The Smith & Wesson story is an interesting one for sure. It started when Horace Smith and Daniel B. Wesson's first foray in 1852 saw the manufacture of a lever-action pistol known as the Volcanic pistol for their Volcanic Repeating Arms Company. Four years later, after financial difficulties led the company to come under different ownership, the pair left to begin anew and started work immediately on a newly designed revolver known as the Smith & Wesson Model 1. The rest is history. Now, over 150 years later, Smith & Wesson is still going strong and shows no signs of slowing down. With that kind of experience, it is not surprising that the company is now at the forefront of the arms industry – responsible for providing high performance firearms to the military, law enforcement and civilian markets. But, as noted, the company also produces a line of military and law enforcement accessories that include handcuffs like the Smith & Wesson Model 100 Melonite handcuffs.
Manufactured from high-quality carbon steel, each pair of Smith & Wesson Model 100 Melonite handcuffs boasts heat treated internal lockworks, smooth ratchets for quick cuffing and double locks to prevent escape. This particular model also includes a matte black Melonite finish, which provides for resistance to scratches, rust and corrosion. The patented double-locking system is activated with the finger and removes the need for extra tools. The double-locking system employs a lever lock, that when engaged, utilizes a lock spring to prevent the ratchet from further movement after having been appropriately tightened.
You may also be pleased to hear that Smith & Wesson Model 100 Melonite handcuffs meet National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Standard 0307.01 for double-locking metallic handcuffs. This standard establishes requirements and methods of tests for metallic handcuffs that were designed specifically for restraining people who have been apprehended by law enforcement professionals. By meeting this standard, these handcuffs prove effective and reliable.
Finally, the Smith & Wesson Model 100 Melonite handcuffs are covered by Smith & Wesson's lifetime warranty, which protects against manufacturer's defects. For more information on the warranty, please contact Smith & Wesson.
The Smith & Wesson Model 100 Melonite handcuffs are now available for $31.95.

i think these are the best of the best!
They came in the S&W box with some directions on all of the features, were well wrapped, and are clearly very tough. Thanks KeepShooting,com.
great quality cuffs, just like the ones the department uses.
