  • What is your Warranty?

Curtiss Knives are built to last and come with an Unconditional Lifetime Warranty within reason.  When I say within reason, it just means to use common sense. Your knife is not a screwdriver, pry bar or an ax. Don’t use it in that manner. Use it for what a knife is designed for, cutting. Now I don’t care if you are the original owner or the 10th owner. I warranty the knife, not the person. But if for some reason, your knife is defective due to materials or workmanship, I will repair your knife, including parts and labor, or replace it with a new knife at my discretion. If you need a repair or just want your knife sharpened, please email me. 

  • What kind of Maintenance do you recommend for my knife?

I recommend routine maintenance to keep your knife in excellent condition and working order (even if you don’t use the knife on a regular basis). A simple cleaning and lube is all that's needed. Spray WD-40 down both sides of the pivot area and blow out with air. No need to disassemble.
