I purchased my knife from a knife store in Reedsport some may know the store. The little that did I know about Kershaw knifes was that there is a life time warranty right? Wrong From the Kershaw web site Do you sell factory seconds? Generally, no; however there is one exception. We do sell some factory seconds during our annual Warehouse Sale. Please understand that, since these are “seconds” and we do not consider them first quality, they do not carry the Kershaw Lifetime Warranty. The Warehouse Sale is held around Thanksgiving, in our Tualatin, Oregon facility only. The link KAI USA : Kershaw FAQ's The knife I bought has xxxx stamped on it which means no warranty. What I do not understand is that a knife that does not meet their standards is still being sold under their name yet carries no warranty. Most companies would not release a product that does not meet their standards I feel like I got ripped off as the knife was not cheap What’s your take on this?
