Drawing on his experience in dozens of dangerous environments and harsh field conditions, Robert Young Pelton developed the H.E.S.T. (Hostile Environment Survival Tool) to be a reliable everyday carry fixed blade for operators and adventurers alike.

The DPx HEST Original fixed blade is manufactured in the United States by Rowen. It features an “over-built” blade crafted from high carbon 1095 steel, hardened to a 57-58 Rockwell hardness. Every aspect of the DPx HEST has been thoroughly thought out, from its balance, lashing points, thumb control, wire breaker and even the ability to remove the hollow Micarta handles using its brass screws for use as a neck knife.

This model has a desert tan coated 1095 steel blade with a plain cutting edge and a canvas Micarta handle. Includes a Kydex sheath, cord and lock.

My favorite fixed blade.
Joshua N.
I have at least half a dozen high end hard use fixed blades from tops and ESEE. This is hands down my favorite. It's the perfect size. For open or concealed daily carry. 1095 carbon is one of my favorite steels. Takes a razor sharp edge and is very easy to sharpen even with the most basic of tools. The powder coat it perfect and very tough. The ergonomics are perfect, I have medium sized hands. And fits perfectly in whatever grip you favor with room to spare. Unlike a lot of knifes where any extra tools built into the knife ( pry bar, wire breaker, bottle opener) they all work and were well designed. I was even able to fit a small ferro rod, a few fish hooks plus line, tinder tabs, and a length of thread and a needle. My favorite fixed blade by far.
