TAYLOR BRANDS LLC LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY
This product is warranted to the original consumer purchaser, for as long as he or she owns this product. Coverage ends if you transfer or sell the product to someone else or if the product is modified in any way. The warranty covers defects in materials, manufacture or assembly. If one of our products ever breaks or fails due to material or manufacturing defect we will repair or replace the product.
The warranty does not cover normal wear, damage caused by abuse, misuse, improper handling, loss, accident, alterations, neglect, disassembly or improper sharpening. Cosmetic damage which occurs over time and use, such as scratches on a products finish or coatings on a product rubbing or wearing off are normal and are not covered by the warranty. Our products rarely fail because of a defect and in most cases the failure or breakage is due to ?tool abuse?. ?Tool abuse?, is when the product is used for unsuitable non intended purposes. Examples would be using a knife for any other purpose than cutting (pounding, prying, using as a screwdriver, throwing the knife etc). Multi-purpose tools are not intended to replace full-sized tools and are for use only on light or moderately heavy-duty applications. Collapsible batons are not pry bars etc. Always use the proper tools for the proper intended purposes.
Locking systems such as liner locks, safeties, frame locks and lock back mechanisms are added features designed to help keep the blade in the open position when fully extended. These systems are not designed to take pressure or blows to the backside (dull) side of the blade and failure of these systems can happen when not used properly. When a cutting tool/knife is used properly the cutting pressure exerted on the knife blade will always be against the cutting edge of the blade pushing and keeping the knife blade open, when used properly it is impossible for the knife to close when cutting.
Misuse of your product can cause serious injury or even death. Misuse often will result in your product failing and breaking in which cases the Taylor Brands warranty will not apply. Failure to properly maintain your product may cause it?s mechanisms to not function properly and could also result in injury to you and/or damage to your product.
