Liquidmetal® Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: LQMT), the world's leading developer of amorphous alloys, recently delivered its first production parts made in its Rancho Santa Margarita manufacturing facility, an innovative knife that exploits the benefits of Liquidmetal for the California based Miltner Adams Company.

The Hybrid Knife which debuted this past week at the 2015 BLADE Show in Atlanta, Georgia, combines the advantages of a fixed blade and a folder in one knife. The knife is the first of its kind in the world and is based on a Miltner Adams prototype. The Liquidmetal and Miltner Adams teams co-developed design refinements only possible with Liquidmetal.

Liquidmetal Technologies President and CEO Tom Steipp said, "The first commercial shipments from our newly established Manufacturing Center of Excellence is a hallmark achievement following the establishment of manufacturing, engineering, sales, and marketing co-located under one roof. The success of this project demonstrates the commercial stability of the Liquidmetal process technology and its partners, ENGEL and Materion."
