YAKU–yet another knife update.

I contacted Kershaw about the broken torsion bar on my Blur, and Brittany at Kershaw Customer Service told me they’d send me a replacement for free. She also said to send the knife in for a free warranty repair if I had any problems.

Torsion bar arrived in the mail yesterday, took about five minutes to install, and now the Blur is restored to proper *snikt*-ness. So thanks, Kershaw, for backing up your products with great customer service. Mad props, or whatever the kids say these days.

    You know, most of the big name knife companies have really great customer service. Other industries should take notes.

  2. A YAKU:

    The Kershaw is broke
    A call makes it all better
    Customer service!

    I still have my Kershaw … it’s gutted every deer I have killed. Carbon steel, not 440.

    I wish they had orange grips for it, as I have almost lost it twice during the process. Green grips on a hunting knife was not a good idea on my part.

    I found a Buck folding hunter in a parking lot about fifteen years ago. The blade was open and broken, half was missing. I sent it to Buck for an estimate of cost of repair with instructions to toss it if repairing it was more than half the cost of replacing it. I told them that it was a found knife. Buck simply sent me a new, identical knife at no charge. Their nefarious ploy worked. I have bought nearly a dozen buck knives since then both for myself and as gifts. I’ve still got the one they gave me, it’s in my hunting pack in case I encounter a suicidal deer or am attacked by a covey of saber toothed grouse.

    Kershaw’s customer service is outstanding.
    I carry a Scallion daily, and have several times broken the end of the blade off by using it in ways knives should never be used. Round trip there-and-back-again in less than a few weeks, and knife is good as new. I’m a customer for life, and have bought several Kershaws and refer them to anyone asking for a good EDC utility knife.
