All Buck Knives are warranted for the lifetime of the original purchaser against breakage or malfunction caused by defects in materials or workmanship. This applies to normal use for which the knife was intended, not abuse or misuse. Buck Knives will repair or replace any defective Buck knife with the same or comparable model.  If you have any questions about your knife or the warranty, please call our consumer hotline at (800) 215-2825.   

WHAT IS COVERED: Repair of your knife, including parts and related labor, or replacement with a new knife. To the extent allowed by law, the sole and exclusive remedy under this warranty is limited to repair or replacement. Note: repair is not always possible—some older knives can fall apart during repair. If repair is not practical and replacement involves a discontinued model that is no longer available, then the closest comparable model available will be used for replacement. Note: if it is important for you to receive your old knife back in the event of replacement, please include a note to that effect and include your phone number and/or e-mail address.  Damage caused by misuse, abuse or failure to perform normal knife care and maintenance; damage from self repair; machine sharpening; knife loss, including shipping to and from Buck factory; transportation charges to Buck. Abuse, misuse, dismantling or tampering with your knife, or sharpening your knife on a power-driven grinding wheel voids your warranty coverage.

RETURNING A KNIFE FOR WARRANTY REPAIRWrite a note describing the problem with your knife. On the note, be sure to include your name, address, phone number and e-mail address (if applicable).   For safety and protection of your knife, please clean it, then put it in the sheath, if you have one. If not, please clean and wrap your knife (cardboard works well) so that it is protected during shipping and that the point does not cut through the packaging (particularly for fixed blade knives). After we have worked on your knife, we will return it in your sheath (or in a cardboard sleeve if no sheath was sent).  Packaging your knife in a box is preferred, but a padded envelope may also work, provided your knife is not too heavy or too bulky. Please put some packing around the knife so it does not roll around inside your package. Please use tape rather than staples for sealing your package.  To protect you against the possibility of loss of your knife, we recommend insuring your parcel and sending it trackable by certified receipt (at your expense). Note that cost of shipping your knife to the Buck factory and knife loss are not covered by our warranty. When your knife has been repaired, we will return it postage paid to you.  Send your parcel to: Buck Knives, Customer Service, 660 S. Lochsa St, Post Falls, ID 83854.  (800) 326-2825 x184.  Buck Knives makes their best effort to repair and return your knife to you within four weeks of receipt.
