For the last 6 months I have been waiting for this knife. As I was opening the box, all I was hoping for is that this knife would be close to the quality that my sebenza is. I can say this with ZERO reservation.... #sebenzakiller@dpxgear you guys knocked it out of the park. You have to make more, I need a few of these. Hands down the best folder i've ever owed. @robertvickphotography


Good Afternoon!

I just wanted to take a moment and let you know I received the knife, and its incredible!

Its obvious that a lot of time and effort went into its production, as the fit and finish is fantastic! I cant wait to see how the battleship grey titanium wears/breaks in with use.I have most of DPx's knives, but the Urban is my favorite You have truly outdone yourselves on this project, I am extremely happy to have been a part of it!

The Urban is a beauty! I do love the action, smooth and quick! Thanks again for making a quality product!

Thanks again!

Daryl the results of the campaign. I have some of the larger HEST/F and one of the HEAT knives and a few of the Aculus knives (including a Blackwater). I have to say I think this is the perfect middle ground between the larger HEST and the HEAT for me. The bead blast finish has a wonderful texture.

Got mine today. What a great knife. Couldn't be happier. I'm torn between adding it to my collection or using it as an EDC, should have bought two.

Received mine this morning! I could not be more pleased in the quality and workmanship. Opens smooth as silk. Solid feel and built like a tank! The extras were very much appreciated. I really like the sheath. Smells good too. The wait was well worth it, because: the final product reeks with quality and beauty!!!

Thanks and congratulations to#dpxgear for delivering the best#madeinamerica #kickstarter campaign I've ever supported. This blade is top notch and boasts an incredible feature-set for its size. Small squabbles aside, the overall quality is excellent, and I greatly look forward to putting the #hestf #urban through its titanium scale - S30V steel - bottle cap torquing - glass breaking - screw-driving - and wire-stripping paces. @slicksd
