After a global search the firm of Lion Steel was selected to manufacture this knife based on their long heritage of quality, award winning folders. The DPx H•E•S•T folder is the collaboration of Robert Young Pelton (World’s Most Dangerous Places fame) and ESEE Knives. The DPx H•E•S•T Folder is based on Pelton’s hard time in dangerous places, ESEE’s commitment to customer satisfaction and Lion Steel’s mastery of manufacturing quality and tolerances.

    Can’t wait to get my hands on this folding version of the H.E.S.T fixed blade.My only gripe,i wish the blade was longer on the fixed version,as i would on the folder,say 3.5-3.75inch,instead of the,just over 3in.That aside,i just love the look and style of this folding version,and put it to the test in the field.
