    Aren't they pictures of a HEFT - 6? As opposed to the HEST-6.

    I'm not sure which pictures you are referring to, but here is the link to the DPx HEST 6.

    Now I am confused. The HEST-6 looks just like the HEFT-6. I was hoping it, the HEST-6, would just be a larger version, like the HEST-4 is just a bigger version of the Original HEST.

    I agree with you was hoping it would have the same look as the Hest Original

    Looks pretty. Not my type of knife though. Hate serrations and finger grooves. However the Chris Reeves Green Beret proved me wrong last time. I'd have to try this one out to make a valid opinion.

    I'm not sure why people think this one has serrations, it doesn't.

    No, I just meant it as two general things I don't like on knives.

    My bad, I posted some pics on the first page and I was hoping I hadn't confused anyone.

    The blackwater grizzly is almost, but not exactly, the same knife design as the HEST-6. The grizzly is the less expensive niolox (?) steel and the HEST is sleipner (?) steel.My grizzly does not quite snap in right to the plastic sheath for my hest-6. Maybe one steel is dutch and the other german? Niolox appears to be stainless, I think Sleipner isn't stainless but it's supposed to be pretty tough. There is some company pimping a sleipner knife around the internet on blade forums etc and they do all the usual pounding and bashing with it

    wow...DPx HEST porn. The HEST 6 was designed for NSW SERE school out here. We also licensed it to contractors as the Blackwater Grizzly. You can still get that knife on the secondary market. They sold out pretty quickly. The DPx HEST 6 is a Niolox steel (D2 with Niobium) to make it slightly more stain resistant and flexible under bashing. I liked the low profile matte PVD coated version but most folks like to see the quality of the steel. Its my favorite all around camp knife that can also cut a steak or pound through a log. We had a few that we sold at Blade. http://www.dpxgear.com/hest-6-blade-2013.html
