HEST II Woodsman
The craftsmen at LionSTEEL in Maniago, Northern Italy, manufacture the DPx HESTª Woodsman fixed blade knife. This knife is the Italian-made answer to the original DPx HEST and features various enhancements to the original configuration, including Niolox steel, a revised pry bar angle and a slightly modified hollow handle. The blade of your knife has been either stone washed Woodsman or Titanium Carbo-Nitride (TiCN) PVD coated Assault. The DPx Gear Hostile Environment Survival Tool (HEST) II is a short run, high endversion of the DPX HEST Original. The HEST II is made with Niolox steel which delivers a harder, more granular cutting edge. The HEST II comes in a black G10 scaled, PVD coated tactical version for law enforcement and military or an "old school" naked stone washed blade and natural matching Brazilian Santos wood scales. The scales on the HEST II are thick providing more storage area and a meatier grip. We created a beautiful matching sheath in either cordura tactical or hand made leather.
