That is actually a common practice, the manufacturer offering a better
warranty than the retailers, Not uncommon for a manufacturer to offer a life
time warranty an $X + X% the retailer offering a shorter warranty at $X
I also like Kershaws knives , I had a model 1050 at one time ,given to
me by my wife , she had my intitials engraved on the blade .
Unfortunately it was taken from my house when it was burgled and I
always meant to replace it but sadly they don't list that model anymore .
In it's place I opted for a limited issue Kershaw , made in Solingen
Germany , has deer antler scales and brass bolster, 80mm hollow ground
blade ,its a folder and I have found the blade to be of good quality ,
price was 150.00AUD about 20 years ago.I dont carry it much at all as
we are not permitted to carry knves in a belt pouch here at any time .
But as a field knife for hunting it's a pearler
For ever day use I have a 3" folding boot knife made by G96 , the
boot holster has long since given up , but I wear a stockmans belt that
has a pouch sewn on to it the knife fits into it and lays parrallel with
the belt ,and has a small flap with a press stud fastner ,It sits just
left of the buckle and is rather obscure ( hides under my drooping gut)
and dosen't stand out ,in fact most people dont realise that I carry a
knife at all except when I take it out and usually get the question
"where did you get that from ?" I reply with a question " the knife or
the gut?" .
The little G96 I've had since the late 70's holds a good edge and
It gets used for every thing from opening parcels to skinning game.
I owned a Puma one time , excellent knife , cost way more than my
Kershaws together when I bought it , unfortunately it's laying in a
field somewhere a long way from where I live now. Hopefully some one
found it and gave it good home.
