Turley knives are covered by warranty against craftsmanship defects as long as I am making knives. That warranty covers the knife itself regardless of who owns it or if they bought it new.
If for any reason your Turley knife is unserviceable due to a making defect, just return it to me and I will fix it or replace it free of charge. I want you to be 100% satisfied.
Warranty exemptions: Any use other than normal use. That is to say, prying with your knife will void the warranty. A knife is a tool for cutting, a pry bar is a tool for prying and each has it's own warranty exemptions.
Some of my knives (camp knives/bushcraft knives ) are designed to batton with using a piece of wood. When ordering, be sure to tell me what kind of grind you would like and what tasks you plan to perform so I can build you the best knife for your purposes. And whatever you do, don't use a hammer to baton with, that will void the warranty.
A quick word about un-stabilized natural handle materials:
Wood, bone , antler, etc. are sensitive to environment changes such as dry or wet conditions. These conditions can cause natural materials to do some unusual things, like shrink or crack. It's not the norm but it does happen. If you receive your knife and the wood has cracks or shrinkage just return it to me for repair at no charge. If I can't fix it, I'll replace it at no charge.
If , however, a month or two down the road the material shrinks or cracks it will not be covered under warranty. I will fix it but for a fee. Natural material being what it is makes it impossible for me to afford to warranty it for the life of the knife. To help insure no funky things happen to the handle I suggest a coat or two of Johnson's paste wax every three months or so. More often if you live in an extreme environment.
If the possibility of cracking and shrinking (however slight) bothers you then I suggest stabilized woods or Micarta as an alternative. These man made/enhanced materials are specifically designed not to move. They are designed never to shrink or crack.
