I'm happy to announce a partnership between SDO and the good folks at DPx Gear on their line of Folder and Fixed Blade Knives. I've personally been using their products for about 5-years, and their HEST/F Folder has pretty much barely left my side during that time...it goes everywhere with me and after 5-years of heavy duty daily use has never let me down - this thing is rugged. But here's the best part(s) of the HEST/F in my opinion:
  • D2 steel blade by LionSTEEL in Italy (blade is polished then milspec phosphate coated).
  • Tumble finish 6Al4V Grade 5 titanium alloy frame and spring frame lock.
  • Built-in bottle opener on the blade (I'd be lying if I said this wasn't the most used feature on mine!).
  • 1/4" hex driver in the handle.
  • Wire strippers (3-sizes) integrated into the back of the blade.
  • Glass breaker on the butt of the frame.
  • The pocket clip sits nice and high at the top, so the HEST completely disappears from view when it's in your pocket (always drives me crazy when I see someones folder sticking half out of their pocket because the clip mounts to the side of the folder).
  • LIFETIME WARRANTY
Another huge plus - DPx Gear is cut from the same cloth with their love of Rovers, as the founder Robert Young Pelton (RYP) was actually one of the drivers for Team USA in the 1991 Camel Trophy event. This Rover influence has permeated their products, and a partnership of DPx Gear products being offered with SDO was only natural. Side note, but his daughters work for DPx Gear as well and grew up in & around Rovers their entire life (Series III, Defenders, RRC) and they still sport Rovers today - including an Alpine White NAS SW (which I believe is the unofficial DPx Gear vehicle, even bearing a custom DPx Gear license plate).

Anyhow, I've ordered in some inventory in limited amounts (just a few of each knife to get started), and in an effort to establish a relationship with this company I'm throwing some screaming deals out there for the folks here on DefenderSource for this first order only (after these are gone, prices are back to regular price-points).

Essentially, I'm listing everything at a 20% discount off MSRP...and THEN you'll get the additional 10% discount for DefenderSource (coupon code "D90") ON TOP OF THE ALREADY REDUCED PRICE.

The icing on the cake, is I can do free delivery to either MAR or URE as well (but only for the folks attending these events, i.e. no shipping but I will bring them with me). If you are attending either event, use the appropriate coupon code as follows:
  • MAR: use coupon code "D90-MAR" and receive the additional 10% discount & free delivery to MAR [order must be placed by 9/30 or before].
  • URE: use coupon code "D90-URE" and receive the additional 10% discount & free delivery to URE [order must be placed by 10/15 or before].
  • If you're not attending an event but still want to order, just use the standard coupon code "D90" to get your 10% discount (and shipping should only be ~$6 depending on location).
There's a few pics below, but here's a link to everything currently offered (and again there will be an additional 10% off the listed prices when you use the D90 code):

Jason,

Do you have the folding knife in silver? Your webpage only has in green.
I just started with a limited selection of their items to keep as in-house inventory. BUT I can special order anything they offer, as long as it's in-stock.

But just to clarify, are you talking about the Aculous, or the DPx HEAT/F Milspec, or a different one?

Bump for anyone else looking for MAR delivery on these.

This initial order is due in to me on Wednesday, and anyone that ordered already they will be shipping out to you that same day. And the rest of you that ordered for MAR/URE delivery I'll definitely have them with me to hand out this weekend...

The blades have arrived :)! And of course I used my HEST/F to open the package....

Anyone that ordered they will be shipping out today, and if you have a MAR delivery it'll be packed up and on its way tomorrow to be hand delivered...

I got the Hest Folder and it is a really nice knife. It comes nice and sharp.
Virgil:

Glad you liked it! That's the same one I've been carrying daily for over 5-years, and it's still as sharp as the day I got it (and it gets used just about daily as well). The more you use it, the more you'll dig it I guarantee.

Make sure you get familiar with all the features as well...the bottle opener, wire strippers, glass breaker, 1/4" nut driver, etc.
