Robert Young Pelton is not a man who shies away from anything. The author, filmmaker, and journalist has immersed himself in over three-dozen wars and trekked through 125 countries. And what he learned from his 30+ years in harsh environments is that he was left wanting for survival tools that could weather the brutal circumstances. So he started DPx Gear (Dangerous Places Extreme). Driven by their own knowledge and experiences and those of their customers - often seasoned explorers themselves - DPx Gear produces some of the most hardened and impressive knives on the planet.
