Hostile Environment Survival Tools are designed for in extremis use. No failure, no questions asked warranty and service. For those who don't read the fine print or heed warnings. DPx HEST are no compromise companions for daily use.

The DPx HEST or Hostile Environment Survival Tool is the knife that started it all...the original, brutal-use everyday carry fixed survival blade. 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 couldn't 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 conceal-ability, utility and fail-safe operation in an innovative blade.

The HEST features a 0.19 inch blade crafted from D2 steel with the a Rockwell hardness of 55-62 HRC made by Toor Knives of San Diego, CA. You will find every aspect of the HEST Original thought out: the balance, lashing points, thumb control, wire breaker and even the ability to remove the hollow, Micarta handles for use as a neck knife or field expedient tool.

The HEST comes with a contoured KYDEX sheath with belt clip kit, and plenty of adjustable lashing points.
