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.
