Buck Knives Forever Warranty
As my father Chuck Buck would say, if this is your first Buck knife, "Welcome aboard." You are now part of a very large family. We think of each one of our users as a member of the Buck Knives family, and we take care of our own.
Now that you are family, you might want to know a little more about us. Dad said it best when he said, "The fantastic growth of Buck Knives, Inc. was no accident. From the beginning, we determined to make God the Senior Partner. In a crisis, the problem was turned over to Him, and He hasn't failed to help us with the answer. Each knife must reflect the integrity of management. If some¬times we fail on our end, because we are human, we find it imperative to do our utmost to make it right. If any of you are troubled or perplexed and looking for answers, may we invite you to look to Him, for God loves you."
We have stood by these values since 1902 and honor our products with this Forever Warranty. Please don't hesitate to contact us regarding your knife.
CJ Buck President, CEO, Chairman of Buck Knives
If your knife has sentimental value, please make a note of it when you send the knife to us so that we can determine whether to repair or replace.
The Buck Forever Warranty
We warranty each and every Buck knife to be free of defects in material and workmanship for the life of the knife, and we will repair or replace with a new Buck knife, at our option, any Buck knife that is defective. Buck Knives does not warrant its products against normal wear, misuse, or product modifications. Buck Knives are not intended to be used as hammers, chisels, pry bars, or screwdrivers.
If your knife was damaged due to misuse, our repair department can analyze the damage and repair it for a reasonable fee. If the knife is unable to be repaired, we will extend a one- time courtesy offer, allowing you the option to purchase a new knife for 50% off of our MSRP price listed on the website, excluding any custom knives or web specials.
