The 6″ DPx HEFT Assault, or Hostile Environment Field Tool, is for the big tasks. When your life depends on the tools you choose. The meaty feel of a Sleipner tool steel blade in a DPx Gear, field-designed frame is hard to replicate. This brutal-use blade is designed for no-compromise, all-day, all-week hard work. The six inch blade is made of Sleipner steel, a chromium-molybdenum-vanadium alloyed tool steel that boasts extreme resistance to wear, resistance to chipping, edge retention, hardness (60 HRC), and excellent “toothiness” in repetitive, fine cutting. The work blade comes with an integrated striker pommel, bottle opener/pry bar, lanyard hole and lashing point. The knife weighs 10.23 oz. and comes with a black Cordura sheath.
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. A perfect combination of size and utility. The ergonomic handle is designed for hours of intense camp work or combatives without blisters or bruising. The chunky scales are solid, balanced and hide a storage compartment.
