The DPx HEFT 4 NSW Edition for Blackwater is a short-run, commemorative knife designed and manufactured for members of the Naval Special Warfare community. Limited to 500 units in its first production, this knife was produced exclusively for the personnel who advised its final form.
This knife is our way of catering to our customers' specific needs. In 2012, we asked a handful of NSW personnel what they wanted in a knife. We showed them big knives, short knives, fixed-blade knives and folders. Contrary to what some may think, the SEALs didn't want a six-inch blade.
They wanted a smaller, all-black, fixed-blade sterile knife that was concealable. They wanted a highly corrosion-resistant blade with two inches of serrations, and they wanted a way to personalize the knife, a way to let everyone else know they were SpecWar.
