DPx Gear HEFT 6 Woodsman Fixed 6" Stonewash Blade, Wood Handles, Leather Sheath - DPHFX003
RPDPHFX003: DPx H.E.F.T. 6" Woodsman
The long knife. For expeditions, long range hunts, and big jobs.
The 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.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
Provides a traditional, natural look and feel to a modern tool. Wood absorbs shock well and is popular in axe handles.
