Blount Announces 2006 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results,
Provides 2007 Financial Outlook

·                  Outdoor Products segment sales reach record level in 2006

·                  Debt reduced by $56.8 million in 2006 to $350.9 million

·                  Industrial and Power Equipment segment sales and contribution impacted by a cyclical downturn in North American timber-harvesting equipment market

PORTLAND, OR, February 28, 2007: Blount International, Inc. [NYSE: BLT] (“Blount” or the “Company”) today announced results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2006.

Results for the Quarter Ended December 31, 2006

Fourth quarter sales were $158.1 million compared to $176.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2005. Operating income was $23.3 million compared to $29.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2005. The sales and operating income decline from 2005’s fourth quarter reflects year-over-year growth in the Company’s largest business segment, Outdoor Products, offset by industry-driven declines in the Industrial and Power Equipment segment.

Fourth quarter net income from continuing operations was $9.2 million ($0.19 per diluted share) compared to $56.4 million ($1.17 per diluted share) in the fourth quarter of 2005.  The fourth quarter 2005 net income was favorably impacted by the reversal of most of the Company’s deferred income tax valuation allowance, which resulted in a significant income tax benefit being recorded. The estimated impact of key variances in results of continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2006 compared to the fourth quarter of 2005 in terms of sales, operating income and diluted earnings per share is illustrated below:
