The DPx HEST, or Hostile Environment Survival Tool, is for the big tasks. The original EDC fixed blade survival knife for expeditions, long range hunts, and or just getting to and from your job. The concept created by Robert Pelton from his experience in over 120 countries is a perfect combination of size and utility. The ergonomic handle is designed for hours of intense camp work without blisters or bruising. The chunky scales are solid, balanced and hide a storage compartment.
