The Para-Claw combines a 1½-inch hawkbill blade with a hand-tied bracelet made of 550 parachute cord so the wearer always has a utility knife at hand.
A patent-pending sheath locks the blade — ground from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel — but allows immediate deployment, and an adjustable loop makes for a perfect fit. The Para-Claw is available in small, medium and large, for wrist circumferences of 5¾ to more than 7 inches. $29.95. Outdoor Edge, Denver, (800) 447-3343. outdooredge.com
