This is the DPx HEST folder. Although my Fallkniven PXL folder is more beautiful with a blade of 3G Super Powder Steel, still this somewhat comparatively drab looking knife finds its way into my pocket as an EDC most often. It is a sturdy knife with a strong lock-up which holds the blade well-centered and firm. There was a great deal of trouble with this model's first and 2nd issue but my copy was a good one. Still if something does go wrong I can send it back anytime, no questions asked and they will send me a brand new one of the revamped model.


The liner is made of Titanium and the blade from D2 tool steel. I love this little folder and that D2 holds an edge like a razor after being worked on my WEPS. Good retention too.
What is your favorite folder?

Cheers
Leo

Hi Hammer! Take your time and don't sweat it! Put up pictures when you can. Experiment away! Make mistakes and try again until you get it. It's OK!
I got your PM...good on you! Did you get my PM?

Later my friend

My favorite folder would be a toss up between my Spyderco Military and Paramilitary both in S90V. If I have to pick one - it's the Military.

Dang, always have to ask the tough ones, don't you Leo? :lol:

Depends on my mood at the time, but it'd be a toss-up between a Spyderco Manix-2 in M4, a Spyderco Caly-3 in ZDP-189 laminate, or a CRK Large Sebenza in S30V. Although the new Falkniven TK3 I snagged my dad for his birthday is pretty darn nice too, I wouldn't mind trying one of those for a while either.

All of mine are currently carrying a polished convex edge from the Kalamazoo belt, but once I get the fine paddles and a couple Choseras in for the WEPS, I might have to re-profile one of them as a test.

Those are mighty fine folders you have chosen as your favourites Dan. You have picked well.
I am normally a collector of fixed blade knives, but recently I have been captured by folders thanks to my DpX and Fallniven PXL folders. I have put up a shot of my DpX so here is one of my PXL...it is on the far right with the ivory Micarta scales. Both are extra special tools...there is not much that fixed blades can do that would stump these 2 bad boys.


Let's hope others will come forward and post their favourites.favorites in American!! :lol:

I too am a big fan of my DPX HEST. I have both gen I and gen II. Can't seem to leave my pocket. Still love my Strider SNG and CRK Sebenza 21 too. Those are my top three.
