Puris Signs SB Specialty Metals as Exclusive Distributor of SM-100™

SB Specialty Metals Offering to Focus Primarily on Knife Community

HAZELTON, W.Va. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 2, 2015Puris, LLC, announced that it recently signed an agreement making SB Specialty Metals the exclusive distributor of its proprietary SM-100 alloy into the knife community.

SM-100 is corrosion-proof, nonmagnetic, wear-resistant and able to achieve hardness levels of 62RC. NASA deemed SM-100 to be immune to corrosion in salt water. The unique combination of corrosion- and wear-resistance is unsurpassed by any other structural metal. SB will offer standard knife blanks as well as full sheets through its e-commerce site. Inventories will be available beginning in March 2015. This material has been in high demand, especially for custom knife makers.

“SB brings intimate knowledge of the knife community and a proven track record of managing unique boutique materials. They understand this community and this material better than anyone,” Eric Bono, vice president of Sales for Puris explained. “SM-100 is very complex to process, and makers are developing their own processing and heat treatments to optimize the material's performance and aesthetics. Puris believes SB is in the best position to aggregate and leverage this knowledge for the betterment of the entire community.

“Just as important to Puris,” Bono added, “SB Specialty Metals has a long-standing reputation for professionalism and integrity. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome them onboard as our exclusive distributor for this specialized market.”
