They are individually numbered and engraved with the special DPx Gear 10th anniversary "Decade" logo.
Designed by adventurer Robert Young Pelton, the HEST 6 splits the difference between a combative tool and a hard use knife. It was designed specifically for SERE (Survival Evasion Resistance Escape) training and is currently used by San Diego NSW SERE instructors in their training outside of Warner Springs, CA.
Micarta is a composite of linen and paper and will not check or lose its grip qualities. Over time, it develops a beautiful patina and withstands harsh elements.
