Popular blog Breach Bang Clear had a chance to check out the DPx HEST/F Urban and provided their thoughts in their recent article, "A Knife for Dangerous Places: DPx HEST/F Urban". Their review style intermixes facts with hilarious GIFs and asides and makes a great read.
The latest issue of Recoil Magazine included an article on carbon fiber knives and they bragged that "the DPx HEST/F Shred has the most unique integration of carbon fiber into its design in comparison to the rest of the lineup." We agree.
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.

DPx Gear's inner 1980s hair band groupie was thrilled to be contacted by Mötley Crüe's production team to acquire some DPx knives for bassist and knife fan, Nikki Sixx. He made some great purchases and has been showing off his DPx HEST Original Fire 550 Paracord-wrapped blade via his Instagram account, @nikkisixxpixx. The Crüe is currently on their final worldwide tour. No word yet as to whether or not the DPx crew will get any backstage passes when they roll through San Diego this December.
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.
The 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.
