RPDPHSF127: DPx HEST/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.

Cons: Lock Ease of Use
Decent bang for your buck
This is a very reasonable priced tank of a knife, worth every cent. Only quibble I have is when flicked open the frame locks and I mean locks to the point you have to use two hands to unlock and if flick hard enough must be pried apart. If they would have put some heated steel that could be replaced in the frame side of the lock it might take away the locking to hard issue. I don’t know I’m a hobby knife maker and my main blades are fixed so that information might not relieve the hard locking just observation of other frame lockers. I like the pocket deployment but it scares the begessis out of by standers,kind funny though. The best lube I have found to help the hard locking is fluorinated grease applied sparingly to the blade lock surface but I still can’t flick it like I want too. Worth the money? Yes but have patience with the frame lock and the steel used in this knife so far taken everything I’ve thrown at it and is still sharp with no chipping of the blade either. If I lost it or it got stolen I probably would buy another one, AT THIS POINT, down the road might be a different story depending on how the blade holds up. This is a new steel to me. The bottle opener works good if ya know what I’m saying was the first thing I tested!

Cons: None
Very cool knife
Perfect knife for my needs, quick release / bottle opener is great. thick durable hard blade, holds a great edge, but takes a while to sharpen. glassbreaker is a great addition, serrations are very sharp out of the box. Very well constructed deep carry, ergonomic, DPX have really improved on their previous knives, solved the problems they were critisized for. I think this knife will set them on track to being a big company in the future, will be critically acclaimed i a thinking. made with dangerous places in mind, if i end up in a sticky spot this is the knife i want. Very happy with it. Worth the money!! A+.

Cons: None
Great Edc knife
All around great knife for every day carry. Wicked sharp out of the box with easy to maintain serrations. Heavily built with a thick blade that may lack the finesse of a thinner blade, however this knife will take a beating. Locks up tight and easy to use one-handed. The G-10 scale makes for a sure grip even with wet or slippery hands. May be a little on the large side for some, but thats a matter of a person's size / and or preference
