    Thanks for the input. Silly question but is there a favorite?

    I like any of the Rowen Hest black probably the best.

    Mine's the best of both worlds, an earlier Rowen/ESEE made Hest. Great all purpose knife.

    I have one of those and a Rat Hest also. Lost one and was lucky enough to find one on another forum to replace it.

    The black one in my earlier pic is actually #072 of the first run (ESEE/Rowen). The green one is also Rowen made though, and the quality is exactly the same.

    The newer green one is my user.

    Are the ones on DPX's web site different than the Rowen/ESEE knives? I am getting a real education.

    If you mean the HEST II Milspec, Assault, Woodsman, or the Safari versions then yes. They are made by Lionsteel in Italy.

    They also have the Rowen made versions, titled "HEST Original", in different color powder coats.

    I meant the HEST original. Is it the same as the Rowen/ESEE?

    I like my Hest a lot. Kydex sheath is great for back pocket. I use it until I get bored using it.

    I've been over the top insane for months to years, Bill, as some here can attest. :confused:

    But moving north toward a better life in a couple of weeks. :)

    Thanks for asking. Great to see you here. ;)

    Wow, can't believe I missed a Hest thread....
    I'm pretty sure I have a few more not in this pic, just too lazy to go look.
