KME Sharpeners LLC

KME Sharpeners LLC

KME Sharpeners manufactures and distributes exclusively American-made sharpening tools to customers worldwide through an international dealer network, and through direct internet sales. Our focus is on manufacturing the highest quality products possible at reasonable prices with strong emphasis on educating and assisting its customers through a highly qualified and extensive customer service program, both pre- and post-sale.  

 We started the company in response to the general public’s need for simple effective sharpening tools that enable users with little or no prior sharpening skills or experience to achieve truly professional results.  

 KME Sharpeners is a small company with seven employees based in Branchville, New Jersey. We have been a customer of SB One Bank since 2006.  SB One supported KME when we needed a loan to purchase a larger operating site, so when the federal Paycheck Protection Program was introduced earlier this year, we got our loan application to them quickly. Unfortunately, we learned that other companies had acted more quickly, and at the time, SB One Bank had reached its loan capacity on day one of the program!  

Not to fear, however, as we were advised by Darryl Harris and Colleen Keever, our SB One Bank relationship managers, to re-apply via an SB One Bank hyperlink to Colleen and Darryl continued to follow-up and provide updates throughout the loan review process, and we were more than pleased when our Paycheck Protection Program loan was approved and funded on May 6th.  We believe that SB One Bank was very resourceful in partnering with to expand its loan capacity, which allowed our loan application to be reviewed and ultimately funded.  

 Thank you, SB One Bank!
