Description
RPDPHSF127: DPx H•E•S•T/F Triple Black Combo Edge
DPx Gear
 
In 2012 DPx Gear released a limited run of 500 of the HEST/F 2.0 Triple Black Special Edition which went on to win that year's Blade Show's Most Innovative Imported Design award. The limited run came with a unique skull tool constructed with an embedded, handmade Pyser SAS compass. Due to the overwhelming demand for that knife, DPx Gear has now added the HEST/F Triple Black to its production line of knives but this time around, the knife requires no special tool for adjustment. Not only does this allow for easier field adjustment, it reduces the cost of the knife so this unique hard use folder is accessible to even more customers.

The HEST/F Triple Black is an extremely low-profile knife designed for law enforcement and military use where a superior cutting edge and low visual signature are priorities. The 3.25" German Niolox corrosion resistant blade is matte black TiCN PVD coated to increase hardness and concealability. One side of the frame is scaled in grip textured black American G10 polymer. The other slab is 6Al4V titanium alloy that is black TiCN PVD coated. 

Like the other DPx HEST/F models, the Triple Black comes with the patented RotoBlock to lock the folder open. Three sizes of wire strippers serve as unique and slip-proof jimping. A removable glass breaker screws into the butt of the knife, and the hex driver in the handle may be used with the knife open or closed.

Best knife for the money
I bought this to replace my daily carry {Benchmade}. At first glance you can see the craftsmanship and practicality of this knife. I have many knives but none have actually made me respect it on this level. I use this every day for one thing or another, and yes I use the bottle opener almost daily, and absolutely no sign of wear and still holding a perfect edge. The only issue I noticed with mine(and my brother noticed with his as well) is the tightness of the blade. I just loosened it slightly and its perfect.Thank you Knife Center ,and DPX , for Hassle free purchase, fast shipping, and best knife you can buy for under $400.00.

Get one now
I purchased this knife on a weekend and was at the door on Wednesday. I couldn't be happier with this knife, or the outstanding service from knife center. Only complaint I had was the blade was tight and had to loosen it just a touch, most of the time it's deployed from the pocket so didn't matter,and it's fixed. Best knife for the money, best knife for $100-$200 more.

Awesome do it all folder
I bought this a few months ago and this folder is just an all around dream! I havent been able to find many reviews or even forum comments on this particular knife. I see alot of negative criticism on some HEST 2.0 models but those have nothing to do with this beautiful knife (see nutnfancy youtube review where he is testing the claim that the 2.0 HEST is has good has a fixed blade knife which its not, ITS A FOLDER, but I digress, DPX DOES state that these hard use folders, this one included, can be used in the same manner. Would I use it that way? No, I have a Winkler II Belt knife for my main fixed blade). When you hold this blade it just feels "right" to me and is just SO light and well balanced? The G10 scales are very aggressive and provide excellent grip. The jimping/wire cutters also help for when you choke up for an even better grip for thrusting/ fighting. So far I have used the knife for my box cutting/opening needs, I am constantly using its bottle opener to pop brews and yes I have actually used the glass breaker on the bottom and broke out a driver side window on an old Honda on the second swing (was timid on first swing).The glass breaker would come on real handy say you had to break out of your own car. I have abused the hell out of this folder, short of batoning with it, and still no play and have only had to light sharpen it once. Another plus is the Nilox is very easy to sharpen at least with a Spyderco Sharpmaker. I don't usually buy knives not made in the USA, but when I put my hands on this one, I knew it would be my new EDC carry knife! The only knock I have is maybe it could open a little faster/easier. Im sure it will get better over time. Love this knife!
