DPx Gear HEST/F Triple Black Folder 3.25" Black Plain Niolox Blade, Titanium and G10 Handles - DPHSF105
RPDPHSF105: DPx H•E•S•T/F Triple Black Plain Edge
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.
