HYDE® Tools: The Pro’s Pro for Paint, Drywall, & Wall Repair
When modern drywall was introduced in 1936, it was HYDE® the industry called on to design what became the drywall joint knife that we all still use today. For decades before and after that call, it was HYDE® that supplied the tools of choice for professional painters, drywall pros, wallpaper hangers, and other tradesmen.
Founded as a cutlery manufacturer by Isaac P. Hyde in 1875, Hyde Manufacturing Company first used its superior blade-making skills to make rugged knives and blades for pros working in the tire, textile, and other industries. Over time, HYDE® was called on to adapt its high-quality tools to new industries and applications – from drywall and masonry to wallpaper, surface preparation, and painting. Today, HYDE® is the brand of choice for painters, drywall pros, and remodelers.
