Desert Diamond Industries Is Moving!

Desert Diamond Industries is moving to a new address in Las Vegas, NV! Our new facilities will include a larger corporate headquarters, a state-of-the-art sales office, and a larger warehouse, which we’ll use to shoot how-to and other videos for our YouTube page!

Stay tuned here for photos and further updates!

"I used a blade last week that blew us away." - Newton Township, OH Fire Department

We’re back from the ACE14 conference in Boston, MA, and we come bearing more testimonials about the Fire Rescue Safety Blade. This one’s from Captain Josh Bryan, Training Coordinator for the Newton Township, OH Fire Department, and it includes photos of the Fire Rescue Safety Blade in action. Here’s what he has to say:

Chief, I used a blade last week that blew us away. We had one sent as a demo and tested it during our recent level I & II classes. Every instructor saw first hand (sic) and then tried it ourselves. We all agreed that it was stronger than anything we’ve seen or used prior on our USAR training’s (sic) we’ve taken… We cut metal, re-bar, locks, Steel doors, then cut 6-inch concrete without a problem, then as a final test cut 1/4(-inch) steel on a building corner pillar, the concrete behind it and the re-bar inside the concrete. It cut like butter!

The price is far cheaper and is lifetime guaranteed! I’d love to get two of these for Newton.

One Last Look at the American Water Works Association’s ACE14 Conference

The exposition hall at the American Water Works Association‘s ACE14 conference closed today. We’d hoped to get you photos of the last day of the conference, but unfortunately our photographer (and General Manager) Troy Fullerton was too busy making deals and breaking down our booth to take any photos.

Instead, we’d like to take one last look at the photos Troy has already taken at the conference, where we made so many contacts and friends.

Our conference team had a little too much fun setting up our booth, so setup took longer than we expected. Here’s our president Nicholas Mione messing around with a Husqvarna K970 ring saw.
