DPx HEST II Milspec KnifeReview by Keith M
My lord! What an excellent survival/combat knife! Its not too big nor too small, but just right for any emergency I may face. The design of the knife covers a multitude of emergency duties and self-defense situations. A "high class" product in a superior packaging system, this knife stays close by my side on a daily basis. I would recommend this knife to anyone who wants practicality in a modern, high class knife that may save your "bacon" one day! (Posted on 10/21/13)
Fantastic knife! Everything I expected and MORE!Review by Peter
The DPX HEST II Milspec hits a "home run"

First, thanks to Ann in Customer Service. Just received the knife and I am absolutely delighted.

Knife arrived on time as promised. Packaging upscale befitting a quality knife. Great sheath with top notch materials, well done. The knife itself is super. Great feel, nice jimping, a perfect size, excellent grip, and high-end steel.

Now my biggest problem is what DPX Gear knife to buy next. This will go to my collection, so no commentary on its utility and obvious toughness. But I have zero doubt that it is a knife that will sustain hard use in harsh environments and never fail its owner. Buy one or two , you can't go wrong. This is one thoughtfully designed blade ..not so big it elicits an "eek" from non-knife folks but large enough for any task from utility to hunting to tactical to self-defense. No I do not own stock in DPX but as a new collector into high end production knives and some customs this would still be a terrific value at twice the price.

Apparent quality on par with my custom Randall's, Reeves, Al Mars, Spyderco, Cold Steel, ZT, and other higher end semi-custom / custom knives ... Did I say this knife was razor sharp? It is hair popping sharp out of the box. Color me very satisfied.
