“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.”
The folding knives I design for DPx Gear carry a similar look. Beefy, utilitarian and thick. A number of customers that are used to more traditional knives are surprised when at the heft and feel of their first DPx product. Imposingly well built and yet balanced when used. It is not by accident.
As told by Robert Young Pelton, founder of DPx Gear.
Long timers in Afghanistan will know that there actually is a Kabul Country Club. Technically it is called the Kabul Golf Club on Qargha Road . The nine hole course was opened in 1967, the heyday of Kabul, and its role as an international destination. Kabul was pitched to tourists as the "Switzerland of Asia", where travelers could arrive via the Pan Am-operated Ariana Airlines and stay at the newly built Kabul Intercontinental Hotel.
