Kudos to Buck
Just had to give a public thumbs-up to Buck Knives for a recent experience.
A few weeks ago, I was using my daily carry, a Buck Rush, to whittle down a piece of wood. (You know, it's those important things we carry a knife for ...) I went to flip a small chip from the cut, and the tip snapped off.
"Shocked" would be a good term. Never had the tip of a knife snap off like that -- & I certainly wasn't prying on it.
I have to assume it was a defect of some sort in the metal, as the knife is well-made, and every Buck knife I've ever owned has stood up to abuse. (My hunting knife has been a Buck for years, & those things will go thru bone with no substantial problem -- & no tips snapping off, to-date.)
So I sent it back. Explained what happened, and asked if they could help me out. Yesterday, I got my answer: a brand new knife, and a coupon for a nice discount on a new Buck knife, to make up for my inconvenience.
If every company stood by their products like that ... well, we all know that they don't. And it's a mighty pleasant thing to see a company that still does!
Kudos to Buck Knives! I'll continue being a loyal fan.

Excellent! I have a Buck and am very happy with it. Nice to know they stand by their products. Had a similar issue with a Spyderco. They were fantastic also.

Quality service is as important as the product...sounds like they are 'top rate'...

The knife I used the most during my time in the Army was a old Buck 110 folder.... Damn nice knife that took and held a good edge....

Bucks are good.....I still have a Woodsman model, that I got for my 18th birthday.....which would make it 40 years old. The sheath is worn pretty bad
but the knife is still in beautiful shape.

Still have the 110 (Folding Hunter) I got at 16..................last year.............
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
