OEPCK80C: Para-Claw, Medium, Black
Outdoor Edge
 
The Para-Claw features a 1.5" hawkbill blade ground from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel with a stealthy BlackStone finish. The blade is integrally molded to a glass/nylon guard that ties into the bracelet. Handle grooves and jimping on the thumb ramp ensure a positive grip at all times. The patent pending sheath system locks the knife securely for immediate deployment in any situation.

Once deployed, the paracord bracelet forms the knife handle. Each bracelet is hand-tied from 550 paracord and is available in three sizes and various colors, each with an adjustable loop to fine tune the fit plus a steel T-post for easy attachment. The medium and large Para-Claw are offered in both black and woodland camo. The Small sized Para-Claw is available in purple/black two-tone and fits a wrist size of 5.75-6.5". Medium fits a wrist circumference of 6.25-7" and Large fits a 7" wrist and larger.

Better Than Nothing
All that I can say about the Para-Claw is that it is "better than nothing."The bracelet that I received was poorly finished because the unsightly burnt ends of the paracord were visible and distracting. Apparently, the mfg attempted to join 3 loose ends at one point which just looked like a big blob that I just couldn't stand. I took the paracord apart in an effort to hide the burnt ends but found there were actually 6 loose ends that I had to deal with. I was able to rewind, cut and reburn the ends in without them being visibly distracting but the mfg should have been able to do that in the 1st place. I also do not like the way that the locking clasp is loosely attached to a loop of paracord. If tightened enough, it won't come loose but it just seems to be a cheap means of attachment.As for the claw itself, it is very sharp but very difficult to deploy w/o loosening the blade from the retention clip 1st. If you know you may need to use it, you could do this in advance but, when faced w/an unexpected threat, it would be difficult to release the claw quickly w/o some delay which calls into question it's usefulness as a tactical device.Like I said, it's better than nothing. It looks "cool" on my wrist but I defintely wouldn't want to rely in being able to deploy it in a real life threat situation. The folder in my pocket or a blade strapped to my ankle would be far better.

Innovative, simple, excellent product
Aside from all the obvious benefits to having a length of strong, lightweight rope with you when you go hiking, this provides the added benefit of having a knife to cut it with built in. As a paranoid-utility enthusiast and designer, I think this is a brilliant product, as it allows you the utility, without screaming "KNIFE!"...Well done again to KnifeCenter for their excellent customer service, and very speedy send-off and delivery. You guys rock!
