DPx Gear HEFT 4 MilSpec Promotion with Licensed to Kill Book (DPHFX010)
HEFT 4 MilSpec
The DPx Gear Hostile Environment Fighting Tool (HEFT) 4 may be the most balanced knife we offer. It's discrete enough to keep a low profile, but it's big enough to handle jobs that would compromise most four-inch knives.
The 3.94" (100.08mm) blade is high-performance, German-made Lohmann Niolox stainless steel and is cryo-hardened to a Rockwell Hardness of <59. Lohmann Niolox steel is prized for its ability to hold up to abuse and retain cutting edge. By using Niolox steel, we've combined the best qualities of stainless and high-carbon steels to provide you with a superior hard use tool.
Because Niolox has high-carbon steel characteristics, it is easier to sharpen but can develop corrosion if not coated or cared for. Dry your knife before sheathing or storing it. 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 spine of the blade is an impressive 0.19" (4.83mm) thick, and features three sizes of wire strippers that serve as jimping. The knife has a lanyard hole and lashing points, and an integrated striker and pry bar on the pommel.
The handle scales are secured with two 304 stainless steel hybrid slotted Allen screws. The scales conceal a storage compartment designed for small items like fire starter or water-purification tablets. The handle also has a 1/4" magnetized hex driver near the pommel.
The HEFT 4 was designed by Tommaso Rumici with input from Robert Young Pelton and is manufactured by LionSteel of Maniago, Northern Italy.
The MilSpec is a low-profile, high-performance fighting tool. The HEFT MilSpec is an excellent choice for law enforcement, security and military use. The contoured handle is made of black American G10 scales. The knife weighs 6.95 oz. and comes in a black Cordura sheath.

Robert Young Pelton first became aware of the phenomenon of hired guns in the War on Terror when he met a covert team of contractors on the Afghanistan/Pakistan border in the fall of 2003. Pelton soon embarked on a globe-spanning odyssey to penetrate and understand this shadowy world, ultimately delivering stunning insights into the way private soldiers are used.
Enter a blood-soaked world of South African mercenaries and tribal fighters backed by ruthless financiers. Drop into Baghdad's Green Zone, strap on body armor, and take a daily high-speed ride with a doomed crew of security contractors who dodge car bombs and snipers just to get their charges to the airport. Share a drink in a chic hotel bar with wealthy owners of private armies who debate the best way to stay alive in war zones.
Licensed to Kill spans four continents and three years, taking us inside the CIA's dirty wars; the brutal contractor murders in Fallujah and the Alamo-like sieges in Najaf and Al Kut; the Deep South contractor training camps where ex–Special Operations soldiers and even small town cops learn the ropes; the contractor conventions where macho attendees swap bullet-punctuated tales and discuss upcoming gigs; and the grim Central African prison where contractors turned failed mercenaries pay a steep price.
The United States has encouraged the use of the private sector in all facets of the War on Terror, placing contractors outside the bounds of functional legal constraints. With the shocking clarity that can come only from firsthand observation, Licensed to Kill painstakingly deconstructs the most controversial events and introduces the pivotal players. Most disturbingly, it shows that there are indeed thousands of contractors—with hundreds more being produced every month—who've been given a license to kill, their services available to the highest bidder.
