carelessness can result in cuts that may require medical
attention, ruin your clothes, and cause the loss of important
body fluids or parts. Since few people enjoy pain or injury,

knives are warranted against defects in workmanship. If it
breaks during normal use, return it to me and I will repair or
replace it at my discretion. Remember that these are knives,
not pry bars or screwdrivers. If you use it for those things,
you shouldn't have, life threatening situations excepted. If
you want a throwing knife, buy a throwing knife. They are
spring tempered and won't hold an edge. My knives are not
spring tempered but will hold an edge.
materials like wood and ivory have characteristics of their
own. The humidity where you live may not be what I have here
in Southern Oregon. As a consequence, natural materials that
can change with humidity and moisture are beyond my control.
For instance, ivory will sometimes crack slightly. I can't
change that unless it's been stabilized. Some woods have the
same problem. I will do all within my abilities to minimize
it, but I cannot control it. Ultimately, it's part of the
character of the material.

that I do in the blades I use.

Since it impossible for me to know every knife law where you
live, if you can't have it, don't ask me to make it or sell it
to you. That will keep us both out of trouble.
