Guarantee: You can validate the guarantee only by presenting the letter of warranty.
Besides the statutory guarantee we provide lifetime guarantee against breaks if the defect occurs in normal use within the recommended area of application. Dilatation that may occur during the normal use of products which are manufactured using natural substances is a natural phenomenon and thus is not covered by the guarantee, if the dilatation does not affect significantly the use of the product. There is no such manufacturing procedure that makes a hardenable knife steel absolutely corrosion free in all cirumstances; however, regardless of some extreme cases, we may differentiate between stainless, corrosion resistant and highly corrosive steels. Knives made of the two latter materials may develop stains and rust spots on their blade, which is a completely normal consequence of everyday use. If you have any other observations, please note that handmade, craft products, which are manufactured using traditional technology, always bear the marks of the maker and the production process, therefore it is impossible to create exact reproductions of the items you find on my website.
Recommended area of application and the description of normal use:
-Hunting knives: Designed to perform tasks related to hunting such as field dressing, gutting, skinning the prey and similar activities.
-Kitchen knives: Designed to perform tasks related to food preparation such as chopping, cutting and slicing.

How to care for your knife:
-Wipe your knife dry immediately after use if possible. If your knife needs a thorough cleaning, use some slightly wet material first and then wipe the knife dry.
-If the handle is made of organic material (wood, bone, antler, etc…), depending on the frequency and degree of use (but not later than every 6-12 months) you should treat it with an organic substance such as linseed oil, tung oil or beeswax.
-If you have a leather sheath, remember that the flexibility and plasticity of leather may change over time. It is recommended to treat it with some leather care agent every 6-12 months. Do not keep your knife in the sheath for extended periods of time, as it may stretch the leather and as a result your blade will not sit snug in its place. In such cases, soak the sheath in warm (but not hot!) water. If left untreated for a long time, leather may dry out. In such cases apply some leather oil over the surface.
-If the material your blade is made of is not corrosion resistant, wipe it dry after use and from time to time apply over the surface some non-drying oil that is not harmful to health. Treat your knife in a similar manner if you do not use it for an extended period of time.
I hope you will use my knives for many years to come and will be utterly satisfied with your purchase!
