The DECADE version is the first of its kind for DPx Gear folders. A collectible celebration of RYP’s vision of personalized heirloom knives.  A knife that is shaped by the sweat and experience of the owner to become an heirloom. The limited edition of the HEST/F Classic Decade features raw canvas Micarta canvas scales and a stonewashed blade in Bohler CleanSteel M390 steel.  Micarta is an American cloth laminate developed in 1910. Created as an insulator, the material is shaped and colored by use.  The same American material used in the HEST Original and the sold out HEST 6 DECADE fixed blade designed for just one very famous Special Forces ODA.

The Micarta scale becomes your blank canvas, ready to be broken in and seasoned as you put it to hard use.   The more this material is used, the better it looks, or clean it up and start fresh. In ten, twenty, thirty years (or more), this once-in-a-lifetime knife will be unique to you.
