The long knife. For expeditions, long range hunts, and big jobs.

DPx Gear HEFT 6"

The new DPx Gear Hostile Environment Field Tool (HEFT) is designed and built for big-knife work. Whether that means skinning a moose, building a shelter, or carrying it on your next overseas adventure, the full-tang HEFT 6" is a tried-and-tested workhorse. The knife was designed by Robert Young Pelton and Tommaso Rumiciand handmade by LionSTEEL in Northern Italy.

The 5.75" (145mm) blade is made of Sleipner tool steel with a 60 Rockwell hardness. Sleipner steel is a chromium-vanadium-molybdenum alloy (7% Cr, 0.5% V, 2.5% Mo) much like D2 steel and characterized by its edge retention, ease of sharpening, and resistance to wear and chipping. The Sleipner steel also has excellent "tooth" for repetitive, fine cutting.

Because the knife is tool steel, and not stainless steel, it is easier to sharpen but may rust if not properly cared for. Rust only affects the appearance of the knife and not the performance. Like all DPx Gear knives, we ask that you use a whetstone or diamond sharpener to dress the edge, and NEVER use a motorized grinder.

The back of the blade is 0.2" (5mm) thick and features three sizes of wire strippers that serve as jimping. There's a lanyard hole and lashing points, and an integrated striker and pry bar on the pommel.

The HEFT 6" is expertly balanced for hours of hard use without causing blisters, hot spots, or bruising. The handle is hollow and designed to store anything from survival materials like fire starter and water-purification tablets. The scales are secured with two hybrid slotted/Allen screws.

The Woodsman features a traditional hunting-knife design and will be a complement to any hunter's kit. It features stonewashed steel and Brazilian Santos hardwood scales and weighs 9.25 oz. The Woodsman comes with an Italian, oil-tanned leather sheath.

DPx Gear knives are guaranteed against manufacturer defects for the life of the purchaser. DPx Gear reserves the right to repair or replace a knife under warranty at DPx Gear's discretion.

Pros: Blade Material, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Weight, Materials, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
H.E.F.T. Is a good name
This knife has great balance, the knife looks & feels indestructible in my hand lol. The stone wash they gave this knife is very fitting and attractive in person. Also the scales are also very nice plus they have a cavernous gap inside to keep your survival type items (Fishing line, hooks, matches, ect.) The sheath is made in Italy and is quite ridged (which I find to be a good thing). Also it is 100% leather and the snaps hold the knife very securely in it's place. However I had two problems with this knife. The first is that it wasn't as sharp as it should be, the second is that there was a very small spot of rust under one of the scales. To me those two are minor problems but because I had those two problems I gave it a 4. After it was sharpened with a ceramic rod it would cut through hair like butter. All in all I would say if your thinking of getting this knife go for it. It is a very capable and dependable knife.
