DPX Gear HEST 1.0 3.67 inches .197 inches D2 Tool Steel 58-59 21 degrees per side ceramics and strops 5 and 3.5 diamond paste Top B-1 Survival folder/EDC
 
Authors Comments: This has been a controversial knife. The model 1 in some cases had weaknesses but luckily for me my cop was fine. A very sturdy knife with a D-2 tool steel blade that sharpens up incredibly and retains the edge well. It is one of my EDC knives.

Browning Kodiak FDT 3 Blade 3.25" .125" AUS-8 56-57 Skinner=20 Hide Blade=17 Skinner=3.5um Hide Blade=.25um Top A.5 Hunting, Field Dressing
 
Authors Comments:I've used this knife for over a decade to field dress hundreds of elk and have tinkered with a myriad of angles and finish levels. I finally settled on 20 degrees for the skinner with a moderately toothy finish of 3.5um and for a final bevel of 17 degrees for the hide blade with a polished finish of .25um. I relieved the shoulders on the hide blade down to 13 degrees and the added the micro-bevel. With continued stropping at 15 degrees, the edge is now nicely convex.
