San Diego, California based DPx Gear® unveiled their newest folding knife platform at the 2017 BLADE show in Atlanta, Georgia. Their first 100% U.S.A. sourced and manufactured folding knife.
The initial design was limited to 100 units and tested on Kickstarter. That run quickly sold out before it was produced. Now in partnership with Zac Brown Southern Grind, DPx Gear has perfected the production version of this high end blade.
"I designed my first knife in 2008, after being badgered for ten years by ESEE owner Jeff Randall,” says DPx Gear founder and adventurer Robert Young Pelton, “now, 24 US and International patents later, this is the latest rung of that journey into the high end survival gear business.”
Pelton is best known for surviving over two dozen wars. Pelton has become a commuter to places like Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia, South Sudan and more. DPx Gear was an outgrowth of his need for real world products used in such hostile places. Products designed and built without compromise.
“His design philosophy is based on his time on the front lines with everyone from U.S. Special Forces, covert units and even rebels,” says DPx Gear co-owner Lisa Pelton, a CPA who has seen her father disappear into conflicts, “our goal is to make a knife that will not fail and then back it with exceptional customer service.”
The idea of carefully sourcing and obsessively manufacturing every single part and component, using only the most durable materials is not a task taken lightly by Pelton. “We not only wanted to keep manufacturing and jobs in America but also raise the satisfaction bar for the owner. It’s a tough knife made without excuses, for a lifetime of use with refinements in design born from our patience to field test it to get it just right.” Pelton continues, “I treat my customers like friends and family, all the way from the initial idea to customer service. I don’t accept anything less than excellence”.

As told by Robert Young Pelton, founder of DPx Gear.
Long timers in Afghanistan will know that there actually is a Kabul Country Club. Technically it is called the Kabul Golf Club on Qargha Road . The nine hole course was opened in 1967, the heyday of Kabul, and its role as an international destination. Kabul was pitched to tourists as the "Switzerland of Asia", where travelers could arrive via the Pan Am-operated Ariana Airlines and stay at the newly built Kabul Intercontinental Hotel.
