What problems are those? The internet has an interesting knack of amplifying a tiny group of folks and then completely ignoring the contentment of thousands. DPx products come with a lifetime, no questions asked warranty so technically all knives are guaranteed to be perfect, as defined by the customer, not us. Its called satisfaction guaranteed.

I also know every customer by name and the history of their knife. We take the satisfaction of our customers seriously.


What number are you considering buying?

That's why I won't spend more than 100 on a knife.

Chimbo and Hitoru hit me up on my regular email for a deal on some folders. I don't like seeing flaggers not carrying weapons.

Hey RYP how do i re-center the blade on my 1st edition it has gotten a little outta whack, i dont think i can deal with sending it in to be serviced, cant be without it for that long. You guys should do a loaner program like the car dealerships lol.

If you buy a Limited Edition you get a loaner. If you just want your 1.0 looked at, send it in and I will make sure it gets turned around under warranty ASAP. Less than a week.

i am yet another escapee from BF; it seems if you sing ANY praises about the HEST, you kinda get ignored...just had enough of their over-moderating moderators...

so i finally got my ass in gear to send in my 1.0 for warranty service. i had the lock slippage issue that never corrected itself like i thought it would; pretty much used it with the rotolock on all the time. but that got annoying so i set it aside for my other pariah/outlaw knife brand, a Strider SmF. but most of the time i don't need or want to carry the Big Fella; i love the design, utility, smaller size but thick blade of the HEST folder, so i'm getting it taken care of. i also use the HEST (RAT made) fixed blade; the blade shape is what got me hooked on the folder to begin with...

refreshing to be in a forum with those who USE their blades rather then buy to feed a knife/sharpening fetish and play "look at me, look at what i got" LOL...

Anyone know where I can get my own business cards that pop into a shiv? Or another tool for that matter? I've found www.metalcards.com, but they're a little
Higher than I want to pay

I'd like to know where to get the metal cards like the DPx one as well, if it's ok to share.

BTW, I know I'm late but I must commend DPx for their excellent service. I sent my friend's HEST Folder v1 which had all the issues mentioned - slipping lock, edge near the ricasso too close to the spine of the handle (I got cut), loose clip tension...and DPx promptly sent me back a new v2, with no charge :) The clip is still a little under tensioned, but it will have to do as I dont want to pay more shipping :)

I do like my HEST v2 folder (and so does my friend) - highly recommended.

probably also higher than what you want to pay but the Snody Crisis Card is just friggen evil. Worth a look.

just saw a pic of the limited edition all black HEST 2.0...with serrations!...i love serrations on a working knife...as much as i like i can't justify picking one up (especially at the price), it would be redundant to the production 2.0 i am actively using...i do like using the HEST over the SnG...

i hope there is a production serrated version put out soon...
