USA Made DPx HEST 6 Milspec


The DPx HEST 6 Milspec is now made in the USA by White River Knives.

A knife that is virtually indestructible even in the most demanding survival situations. Built to get you home alive, the DPx HEST 6 is your ticket out of adversity. It's the last survival knife you'll buy and is a hard working blade that is ideal for military and rugged outdoor pursuits. Ideal for both the demands of bushcraft and wilderness survival use, the HEST 6 Milspec also comes into play as a self defense weapon and edged tool.

Made to be hammered, abused, and stressed to its limits, the blade will stay razor sharp though extended use, requiring only minor strop. The ergonomic American G10 laminate handle scales with ergonomic grips conceal a cavity for fire starter, fishhooks, and other survival gear. The hollow handle gives the knife a forward balance point that makes cutting, chopping, and hacking less fatiguing.

The 6" sword-grind blade is machined from 35vN steel tempered to a Rockwell hardness index of 61. The ultimate combination of cutting tooth, strength and durability. The knife also features unique jimping on the spine and a striker/bone cracker/pry bar on the pommel.

The DPx HEST 6 Milspec comes in a black KYDEX sheath with an integrated belt clip and includes a glow in the dark Mr. DP sticker.
