The DPx Gear Hostile Environment Field Tool (HEFT) is designed and built for hard work. Whether that means skinning a moose, building a shelter or carrying it on your next overseas adventure, the full-tang HEFT 4 is a tried-and-tested workhorse. The knife was designed by Robert Young Pelton and Tommaso Rumiciand and handmade by LionSTEEL in Northern Italy.

The HEFT 4 Woodsman features patented German Lohmann Niolox 1.4153.03 stainless, high-performance blade steel cryo-hardened to 61 HRC.

The blade is 0.190" thick and features three sizes of wire strippers that serve as jimping. There's a lanyard hole and lashing points, and an integrated striker and pry bar on the pommel.

The HEFT 4 is expertly balanced for hours of hard use without causing blisters, hot spots, or bruising. The handle is hollow and designed to store things like survival materials such as fire starter and water-purification tablets. The scales are secured with two hybrid slotted/Allen screws.

The Woodsman version features a stonewashed blade. The contoured handle scales are Brazilian Santos wood. The knife weighs 6.02 oz. and comes with a handmade Italian leather sheath.

I am a big fan of Lion Steel and since they manufacture these blades I thought I would check them out. Very disappointed bottle opener is gimmicky but wanted one on my EDC this one barely works better off using the spine of the knife. Bevel is horribly lopsided extremely uneven no QC done on this blade. Nice design from DPX but horrible execution. As for a woods knife for the size blade not the best decision on the grind can be used but more tactical then useful. Leather sheath is nice very usable for EDC, but in the end even though I want to like it to many issues to be called good save your money for a better knife.
