-You must be 18 years or older to purchase a product from White Bone Knives
-I put a lifetime warranty on my work and stand behind it completely. I do, however, have some speculations on this lifetime warranty. I will only accept a return on a knife if a manufacturers defect is present.
I WILL NOT ACCEPT RETURNS ON ABUSED KNIVES
Examples like these will void your warranty:
-Extreme use/testing (batoning, chopping, prying)
-Unintended use. Knives are tools and should be respected as such.
-Using the knife for a prybar, hammer, axe, screwdriver, pick, shovel, or hammer.
-There is a right tool for the right job, a knife is not always the right tool.
-Buying one of my knives, you the customer, accept all responsibilities of owning such item. You cannot hold White Bone Knives responsible for any illegal actions or "accidents" that happen after the product has been purchased.
-I am currently not taking custom orders. Sorry!
$15.00 to anywhere in the United states. If you need to ship international please contact me.
-Since this is a handmade item, nothing is "machined" or "milled", so every knife isn't exactly the same as the one before it, however, I can usually hold the tolerances fairly well so you can get what you expect. This being said, there may be minor imperfections on your handmade knife. Blemishes, nicks, wavy lines, tool markings, uneven grind Lines, handle marks, and sheath marks are only surface blemishes and will not affect the knifes performance. If an imperfection like one of these is present, it is not to be considered as a "manufacturer's defect".
PROPER CARE FOR YOUR WHITE BONE KNIFE
-Since I use a high carbon steel, (1095) my knives will rust if not taken care of properly. The blades should be oiled to maintain their rust free finish. Only a thin coat needs to be applied every so often. Personally, I use just a few drops of 3-In-One oil on a rag and wipe down the blade. For food prep, apply some mineral oil. Olive oil or vegetable oil can also work in a pinch until you can get something else.
-I sometimes use natural woods for my handles. They are oiled and waxed, and should hold their finish for a good amount of time. A wood handle benefits from a light coat of wax every so often. (Do not apply too much wax. A little bit goes a long way!) Any form of furniture wax will do. Clean your handle with a damp cloth, and then buff with a soft dry cloth. Apply a thin coat of wax, and let sit until a slight haze is seen. Buff with a soft cloth and you're finished!
-To keep proper edge retention you must hone your knife on a regular basis depending on how much you use it. Remember a sharp knife is more safe than a dull knife. Follow this bit of advice for best results in your cutting performance.
-Stabilized woods, micarta, animal horn, and g-10 are maintenance free!
