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!

Regards,

Matt M.


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

Thanks again!

...love 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

Plenty of great knives are being made overseas these days, but the bladesmith scene in the U.S. is thriving. From big companies and small shops, you can pick from a wide variety of stellar cutting tools, all crafted with care and precision in America. We selected a few folders and fixed-blade knives that will make any outdoor slicing, carving, or chopping task this summer easier and more enjoyable.

San Diego, CA -- May 25, 2020 -- Robert Young Pelton is known for working in and surviving the world’s wars. Whether it is Libya, South Sudan or Afghanistan, his designs for DPx Gear are the direct result of his hard won experience. The constant use, testing, upgrading and real world punishment of his designs have resulted in the third generation of the famous DPx Gear HEST/F (“Hostile Environment Survival Tool/Folding”) knife, now ten years old.

Weaving our way through deserted back alleys, I can tell we’ve arrived at the front. Not just from the noise of heavy 14.5s, mortar hits, and RPGs, but because driver Hussam hunches down and peers up through the windshield of our grimy Toyota pickup. He’s looking for drones.

“Are you afraid of the drones?” I ask.

“I am not afraid because I am putting my life for my country,” he answers.

I’m not totally buying it. Although the fighters I’m with are young, they’re well-seasoned. They fought in the 2011 Revolution, but now they really don’t have a plan on how to deal with this new threat. All while being partly encircled by the forces of General Khalifa Haftar.
