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
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!
...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

Sleeping in the jungle is probably one of the most unpleasant parts of tropical travel. Like clockwork, the rain pours at night along with some insects that go off at 6:30pm sharp, later on rodents, insects and all manner of large and unnamed species will crawl, flutter, slither and hop into your life.
Pelton says of jungle sleeping arrangements: "Although I spent years sleeping directly on the ground usually with a tarp, I would not recommend it for the squeamish. In some jungles, you can actually drown if you don’t pick your spot wisely. Worse is the relentless pursuit of biting or stinging insects to explore every inch of your body. Not to mention how miserable it can be to unglue yourself from the mud at dawn."
The ideal method of sleeping is to copy the locals. Use a hammock but one that has a bit of western technology thrown in. I now swear by the SAS style jungle hammock with built in bug screen and an overhanging tarp. All you need is some rope and carabiners depending on the location. A cheap fleece blanket and your headlamp and you are good to go.
