DPx HEST 6 Milspec with Kydex Sheath (Released After Nov 2019)


Introducing the DPx HEST 6 Milspec with Kydex sheath.  Models released after November 2019 feature a Kydex sheath vs the standard Cordura option.

The HEST 6 Milspec is 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 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 German Uddeholm Niolox niobium-enhanced stainless tool steel tempered to a Rockwell hardness index of 59. 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 a reversible DOTS belt clip attachment, made by Springer Precision.  This clip allows you to position your sheath at different carry angles, ensuring comfort and quick deployment. The DOTS attachment will accept belts up to 2 inches. 

This clip itself can be adjusted to fit your exact belt height (up to 2") and has an easy release button on the bottom and clicks in easily to be secured.

The sheath is designed and produced by zZz Customs in Oceanside, California.  It features a drain hole at the end and equally spaced holes that can be used for adjusting the height of the clip, securing more attachments, changing the angle of carry and lashing points.
