At first glance, the Tailbone fixed blade outdoor knife passes as an ordinary neck knife with a paracord-wrapped handle. But in hand, it comes to life. The machine chain handle moves for superb ergonomics but remains perfectly rigid when cutting or slicing. It's highly usable and perfectly unexpected.
In our world biomimicry--designs inspired by the natural world--are everywhere. T.J. Schwarz of Boise, Idaho borrowed the concept when he designed a fixed blade knife handle after a fish's spine. Never one to shy away from a bold new idea, T.J. created the Tailbone with a simple stonewashed drop point blade and a handle that blows convention out of the water. The flexible handle moves vertically, conforming to your grip, or to your chest when it's worn as a neck knife without allowing any horizontal play. It's wrapped in paracord for improved grip with a sizeable finger hole and jimping for control. A strong, injection-molded sheath lashes easily to a pack or quickly becomes a neck knife.
The Tailbone is everything you expected and everything Mother Nature didn't.
