DPx Gear HEST II Milspec Niolox Steel G-10 Handles Cordura Sheath
The DPx H•E•S•T Original changed the way professionals think of a survival blade. It had to be to be useful and it couldn’t fail when deployed. The H•E•S•T concept was created by adventurer and DPx Gear founder Robert Young Pelton who applied his time in three dozen conflicts and adventures through more than 120 countries to come up with the perfect balance of concealability, utility and fail-safe operation in an innovative blade.
The HEST II is the Milspec version of the same knife with German Niolox tool steel hardened to 60-61 HRC for ultimate toughness and edge retention. The blade is extraordinary thick for a knife at this size. This will ensure durability and strenngth.
The blade spine features three sizes of wire strippers as well as the pattented DPx Gear notch that works as bottle openere. An integrated hex driver on the blade flat double as lashing point. Large finger choil allows for excellent control for more precise tasks.
The G-10 handles are very durable and ideal for hard use as G-10 in resistance to element and most common chemicals. The textured G-10 scales are also grippy. They can be removed easily for lashing the blade on a stick. A pry bar/scraper is integrated into the pommel that allows the user to pry, scrape, strike and split. It can also be used as an impact tool.
A MOLLE compatible black Cordura sheath is provided with the knife. The sheath is durable, compact and can be easily attached to a wide range of packs, belts and other outdoor equipments.
