DPX Hest

I carry this knife with me almost everyday. The blade is just the right size for almost any task and the overall construction is rock solid. One of my favorite parts about the knife is the length of the blade. Being under 3.5" means that it is legal to carry the knife almost anywhere.

Dpx customer for life

I use this as my edc knife. Its perfect size for belt carry, I did buy another sheath from Dpx for mine as mine had the DeSantis sheath which I didn't like (personal preference). The knife holds a edge well, and has made me a Dpx fan for sure. I'm soon to order another Dpx as soon as I decide which one I want! (Another great point, Dpx has extra micarta handles and better sheath's that can be ordered cheap and the customer service they provide is superb)

Practical everyday carry knife

An everyday carry kind of knife, Sharp, easy to handle, lightweight...sometimes I forget that I have it on my belt. During the short time that I had this knife, I have used it for fishing (cutting lines), 3-day backpacking trip (cutting 550-cord and using the bottle opener/pot lift notch), and during a BBQ where it was used to cut some steaks as well as to open some beers. I used 550-cord to lash it on my belt. There's some give, but for me, it's OK. Depending on the task at hand or if I am sitting or standing, I can move the knife along the length of the belt so that it doesn't dig into my sides.

Tough!

Solid knife that feels great in my hand. It hits a sweet spot: not too big, yet able to do serious work. It's a keeper!

Nice, heavy well-built tool, not just a knife

Well-crafted hand-tool. More like a slab of steel with an edge. Took it out on its inaugural camping trip. Cut rope, food, opened a few bottles. Feels nice in the hands. Holds an edge. That pry bar on the end could be a mean weapon. Heft also makes a good hammer.
