DPx Gear HEST Urban Ti Folding Knife Full Titanium Handle S35Vn Blade USA
The production version of the hard use, Every Day Carry (EDC) folding knife that took Kickstarter by storm is now here. The first 300 numbered units of the mid-tech folding knife made by Robert Young Pelton’s DPx Gear in partnership with Zac Brown’s Southern Grind have made their way to expectant customers.
The DPx HEST/F Urban “Ti” hits the booming EDC market with a compact, no compromise urban tool. The knife features a 3” inch sword grind blade crafted from CPM S35VN steel, DPx Gear’s patented quick open feature, a reversible, deep carry, titanium pocket clip, a stainless steel lock bar insert, a tungsten carbide glass breaker, wire stripper jimping, and an overall strength that is proportionally stronger than the Urban’s famous bigger brother: the DPx HEST/F 2.0 hard use folding knife.
Pelton has been awarded over two dozen U.S. and European patents for his designs and inventions. Once a new knife design goes into production, it is commemorated with a short collectible run.
