Knife Warranties - Keep Your Collectible Knives Forever

Aug 5, 2008
One of the most important things to a knife collector is the manufacturer knife warranty. If you are just getting started in collecting knives, I would suggest that you familiarize yourself with the warranty and follow a few additional tips to keep your warranty valid.

There are a slew of warranties out there. Some of them are quite specific and some of them are easy to work with. So, if you don't have a law and English degree, I have provided a few tips below that should keep you safe when requesting a warranty repair or return.

* Any obvious mistreatment or abuse will void the warranty. That is just good sense. If you beat it up on purpose, then it is doubtful that a company will fix it.

* Noticeable failure to maintain and keep your knives dirt free will invalidate the warranty, and most likely insult the knives warranty repairman. You should be ashamed of yourself for toting around a filthy, crusty knife.

* This is a biggie for you folks out there that like to tweak and attempt to repair things yourselves. Just leave your broken knife alone and mail it in to the manufacturer. They will not fix it if they can tell that you tried to repair it yourself, and trust me, they will know.

* This one is not very fair, but neither is life if any of you have ever been anywhere on this big planet. If your knife disappears in the mail, whether it is simply lost or your mail man procures it, that is on you. Sorry.

* Ok, this is just downright good sense and should be a massive no-no for anyone that has ever carried a pocket knife. Do not sharpen your knife on a grinder and especially on that little grinder that can be found on the back of those old can openers. That is not a very bright idea.

These tips ought to keep you safe when it comes to utilizing the majority of knife warranties. However, you may want to read over the warranty from the particular company where you purchased your knife before shooting it off in the mail.

Most knife companies have websites and on those websites can be found warranty information the majority of the time. If something is unclear, call them or email them. That is your best bet. These things should keep you and your knife in top shape.
