About Guardian Tactical

Guardian Tactical was founded in 2012 by nationally renown Senior Blade Design Engineer Andy Buerk and CNC Master Machinist Brian Mercer formerly with Microtech Knives who both had a vision to set a new standard in the development of specialized high quality tactical products built with innovation and purpose for self-defense, utility use and safety purposes.
At Guardian Tactical all of our products are proudly made in the USA and manufactured in our state of the art facility by the best skilled machinists and assembly technicians in the industry. We use our award winning critical tolerance testing verification and project completion processes in order to always ensure the highest standard in product quality and customer satisfaction.
Our quality of manufacturing and world craftsmanship combined with the latest advancements in CNC technology has set the standard for all other competitors to follow as we continue to strive for excellence in our industry. In today’s multifarious environment of manufacturing and business, not all companies are created equal and at Guardian Tactical we believe that integrity is just as important as the quality of the design, in correlation with the delivery of the final product.
A great example of our experience and strong focus on innovation is that Guardian Tactical exclusively delivers the design and manufacturing process of the MRX chain drive Knife sold and distributed by Ratworx, which retains the Winner of the People’s Choice Award from the 2014 BLADE Show.

“The quality of a product is based on the design and engineering behind it for those who only seek the best
