Purdy Corp., longtime maker of paint applicators and sundries, has expanded into the surface-prep tool category with lines of premium-grade and contractor-grade tools.

Purdy’s new premium-grade surface prep tools feature large, no-slip comfort grips for precise control; clear-coated, high-carbon steel blades for maximum durability; and hammerhead nail-set handles for quick repair work.

“Surface prep is tough work and we believe the rugged craftsmanship, professional-grade performance, lifetime guarantee, and Purdy brand name will spur trial and repeat purchases,” said Bruce Schneider, End User Marketing Manager and Training Coordinator.

The Purdy Premium Prep Tool line includes nine tools for scraping paint, spreading joint compound, applying putty, patching holes and performing similar surface readiness tasks:

• 6” flex-blade joint knife
• 4” flex-blade joint knife
• 3” stiff-blade angled scraper
• 3” flex-blade angled scraper
• 2” flex-blade putty knife
• 1-1/2” stiff-blade putty knife
• 1-1/2” flex-blade putty knife
• 6-in-1 painter’s tool
• 6-in-1 painter’s tool (with stainless-steel blade; all other tools feature high-carbon steel)

The eight tools comprising the Purdy Contractor Prep Tool line feature clear-coated, high-carbon steel blades and comfortable, plastic handles with ribbed rubberized thumb grips. The line features:

• 6” flex-blade joint knife
• 4” flex-blade joint knife
• 3” stiff-angled scraper
• 1-1/2” stiff-blade putty knife
• 1-1/2” flex-blade putty knife
