Benchmade knives are backed by a serious warranty. If it’s not made right, they’ll fix it or replace it. Forever. Period. This ‘few-questions-asked’ policy has brought some pretty f-ed up knives back to their Oregon City factory warranty department, and these are a few of their all-time favorites.
This model lost its pivot screw somewhere in the Sandbox, and its owner employed a field expedient repair before mailing it back to Benchmade. Congratulations, soldier dude: you got a new Benchmade.
This Benchmade was carried by a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who barely survived an ambush by trans-dimensional extraterrestrial invaders. Or not. They honestly don’t know what the hell happened to this one, but they replaced it anyway.
Nobody is quite sure, but this one was believed to have been incinerated in a vehicle fire after an IED attack. No blade could survive such kinetic and incendiary damage, but Benchmade wanted to keep this one for the museum so its lucky owner got a free replacement knife.
Being well beyond repair, all of these knives were replaced under warranty.
