  • DPx Gear Announces a New Finish: Assault Stonewashed

    Effective August 2015, the DPx Gear Assault line of knives goes even harder with the Assault Stonewashed finish. In keeping with the Assault’s low visibility, special operations focus, we have added a finish that is more durable and resistant to surface scratches. This new version will feature stonewashed Black TiCN PVD coating instead of the solid matte black TiCN PVD coating. This added step of stonewashing the coating gives the knife an excellent patina and wear on the knife will be less visible but the low visual signature will remain. We are confident this change will better meet the needs of our customers. DPx Gear has already released several of our knife models in this new finish (also referred to as "Grey" finish on our folders) including the DPx HEFT 6 plain edge (shown in picture) and serrated edge, DPx HEST 6 serrated edge, and the DPx HEAT/F (in Elmax and Niolox steels). Look out for the DPx HEFT 4, DPx HEFT 6 Razorback, and DPx HEST II Assault Stonewashed knives coming later this year... Read More -->
  • Press Release - DPx Gear® Introduces The DPx Aculus™ 3D, A Monoblock Gentleman’s Knife Carved From A Solid Block Of Titanium Alloy

    San Diego, CA – July 29, 2015 – DPx Gear, Inc. has released the new monoblock frame gentleman’s knife, the DPx Aculus 3D. It is available in a limited run of 100 pieces available exclusively from DPx Gear and ready for immediate shipment. The DPx Aculus is a hard use gentleman’s knife carved from a single block of 6Al4v titanium alloy. Designed by adventurer Robert Young Pelton after seeing the poor quality and limited strength of traditional military and law enforcement knives, he decided to create an incredibly strong and compact knife. The Aculus is an every day carry tool with beautifully fluid lines, exquisite ergonomics, and a tough blade of the highest quality and finish. The frame is a single seamless machined piece of art, elegantly held together with only two screws. The Aculus was designed for undercover work, where professionals must dress in formal wear but must carry tools that cannot fail. The ergonomics had to work as a knife but also as a concealed hand held tool capable of dealing non-lethal pain to attackers. The DPx Aculus 3D features a unique 3D diamond pattern for superior grip, a tungsten carbide glass breaker with replacement flat head screw, a deep carry pocket clip, razor sharp Niolox tool steel, and DPx Gear’s no-questions-asked lifetime warranty. MSRP for the DPx Aculus 3D is $400 and can be purchased only by visiting www.dpxgear.com/aculus.  Product Specifications MSRP: $400.00 SKU: DPACF003 Blade Length: 3.26” / 83 mm Blade Steel: Stonewashed 61 HRC Niolox tool steel Blade Thickness: 0.14” / 3.50 mm Blade Finish Stonewashed Overall Length: 7.71” / 196 mm Closed...
