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. Check out this new hard use EDC blade at www.knifecenter.com.
