People love fixed blades because there are fewer moving parts and they are less prone to failure. But sometimes a folding knife is just so much more convenient.

For those times you need a folder as strong and reliable as a fixed blade, there's the DPx Gear HEST/F 2.0 -- left handed version.

The original idea of the HEST/F was to create a folding version of the durable HEST (Hostile Environment Survival Tool) fixed blade knife. The HEST Folder now goes far beyond its original intent and is now an all-around tool you can bet your life on in any situation.

The 3.25-inch blade is made from German D2 tool steel and coated with black milspec to dampen the steel's reflective properties. A cutout in the spine offers a rapid deployment system.

Thanks to a patented RotoBlock frame lock mechanism, the blade stays engaged without fear of slippage or accidental failure.

The latest version is called the 2.0 because it made small but major changes to the geometry, strength, and weight of the knife.

The handle features a dual design that provides strength on one side and grip on the other. An olive drab G-10 scale -- made thicker in this second iteration -- helps keep the overall weight down. The 6A14v GR.5 stone washed U.S.-made titanium alloy frame adds even more reliability to the knife.

At the butt of the handle is an integrated glass breaker and a single position, tip-up deep carry pocket clip.

For a hard-use folder, it's tough to find anything better than this.

Buck Knives Fixed Omni Hunter 12 Pt Knife with Black Handle and Guthook Blade
"What can I say - It's a Buck! Excellent feel and of course very sharp. I have owned many Buck knives over the years (I'm 69) and I have never been disappointed."

Buck Knives Spitfire, Green Aluminum, Plain
"I find this knife to be a solid edc performer. I have been carrying it for about two eeeks now. I am a contractor and I am tough on blades. I like the pocket clip and how secure it is. Most picket clips fail for me after a while. This seems to be very strong and durable. The blade is easy to sharpen.If it had an assisted opener it would be a 5."
