About Us

Tactix Armory was founded by custom bladesmith Walter Sorrells.  After forging high performance Japanese style blades for over a decade, Walter turned to making semi-production tactical and field knives.

"My philosophy has remained the same over the years," he says.  "First and foremost, a blade has a job to do.  It's a tool.  Every aspect of a knife's design and construction flows from that simple fact."

Walter came to bladesmithing out of a longstanding interest in Japanese martial arts.  He holds a 3rd degree black belt in a Japanese karate style and has trained in several Japanese sword arts including Shinkendo and an iaido style as well as studying aikido and Brazilian jiujitsu.  Walter is also a competitive pistol shooter, holding Master rank in International Defensive Pistol Association shooting.
