RYP - Robert Young Pelton
Robert Young Pelton is an author, journalist and documentary filmmaker. An iconoclast known for his entry into most of the world's conflicts over the last fifteen years, Pelton is known as an adventurer and a witness to conflict. His reputation is built on his interest and ability to enter forbidden, deadly and violent places and emerge with a stunning story. Pelton founded DPx Gear, Inc. in 2011 to create gear based on his needs for equipment in hostile and deadly environments.
Robert Young Pelton and Gianni Pauletta were returning from the IWA trade show in Nuremberg, Germany and Pelton asked Gianni why no one has created the world’s simplest and most durable gentleman’s knife. Pelton wanted to create the lightest and most elegant knife ever made. Pelton began sketching his concept while driving through the mountains. When they arrived back in Maniago, Italy, LionSteel crew began overcoming the formidable barriers to creating a thin tough folder from a single block of aviation grade titanium alloy. LionSTEEL Ti Spine was born from this pure demand for perfection.
