Product Description

DPx HEST Original, 550 Cord Wrapped
The DPx HEST or Hostile Environment Survival Tool is the knife that started it all...the original, brutal-use everyday carry fixed survival blade. Now available without scales and wrapped in your choice of over 5 feet 550 cord. For those who want a simple, light carry to get the job done.

Made in America, used worldwide. The DPx HEST Original changed the way professionals think of a survival blade. It had to be to be useful and it couldnt fail when deployed. The HEST concept was created by adventurer and DPx Gear founder Robert Young Pelton who applied his time in three dozen conflicts and adventures through more than 120 countries to come up with the perfect balance of concealability, utility and fail-safe operation in an innovative blade.

The HEST features a 0.19 (5mm) blade crafted from high carbon 1095 spring steel with the famous Rowen heat treatment that results in a 57-58 Rockwell hardness.

The HEST comes with a KYDEX sheath, paracord and cord lock, and belt clip kit.
