DPx Gear HEAT/F Folding Knife

DPx Gear HEAT/F Folding Knife

The DPx Gear HEAT folder is just the right amount blade that you need in a compact, pocket friendly package. Compared to the super popular HEST/F they’ve dropped the blade size to just over 2-1/4″ but did not sacrifice the great thickness leaving the business end of a sword grind that snaps quickly into action. They eliminated the hex drive slot for a typical round lanyard hole and the aluminum back spacer for completely flow-through design with barrel spacers but kept that confident, beefy feel that HEST/F folder owners love. The blade is Sleipner steel, and from experience with the MilSpec HEST folder, is an awesome user steel that is used in commercial meat processing machines to give you a cutting edge that lasts well past what you might be used to. Finally they back it with the same no nonsense, no questions asked warranty that Robert Young Pelton demands.

Kershaw 1555G10 Cryo

Kershaw 1555G10 Cryo

The Cryo has been one of the most popular new Kershaw knives to be released in a decade, and they have continued to expand the offering with new sizes and handle materials. This version is probably the best suited for a real-world EDC of any they have made to date! The Kershaw Cryo, designed by Rick Hinderer, is one of Kershaw’s best-selling knives. And now it’s available with one of our customers’ most-asked-for modifications: a G-10 front scale. This new Cryo not only looks good, it also offers the extra grip some of you have been asking for. The G-10 scale also lightens the overall weight of this very practical knife. The Cryo was the result of collaboration between Rick Hinderer and the design and production engineers at Kershaw. It’s designed to satisfy users’ craving for a Hinderer knife, but at a price that meets the demands of their wallets. The original Cryo (model 1555TI) was selected as a Blade Show “Best Buy” and as Men’s Journal Approved Gear. Like all Cryos, the G-10-handled Cryo is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening for smooth and easy one-handed opening. Access it with the built-in flipper or thumbstud. The blade steel is heat treated to Kershaw’s exacting standards. The handle has a G-10 front scale with a stainless steel back. A sturdy frame lock secures the blade open during use and a Hinderer lockbar stabilizer ensures the lock doesn’t over-extend. The new Cryo G-10 is equipped with a four-position deep-carry pocketclip for maximum carry flexibility and discretion.

Maserin 384/G10A GTO Folding Knife

Maserin 384/G10A GTO Folding Knife

I love the feel of this knife, with its grooved, contoured handle and thumb ramp, it just feels very natural in the hand. The flared guard protects both the index finger and thumb while providing ample purchase even without jimping. Opens very smoothly and the linerlock keeps the blade in snugly in place while still being easy to disengage. With the button snap Nylon sheath it can be carried both vertically and horizontally, making this a great knife for every day carry. Check out this new Maserin design at www.knifecenter.com.

DPx Gear HEST/F Limited Edition Folder

DPx Gear HEST/F Limited Edition Folder
This is a well made and well engineered folding pocketknife that will serve you well and last decades if not generations. The KnifeCenter likes the DPx products in general and this folder in particular. Each knife is numbered xxx/250 so you will know which one you received. The Niolox steel is well thought of in the knife collector community with a high wear resistance and sharpenability. The handle material is G10 – a common and effective material for its lightness and toughness, and titanium for the locking side. This is a common handle configuration in the knife industry and it really gives a great combination of utility and strength of lock. The titanium side of the handle has a piece that literally flexes over towards the blade so that, in the open position, it rests against the base of the blade locking it open. Simply moving it out of the way with your thumb allows the blade to close. It is a very strong lock when open and very easy to release to close. The pocket clip is designed for deep pocket carry. There is a pointed tungsten carbide glass breaking piece at the tail end of the handle as well. All in all, this is a real classic that you should consider adding to your collection or your pocket!
