarz. After creating a handful of purposeful EDC accessories using the innovative locking mechanism, Schwarz has decided to implement the system alongside a robust 3.191-inch D2 Steel blade, complementing the Parascale’s attractive glass-reinforced nylon handle. On its exterior, a textured paracord wrap weaves its way around, through, and between the knife’s separate channels — affording users enhanced grip, comfort, and utility for hard-use outdoor cutting tasks. If you’re looking for a lightweight knife to round out your collection, the five-ounce CRKT Parascale will be available soon for $150.
