abunda_amazon_reviews I've never been a knife expert but I've owned, flipped, and swapped so many over the years (Emerson, ZT, Spyderco, Cold Steel, Kershaw, Benchmade) that my tastes finally solidified to the point where I carried just an Emerson cqc7 (unwaved). For seven years. I actually owned a hest five years ago but that was during the prime of my collecting days and I flipped it when something else came along and got my attention. Long story short, it was a bad decision and I lost the desire to collect a long time ago, but I always regretted letting go of that hest. So I sold the Emerson and got a new one. I only bore you with this non-story just to give you some frame of reference. I don't know everything about knives, but I know more than jack $#!+. I've learned what I like in a edc package and this one checks every box. Here's what I like: Blade- The blade shape is perfect and just the right length for nearly any edc task. D2 is a fine choice, imo. Takes a frightening edge and it's easy to maintain. The notch works as a "wave" and also a pot-holder. It'll open your beer too if need be. Handle: this is a big selling point for me, personally. I'm a big guy with big mits. A smaller, hard-use knife needs to have some solid real-estate for those hard pull-cuts and I'm proud to report that Robert Young Pelton knocked it out of the park with this design. Like everything else with this knife, it just feels right. The way the lock bar and pocket clip are positioned never get in the way or cause any "hot spots" under hard use. It feels good in the hand opened or closed so should you ever be in a position where you have to employ the glass-breaker, you're in good shape. Lockup- I've owned several titanium framelocks over the years and every one of them developed some up and down blade play and had to be sent in for service. Whether or not it's an inherent design flaw is subjective, but titanium will eventually wear against steel. The lockup on mine is solid and hasn't moved in the two weeks I've been carrying it. Granted, I'm not one who uses the wave method and I don't like to snap them open either so ymmv. The warranty service with DPX is unconditional and no questions asked, so there's that as well. I'm not anticipating any problems with the lockup but I do want to point out the warranty service. They back their product. Now on to the things I'm less ecstatic about but can live with: Branding- this is aesthetic and it doesn't bother me but there are logos everywhere on this blade. If that chafes you then look in to the triple black version. Marketing- this seems to trip a lot of people up. The Hest has been marketed as a do it all, invincible super knife so that if you ever find yourself in an episode of "Lost" where you have to step up like John Locke and save the day, this is all you'll ever need to build a shelter, kill and skin a boar, build a fire, fend off a grizzly, etc. The bold claims have triggered many to take it to task by batonning the thing through logs (which I've never once had to do in my 37 years on Earth) and then exclaim to the survival Gods that "this thing doesn't measure up!" when they're left with some blade play. Let it also be said that I've never seen it fail. Not once. Gimmicks- once again, this is something I've heard mentioned so I'll address it. Nearly every thing on this knife is designed to have some sort of dual-purpose (the lanyard hole will take a hex bit, the rotoblock prevents over-travel of the lock bar, jimping works as wire-strippers, you get the point). It's smart engineering that gives you the most possible from a compact package and none of it ever gets in the way of the primary function. Rotoblock- this is one of those things I could do with or without. When opened, a quarter turn of the disc will prevent the lock bar from moving, thus not shutting the blade on your digits while in John Locke mode. It won't exactly make a folder a fixed blade, but as I mentioned before, I've seen this thing put through horrendous torture and...it never failed. Most of us won't use it and all one has to do is tighten it down to prevent accidental engagement. Just throwing that out there. Final thoughts: For my money, this is my go-to for any situation. At just under 8 inches, it's ideal for carrying anywhere and performs like a knife twice its size. You get a lot for the price and the warranty is unbeatable. If you're after a good solid edc and you're on the fence, I do hope this long, indulgent write-up helps you with your decision. You can't go wrong.;;Reviewed in the United States on March 16, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Little Big Knife;;Cutter1;;;I purchased the 2.0 H.E.S.T. because I had always wanted the fixed blade version but hesitated pulling the trigger on one, mainly because a fixed blade knife doesn’t always mix well with all occasions, so to speak.

I haven’t had to make use of them, but it’s glad to know that they are there just-in-case I have too. The blade itself is a very hefty piece of German D2 steel manufactured by the Italian company Lion Steel. Its thick, it’s coated, and ready for anything. I did some research about sharpening the D2 blades, mostly due to their hardness, and even contacted DPX about it …. Here’s what I was told. The ideal way to sharpen your DPX was a sharpening system from a company like Wicked Edge Systems (which are really pricey, but are probably worth it . . . maybe?) but a sharpening stone, whetstone or a diamond sharpener can be used. The only warning I got about sharpening the DPX H.E.S.T. is to NOT use a motorized grinder to sharpen it. There are a ton of knife enthusiast or “connoisseur’s” whom are taking DPX’s claim that this is a survivalist style knife to the max and are reviewing this knife by batoning though all kinds of crap (wood, aluminum cans to the point where the knife will show extreme wear) and giving it bad reviews.

Everything functioned fined, I just wasn't super impressed, that is straight out of the box. If fact, I put it back in the box because I decided to return it. However, time got away from me for a few days and I never did return it. A week goes by, and I decided to revisit the knife for another look. I thought, there can't be that many people lovin this knife with out merit. So, I thought I'd carry it for a week. That week with the knife changed my mind completely!!! Wow! It carries in my pocket like a dream. I don't even know it's there. The feel in my hand has now confirmed in my mind how much better a knife can be with high-end materials. The blade it's self is amazing. It's shape alone is perfect for just about any task. It's ability to hold an edge is awesome. I've been using this knife daily now for over a month cutting all sorts of things, I have not sharpened it yet, and it can still shave hair. The color has really grown on me, and I now love it. I have also rewired over 8 lamps using the wire strippers, works like a charm. It is truly a beautiful knife. Last week, I jumped out of a U-Haul truck with the knife in my lap. It went flying across a concrete parking lot. When I picked it up to the see the damage, much to my surprise, there was none!!! It was perfect. Such an awesome knife. I love it and have no need for another folder. It's tough, it's light and it is elegant. I highly recommend this knife to anyone!!! No regrets here.

The color has really grown on me, and I now love it. I have also rewired over 8 lamps using the wire strippers, works like a charm. It is truly a beautiful knife. Last week, I jumped out of a U-Haul truck with the knife in my lap. It went flying across a concrete parking lot. When I picked it up to the see the damage, much to my surprise, there was none!!! It was perfect. Such an awesome knife. I love it and have no need for another folder. It's tough, it's light and it is elegant. I highly recommend this knife to anyone!!! No regrets here. One year update: After having this knife and carrying it on my side everyday for one year, I still get excited to pull it out of my pocket. I look for reasons to use it! It looks just as good as the day I bought it. I have had zero issues, everything functions exactly as it should and perhaps even better!!! I still recommend this to anyone. It has far exceeded my highest expectations!!! I have attached a one year photo of this most amazing knife!!!
