DPX GEAR® CELEBRATES TEN YEARS IN BUSINESS WITH TWO VERY LIMITED RUN EDITION KNIVES IN BOHLER M390 - THE DPX HEST 6 DECADE AND THE DPX ACULUS FLIPPER
DPx Gear, Inc. has released two limited run tenth anniversary knife models - the DPx HEST 6 Decade and the DPx Aculus Flipper.
The fixed blade combative knife, the DPx HEST 6 Decade, is available in 100 numbered units and features hollow Micarta™ scales and Bohler M390 blade steel. Also in M390 and featuring a new hollow grind blade, is DPx Gear's first flipper release: the Aculus Flipper. Both knife models are available exclusively from DPx Gear and ready for immediate shipment.
"When DPx Gear began we started with one idea and one knife. Make the best quality knife for the best customers," says Robert Young Pelton, founder of DPx Gear on his first design, the HEST Original. It was a surprisingly simple but strong survival knife.
The original HEST (Hostile Environment Survival Tool) featured paper Micarta handles, a multi-purpose design, large hollowed out and balanced handle, pry bar, wire breaker and managed to be both light and strong. It was an instant hit.
A decade later DPx Gear has made and sold a lot of knives to a lot of great customers who appreciate our “field first” design philosophy. Designing a knife based on what is needed not what the latest marketing trend is. Using the right steel for each application, creating classic designs, testing, tweaking, testing some more and only after RYP has used, abused, passed around and beaten up his designs do we go into production.
To make sure the execution matches the concept we only work with the world’s finest knife makers in America and Northern Italy.
So what did we learn in ten years? Keep it strong, keep it simple, keep it light, elegant and balanced. And make it for a lifetime of use, building in the pursuit of patina and extreme hard use as a badge of honor not an exception.
