Buck Knives & Buck Knife Co. Warranty
« on: November 21, 2011, 06:35:54 PM »
I'm a knife collector.  Some time ago my wife bought me two knives at an estate sale.  One was a no-name and one was a Buck  Knife. She paid a couple of bucks for the two of them.  The Buck had been severely mistreated, and two of the three blades had tips broken off.  I was going to reshape them and sharpen them, and had, in fact, started to do so.  Then I thought that it might be better to send it back to the factory to have it done professionally. I called Buck Knife and the customer service lady suggested that I send it to them for a look see. 

Bottom line, they sent me a brand new knife, same model, and for no cost.  They said that it was done under their warranty.  To me that's amazing in this day and time.    I am  ;D.

My collecting focuses on Case brand knives (Case Collectors Club Life Member), but you can be assured  that I won't forget what this firm has done for me.

Norm

As a follow up to the above,  thought I'd make another post about Buck Knives.

I had another Buck Knife that I had found in the woods a number of years ago.  This one wasn't in bad condition, however, one blade had been pretty badly treated, and was badly worn. Well, I thought I'd try out the Buck Knife 'Forever Warranty' again.  I sent it in with a letter of explanation, and 5 weeks to the day after shipment to Buck, I received the same knife back, with the blade replaced, the remainder of the blades had been sharpened, and the whole knife cleaned and buffed.  It looks like a new knife.

How can you beat that for a warranty?  You'll never get that type of treatment with an off-shore manufacturer.  If you have a Buck Knife that needs to be refurbished, send it in.  They'll either restore it, or replace it.  Kudos for Buck Knife Company!  You can Google the address for their website.

I urge you to support this manufacturer when you can.  By the way, I've purchased a number of knives manufactured by Buck.

Any thoughts?

Shotgun, If I am not mistaken buck has been around since the early 1900,s and I think I now know why. Its a shame that we live in a throwaway society now! every one is concerned about price. My call on a tool is buy the best and have it for life. I love American companies that still think this way. and I will always support them by purchasing there products. Tim

I have a monogrammed rosewood handled buck folding knife as well.  In total, I have four buck knives.  I have one that has skinned a whack of deer.  Great company.

I may be broke from time to time, but if I got my pants on I always have two Bucks on me.  I have a Bucklite 426 on my belt that I've been carrying for over 20 years and it is still like brand new.  I use it pretty hard too.  A little rosewood 503 resides in my right front pocket. :)

I won't buy a pocket or hunting knife that isn't made in the U.S.  I've carried a Case peanut in my pocket since the mid 1970s and my hunting and fishing knives are both Buck and Schrade.  I was heartbroken when I found that Schrade had been bought by a company that now makes all their knives in China.  I then DanG near hit the floor when I picked up a Buck knife and it was made in China.  Now, when you buy a Buck knife you have to get the one that has an American Flag on the packaging or else your're getting a Chinese made knife.  I don't trust the temper of Chinese steel no matter whose name is on it.  I did just buy 2 of those Buck Lockbacks with brass bolsters and rosewood handles and that model is still made in the U.S.A.

I have a half dozen or so Bucks, some Schrades, a couple of Queen (anybody remember them), Gerbers before they were made in China and a little SOG that I carry for nothing else but to cut out splinters and such.  Sharpest little dude, and a good point, I own.

My mom carried a Queen knife from the 1940s until she passed away in 2003.  Queen makes a fine knife and I believe they are still in existence and I think they are also U.S. made (Worth reading http://www.queencutlery.com/ )

I'm really impressed that Buck replaced and repaired those knives for free.  That is a fine company that knows how to treat its customers.

By looking at the site, I can guess their knives are way out of my price range now.  I carried two of the same type for 30 years or so, single blades that got a might thin and hard to sharpen.

I carry a buck sheath knife during hunting season and it has skinned and gutted more deer and hogs than I can remember. For personal carry it's a SOG knife my son gave me for fathers day many years ago.

I'll have to dig out my old buck folding knife. I broke the tip off about the 2nd time I used it.

I lost a Schrade folding hunting knife one time so I went to the sporting goods store for a new one. They told me lifetime warranty against loss so I sent a letter off to the people at Schrade.. They sent me a new one, no charge!
