ABOUT THE MAKER
DSK Tactical
Dan Sullivan, of DSK Tactical, was born and raised in Arizona. After 9/11, Dan joined the Marine Corps, a lifelong goal and desire. After graduation from boot camp, Dan went through the School of Infantry and became a 0311, rifleman. During his time in the Marine Corps he deployed to Iraq and many other countries. With his service complete he left the Marine Corps to pursue other desires directly related to his service. He began to learn the trade of Blacksmithing, as knives and weaponry have always captured and intrigued him. Knife making is not just a business for Dan, he treats it as a pursuit to honor those he has served with, and those who have given their lives in service. At times Dan has described this work as therapeutic. His long term goals with his craft are to equip knife enthusiasts with custom knives that are functional, tactical and distinctive, and as tough as the individuals who carry them.
Ferrum Forge
I really like edged tools. I’ve had a knife in my hand since I was four years old, thanks to my grandfather. But the day finally came when my taste in knives out-grew my wallet and I started asking questions, like why some knives were so darn expensive and why it costs an arm and leg to get a decent sword these days. And now I know why. What I found was an entire other world of custom blade smiths, some of whom made a living making knives. I was instantly impressed by the masters like Jay Fisher, Don Fogg, and the late Jim Schmidt. What began in my garage has grown, tremendously, since 2009. I managed to infect my brother Chris with the knifemaking bug and together we have grown as brothers and business partners. That growth has required evolution in every aspect of what we do at Ferrum Forge Knife Works. What used to be cut with a bandsaw is now water jet or laser cut, what was once milled on a manual mill is now CNC milled (even though we still do a lot of manual mill work), and all of that evolution has lead to us making better and better knives with every run we produce. Our tolerances are tighter, our assembly times are shorter, and we can make more knives at a more affordable price point with more value than we ever could have before. The evolution of our production methods has lead us to cutting edge manufacturing technologies like additive manufacturing via electron beam melting and kept us focused on using high end, high value materials. I never wanted Ferrum Forge to be hampered by any particular set method of knife production and the way we make knives will always evolve as we find better way to craft man's second oldest tool. It is often hard for people to classify our knives because we blend modern manufacturing method and hours of hand time in every knife, that's why we don't bother with labels any more, we just make good knives.
