The Carabiner-Carry Knife That Never Needs a Sheath

San Diego, CA -(Ammoland.com)- Robert Young Pelton, founder of DPx Gear, Inc., innovates again with a new design that eliminates the sheath for a hard use fixed blade knife.

The new DPx HIT Cutter is the first knife in the new DPx HIT (Handle Inversion Tool) line of knives that all feature an integrated pivoting blade guard and handle. This patent pending concept is called DPx Centric.

Pelton tested the DPx HIT on his recent trip into the violent world of South Sudan, where he was the first to document the South Sudanese White Army in combat.

The 5.5 inch long, 0.19 inch thick martensitic steel knife has a wicked two inch edge yet weighs less than three ounces. The carabiner mount and one finger control is intended for emergency responders, climbers, rafters, divers and any other application where an easily accessible, exact control hard use cutting tool is necessary. The knife is made from CPM S35VN stainless American steel hardened to 61 Rockwell scale to maintain its cutting edge under abuse.

The locking blade guard means there is no need for a bulky or heavy sheath. It can be carried on a pack, belt loop or lanyard with confidence. A forward push of a finger against the thumb stud releases the guard which, with minimal assistance, snaps back smoothly to become the handle. When not in use, the guard snaps back and locks automatically due to the clever spring-action DPx Centric design.

The DPx HIT Cutter knife manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $187.50. For additional information and a video of the DPx Centric in action visit DPxGear/hit-cutter.
