Quick Overview

The craftsmen at Lion STEEL in Maniago, Northern Italy, manufacture the DPx H•E•S•T™ II Woodsman fixed blade knife. This knife is the Italian-made answer to the original DPx H•E•S•T and features various enhancements to the original configuration, including Swedish Niolox tool steel, a revised pry bar angle and a slightly modified hollow handle. Niolox steel is a chromium-molybdenum-vanadium alloyed tool steel that boasts extreme wear resistance, resistance to chipping, edge retention, hardness (60 HRC) and excellent “toothiness” in fine cutting. Blade is Swedish Niolox tool steel with 60 Rockwell hardness. Stone-washed (Woodsman) finish. Hollow Brazilian Santos hardwood (Woodsman) handle scales. Handmade Italian leather sheath (Woodsman) Unique wire stripper, jimping and hard lashing points. Thumb grip/bottle opener. 304 stainless steel hybrid slotted/Allen screws. 1/4" Hex driver. Swedish Niolox tool steel is a high alloyed tool steel ideal for replacing AISI D2 where chipping is a problem and/or replacing AISI A2 in applications requiring higher wear resistance. Swedish Niolox tool steel is also a very good substrate steel for all types of surface treatments. This combination means that Swedish Niolox tool steel is an extremely versatile conventional tool steel for medium to long-run cold work tooling.
