Featured DPx Gear User: Officer Schaufler from Scranton, PA

October 02, 2015

FEATURED DPX GEAR USER: OFFICER DAN SCHAUFLER- SCRANTON, PA.

Patrolling the streets of North East Pennsylvania requires elite skill, knowledge and tools up for the challenge.

Officer Daniel Schaufler carries a DPx HEST/F knife on the job because he can depend on it in the field.  "I am a proponent of carrying a knife you can depend your life on. Yours are one of them," Dan says of DPx Gear knives.

In July of 2015, the dangers of his job hit very close to home when Schaufler's comrade, John Wilding, was injured on duty and later died as a result.  He left behind a young wife and children.

In order to raise money for John's family, a fundraiser called Wilding's Watch was created and a DPx HEAT/F Shred was auctioned off. 100% off the proceeds of the knife were donated by Schaufler to support Wilding's family.

The Differences Between the HEST/F 1.0 and 2.0

The Differences Between the HEST/F 1.0 and 2.0

September 16, 2015

BLADE PIVOT

  • The position of the blade pivot was moved.
  • The position of the touching point between blade and locking bar was moved; In the first run this point was 5.8 mm away from the blade pivot, the second run is 6.7mm.  This has reduced the movement; less power from the blade to locking bar.
  • You can not touch the edge with a finger when the blade is closed. There is more space from the edge to the back of the knife.

LOCKING BAR

  • The locking bar is longer. The thrust angle was reduced on the frame from 42° to 37.9°; this creates less twisting of the locking bar.

BLADE ANGLE

  • The angle in the heel of the blade was changed. The old one was 11°, the new one is round.

THUMB STUD

  • The thumb stud is 14.3 mm away from the blade pivot, the old one was 13.5 mm. This adjustment makes it easier to open the blade.

HANDLE

  • The bottom of the handle is larger, so no problem with tip of the blade sticking out of handle in a closed position.
  • There is more space on the G10 handle fora finger to unlock the locking bar.
  • The new thickness of the G-10 is 4.2 mm, vs. the old one, which was 3.2 mm.

SPACER

  • The spacer is longer, making a more solid knife.

LINER

  • The stainless steel liner has been removed.

Press Release - DPx Gear® Introduces The DPx Aculus™ 3D, A Monoblock Gentleman’s Knife Carved From A Solid Block Of Titanium Alloy

Press Release - DPx Gear® Introduces The DPx Aculus™ 3D, A Monoblock Gentleman’s Knife Carved From A Solid Block Of Titanium Alloy

July 29, 2015

San Diego, CA – July 29, 2015 – DPx Gear, Inc. has released the new monoblock frame gentleman’s knife, the DPx Aculus 3D. It is available in a limited run of 100 pieces available exclusively from DPx Gear and ready for immediate shipment.

DPx Aculus 3DThe DPx Aculus is a hard use gentleman’s knife carved from a single block of 6Al4v titanium alloy. Designed by adventurer Robert Young Pelton after seeing the poor quality and limited strength of traditional military and law enforcement knives, he decided to create an incredibly strong and compact knife. The Aculus is an every day carry tool with beautifully fluid lines, exquisite ergonomics, and a tough blade of the highest quality and finish. The frame is a single seamless machined piece of art, elegantly held together with only two screws. The Aculus was designed for undercover work, where professionals must dress in formal wear but must carry tools that cannot fail. The ergonomics had to work as a knife but also as a concealed hand held tool capable of dealing non-lethal pain to attackers.

The DPx Aculus 3D features a unique 3D diamond pattern for superior grip, a tungsten carbide glass breaker with replacement flat head screw, a deep carry pocket clip, razor sharp Niolox tool steel, and DPx Gear’s no-questions-asked lifetime warranty. MSRP for the DPx Aculus 3D is $400 and can be purchased only by visiting www.dpxgear.com/aculus.
