DS&S Tactical is the best place to buy the best knives on planet Earth!
We know - we've spoken to Tibetan monks about this. Pay no attention to our payroll records which list "Tibetan Monks". That's a typo. Honest.
Check our limited time discounts - might save money if you check there first!
And make sure that you familiarize yourself with our payment method. Or we send the Mime Team to educate you.

Shipping is usually a flat $20, unless it is not. Figuring out shipping is like figuring out the Tax Code - except, we don't have to ride the shipping crazy train. So $20 it is, baby - unless you live on the moon, or Hawaii, or somewhere in Germany, which all seem to be about the same distance from us.
For those interested, our knives feature a zero-grind style at between 7.5 and 11 degrees. We do each of these completely by-hand and by-eyeball. There are no jigs at work here. Our grinder
features a ten-inch wheel with a variable speed controller - and we run it at high pressures with a 70 duro contact wheel and 2 inch x 72-inch blaze ceramic belts.
We do not, however, weigh our knives. If you are worried about how much they weigh, you must be preparing to take them into space. Hope you have a good trip.
Our steels have been LaTrobe Dura Tech 20CV, ELMAX, M390, CTS-204P, Z-FINIT Nitrogen Steel, CPM-20CV and a couple in N690 and Cowry X. We are always experimenting - and always looking for new materials and treatments.
Our coatings are also specialized stuff: We use Black-T and Black Diamond DLC. Our blades are sent out to those two companies to accomplish that work, depending on the requirements of the project.
We do all our own firing and cryo work. Everything by-hand and by-heart.
FOR KNIFE BUILDS...
(yep. We are that busy)
Troops come first.
