The DPx HEST/F 2.0 is designed to be the little brother of the HEST Original fixed knife. It is a very solid pocket knife with a frame of American 6Al4V-titanium and G10 and a blade of German Niolox-steel. It is a truly multi-cultural effort since they are produced by Lionsteel in Italy.
The butt of the knife has a glass breaker and the back of the blade is a bottle opener. If you want to replace the glass breaker you can because they have included a smooth screw.
The jimping (the grip part) on the back of the blade can also work as a wire stripper. The lanyard hole has a hex bit driver, so you can easily screw bits with this knife. In the open position the LionSteel RotoBlock-system fully blocks the blade to give it the sturdiness of a fixed blade.
Conveniently, the knife comes in a lefty and righty version.
