DPx Gear Introduces the First Run of the HEST/F Urban Titanium Knife.
The production version of the hard use, Every Day Carry (EDC) folding knife that took Kickstarter by storm is now shipping. The first 300 numbered units of the mid-tech folding knife made by Robert Young Pelton’s DPx Gear in partnership with Zac Brown’s Southern Grind are ready to make their way to expectant customers.
“We have worked long and hard to design and build an all-American pocket folder,” said DPx Gear owner Robert Young Pelton. “We are thrilled to find a manufacturing partner in Southern Grind, American craftsmen who share our vision and constantly exceed our expectations.”
The DPx HEST/F Urban “Ti” hits the booming EDC market with a compact, no compromise urban tool. The knife features a 3” inch sword grind blade crafted from CPM S35VN steel, DPx Gear’s patented quick open feature, a reversible, deep carry, titanium pocket clip, a stainless steel lock bar insert, a tungsten carbide glass breaker, wire stripper jimping, and an overall strength that is proportionally stronger than the Urban’s famous bigger brother: the DPx HEST/F 2.0 hard use folding knife.
“Southern Grind is honored to be manufacturing high end, heavy use knives for DPx Gear. We are selective in who we partner with and when you see the new DPx Gear HEST/F Urban “Ti” you will understand why this was an easy decision,” said Southern Grind G.M. Jeff Beatty.
