Folding knives typically aren’t favored amongst the outdoorsy types, because although they’re safer and easier to carry, their blades leave more to be desired. Fixed blades, on the other hand, are widely used because of their typically longer length and reliability. But their exposed blade renders them impossible to be carried in your pocket — until now.
Introducing the DPx Gear HIT Cutter, a more pocketable solution than your typical fixed blade knife, thanks to the pivoting edge guard that protects your pocket (and legs) from being ripped (or impaled). To use the knife, you simply swing the guard backwards onto the grip, and as you’d expect, you flip it back when you’re done to lock back over the blade. What’s more, this blade has a clip on the tail end to allow you to clip it to your bag or belt loop. It’s available for about $180. [Purchase]
