Hest Folder 2.0 question

Postby Cruiser » Fri Feb 10, 2012 2:31 am

Does the HEST Folder 2.0 come with the rotoblock on it or has it been removed, I am on another forum and have two people saying they have a 2.0 and it doesn't have the RoboBlock on them, and another person with one that does have it, I have looked at your website and it says it is a feature on the knife and I just want to try to clear up the information

That's what you get for hanging out on "expert" knife forums :))

Every DPx HEST/F 1.0 and the new 2.0 use the patented Rotoblock. The purpose of the Rotoblock is to lock the framelock to create a fixed blade from a folder. No other knife has this except Rick Hinderer who licenses it from Lion Steel. A lot of people confuse this unique feature with "lock stabilizers" which simply prevent the lock bar from bending outward.

Which Hinderer has the rotoblock? I'm only aware of the stabilizer.

I stand corrected. I was talking to Rick and to Gianni and I assumed they would use the Rotoblock. Rick just uses a stabilizer version. So that makes DPx Gear and the SR1 the only one that uses the Rotoblock
