The DPx Gear Hostile Environment Fighting Tool (HEFT) 4

The DPx Gear Hostile Environment Fighting Tool (HEFT) 4

The DPx Gear Hostile Environment Fighting Tool (HEFT) 4, might just be the most balanced knife that DPx offers. It’s discrete enough to keep a low profile, but it’s large enough to handle jobs that would compromise most four-inch knives. The 3.94″ blade is high-performance, German-made Lohmann Niolox stainless steel and is cryo-hardened to a Rockwell Hardness near 60. Lohmann Niolox steel is prized for its ability to hold up to abuse and to retain a cutting edge and this knife has proven that. It’s held a durable cutting edge through repeated hard use on a variety of wood, bamboo, cardboard, and other mediums. It’s survived neglectful treatment, tons of batoning, and is thick enough to give you reassurance at the tip when drilling holes. Niolox combines the best qualities of stainless and high-carbon steels to provide you with a superior hard use tool. There is a storage compartment hidden within the G10 handle designed for small items like fishing line, hooks or water-purification tablets. The MOLLE compatible nylon sheath is durable, compact, and features a quality Velcro pouch the perfect size for a fire starter and small sharpener. The HEFT 4 was designed by Tommaso Rumici with input from Robert Young Pelton and is manufactured by LionSteel of Maniago, Northern Italy.

With a sand blasted 6AL4V titanium handle and premium Sleipner blade steel, satin drop point blade that is flat ground and measures nearly a quarter inch thick along the spine. The Hi-Jinx™ is made in Maniago, Italy with centuries of knife-making expertise milled into the scalloped handles. The blade opens with a flipper and includes an IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system that facilitates fast and smooth opening. A titanium frame lock seals this knife in the open position like a bank safe and a lock overdraft protection is built into the ornamental pivot to avoid overextending the lock. The stainless steel pocket clip is reversible for left or right handed tip up carry and is designed to sit deep in the pocket. Ken Onion designed the Hi Jinx™ knife to stroll comfortably into a business meeting with all the confidence and beefy brawn necessary to cut a hole through the wall for a fast getaway– should the need arise.
