Default Buck knife broke!!

My buck knife broke while field dressing a deer. I could not believe it, but when I extracted it from the deers sternum, a piece have fragged off. Luckly I was able to retreive the fragment before continuing the job.

Hate to hear it man, but I have had some poor experiences with Buck Knives as well. I always carry my Gerber pocket knife with me but I do have a specific huning knife (Buck knife) that I use. The Buck has gotten fairly flimsy, especially when it encounters a bone during field dressing or boneing out a deer.

Wow!!! What model were you using??

I've been using a Buck 119 for about ten years now. Bought myself one early in my Army career that went with me on every field problem. Lost it after a couple seasons hunting here and kicked myself severely in the behind for doing so. First thing I did was go out and buy another 119, was fortunate to catch the 100 yr (or was it 50) anniversary model. All I do is sharpen it up at the beginning of each season and again after every deer.

Any luck getting Buck to replace the knife???

I sent a buck folding hunter back to Buck and they replaced it. It would not stay locked, it was something like 30 years old though. They are good knives!

I am, or was using a 16 yr old 691c Zipper. I emailed them asking if pictures would suffice replacement as I really don't think it can be repaired and I don't have and don't want to go out and buy a temp gut hook and or knife in the mean time.

WOW, Don't you just love it when you take the time to send a pointed and specific question to a company regarding warranty replacement of one of their products and you get this?


"Please mail your knife in for a warranty replacement.

Send to:

Buck Knives
Attn: Warranty Repair Dept.
660 S. Lochsa St.
Post Falls, ID.
83854

It is highly recommended you send your package both traceable and insured in case the package is lost or damaged during shipping. Your shipping company will then compensate you.
Buck Knives does not cover lost items.

We are currently in our busy season and turn around time is running
6-8 weeks from the date of arrival in our facility.

Thank you,

Service Dept."


Its like they never even bothered to read the email at all.

Please mail your knife in for a warranty replacement.

But at least they started the replacement email with the above.

That's pretty cool. . . . .

I never doubted for a second it would get replaced, as a matter of fact I expected as much. The question I asked in my original correspondence was, would digital images suffice warranty evaluation as the knife is somewhat functional and I have no backup while the knife is in transit. keep in mind, it is now deer season. and really-
6 - 8 weeks???
