Our warranty is pretty simple: if you break it, we will repair or replace it. We will not question the validity of your warranty claim for a broken knife. Warranty is lifetime and transferable. In other words, we warranty the knife no matter how many times it’s been traded, sold or given away – no sales receipt or proof of purchase required. We must have the knife returned to validate a warranty claim.

ESEE KNIVES ARE NOT THROWING KNIVES! They are hardened to a higher Rockwell than throwing knives and will most likely break if thrown, possibly harming the user. So, do yourself and your ESEE knife a favor and DO NOT throw it. Using any knife not meant to be thrown as a throwing knife is idiotic! We would rather idiots not buy our knives.

We do not warranty against rust, normal wear and tear or loss. If you need replacement handles, sheaths or hardware due to loss or damage, please visit our store.

Our carbon steel knives are made from 1095 High Carbon Steel. And while 1095 is a top choice for professional field knives, it will rust and stain if not properly cared for – especially on the cutting edge and around the laser engraving. It is the user’s responsibility to keep the blades properly lubricated and cleaned. We suggest a dry film inhibitor such as TUF-GLIDE or TUF-CLOTH. We use a baked on powder coat on all of our coated knives. It is normal for the coating to wear with use.


We suggest you contact us before returning the knife since we do not warranty normal wear and tear, i.e. worn or scratched coating, dull edge, lost hardware, etc. Only the exact model of knife sent in will be repaired or replaced. We cannot send out a different model, color or configuration than the one sent in for warranty. If you return a knife that is not covered under warranty then we are not responsible for return shipping to you. We highly suggest contacting us before shipping a knife in for warranty. If you are sure you have a warranty issue, then complete this form when you are ready to return  your knife.
