Bullet-pocked and bomb-shattered buildings seem empty. Clusters of fighters in plain-clothes wave while armored bulldozers roar by.
As we creep toward the ocean, as far as the walls of shipping containers and earthen berms allow us, a familiar crack of Dragunov bullet splits the air. My driver stops dead the middle of an exposed intersection, somehow wondering if it was friend or foe.
Fighters under cover wave us to get the hell out of the street."

“The goal was to stay within the same price point as our first folder came out in 2010. An aggressive concept considering the cost of premium materials and what has happened over the last ten years. We’ve enhanced the knife durability, simplified the design, retained the same hard use features, and still offer our famous Skull Tool,” says DPx Gear founder, Robert Young Pelton.
“A proven, heirloom quality knife, crafted by an award winning manufacturer, at a reasonable price with a lifetime warranty. It’s the perfect product for someone looking to get past gas station knives or low priced folders.”
