Featured DPx Gear User: Officer Schaufler from Scranton, PA

FEATURED DPX GEAR USER: OFFICER DAN SCHAUFLER- SCRANTON, PA.

Patrolling the streets of North East Pennsylvania requires elite skill, knowledge and tools up for the challenge.

Officer Daniel Schaufler carries a DPx HEST/F knife on the job because he can depend on it in the field.  "I am a proponent of carrying a knife you can depend your life on. Yours are one of them," Dan says of DPx Gear knives.

In July of 2015, the dangers of his job hit very close to home when Schaufler's comrade, John Wilding, was injured on duty and later died as a result.  He left behind a young wife and children.

In order to raise money for John's family, a fundraiser called Wilding's Watch was created and a DPx HEAT/F Shred was auctioned off. 100% off the proceeds of the knife were donated by Schaufler to support Wilding's family.

There was a special time in Iraq after the invasion and before the insurgency really set in. A strange place of Hescos, blast walls, and drinking Belgian Coronas on the roof while watching fire fights and car bombs. It was Baghdad at its worst - and best.
