Introducing the New DPx HEST/F Urban "Triple Black". The Night Rider.

Our latest EDC sized hard use knife, the Urban is now available in matte black Particle Vapor Deposition (PVD) coated CPM S35VN blade with matte black Titanium alloy frame and hardware.

The DPx Gear Triple Black versions have always been a popular option as a low-profile knife for law enforcement and military use where a superior cutting edge and low visual signature are priorities.  With its smaller size and American made pedigree, it is sure to become a new favorite for a low profile, high quality knife option. The heirloom quality USA made knife is manufactured by Zack Brown's Southern Grind and is warrantied for life.

These corrosion free folding knives are made to work hard and arrive without oil to prevent dirt buildup. Also included, is a new special edition gray and black DPx Gear American flag logo patch.

The Triple Black configuration has an award winning pedigree.  In 2012 DPx Gear released a limited run of 500 of the larger DPx HEST/F 2.0 Triple Black Special Editions, which went on to win that year's Blade Show's Most Innovative Imported Design award. The Urban T3 is EDC for those who work the night shift. 

URBAN SPECS

Designed by Robert Young Pelton for DPx Gear, the DPx HEST/F Urban may be the last pocket knife you'll need for every day carry. Small, light and feature-packed, it’s just as at home in your jeans as it is in the tackle box. The ergos on this knife are precise, hand adjusted and solid.  DPx Gear creates a unique midnight look for the “T3” that will wear into a beautiful patina. 

A quality piece of hand assembled and tuned US craftsmanship that can be passed down generations with the support of the famous DPx Gear warranty and customer service.

Features

  • American bearing pivot hardware. Stainless steel caged bearing pivot hardware allows for rapid deployment and effortless closing.
  • American Grade 6 titanium alloy frame. A frame and lock made of U.S. made aerospace grade 6Al4v titanium sandblasted and then matte PVD coated. 
  • The world's finest U.S. forged blade steel. A blade forged from U.S. made Crucible Particle Metallurgy CPM S35VN martensitic stainless steel. 
  • Patented DPx Gear blade notch doubles as bottle opener and quick open feature. Designed to allow the knife to open faster than an automatic and to deploy the blade to the rear of the holder, keeping it safe from the assailant. This feature was also designed to open bottles and function as a pot lifter. Every feature on a DPx Gear knife is expected to do double duty.
  • Integral Hex drive. DPx Gear believes if you are going to carry around a quality knife, it better earn its keep. Our inclusion of a ¼” standard hex driver in the knife’s frame can be easily paired with a commonly available hex tool and turn your DPx HEST/F Urban into a multi tool.
  • Glass breaker. Our DPx HEST/F Urban has a tungsten carbide glass breaker, a potential life saving tool in the event of an auto accident or fire. Pelton designs his knives to be ergonomically held in the hand as a non-lethal deterrent.
  • Tri-gauge wire stripper jimping. The thumb grip (jimping) features three notches in the exact gauges to strip household, auto and timer wire for blasting or electronics. This patented DPx Gear design feature also provides an exact but comfortable grip for your thumb, with gloves or with bare hands, so there is no slipping when using your knife.
  • Fully reversible, deep carry pocket clip. A deep pocket clip means your pocket knife rides as low and unobtrusively as possible in your pocket. The angle of the clip over the frame lock adds additional support to the lock. The DPx HEST/F Urban is made from not just durable materials, but stain free materials. Even the clip, screws and hardware are designed to take harsh environments with ease.
  • A U.S. invented, tested and proven frame lock. The U.S. invented frame lock for bulletproof lockup. First used in Chris Reeves famous Sebenza® knives, it has become the standard locking feature for high-end custom knives. We added a stainless steel cap to reduce wear on the lock face.

With the crazy climate nowadays, we can all agree it's time to support America and American made products more.  Sure, you can get another high end knife in the same price range as the DPx HEST/F Urban Ti.  There are a lot of makers that stay rooted to American design, materials and craftsmanship - and that’s OK - but the DPx Gear Urban series was designed to be 100% American and put money into the pockets of hard working, talented Americans.
