The Case Limited Lifetime Warranty

We warrant each and every Case knife to be free of defects in material and workmanship for the life of the owner, and we will repair or replace with a new Case knife, at our option, any Case knife that is defective. That‘s how strongly we feel about the quality of our cutlery. Case does not warrant its products against normal wear or misuse. Case knives are not intended to be used as hammers, chisels, pry bars or screwdrivers. If your knife was damaged due to misuse, our repair department can analyze the damage and repair it for a reasonable fee. Our limited lifetime warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may have other rights which vary from state to state.

Repair Statement

If you believe your Case knife has a manufacturing defect, mail your knife along with a written explanation of the problem to: W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Co., Repairs Department, 50 Owens Way, Bradford, PA 16701. We recommend you choose a trackable shipping option and insure your package. Please include your name, address, phone number, any specific repair instructions and whether your knife holds sentimental or collectable value. If your knife meets our warranty guidelines and cannot be repaired, we may, at our discretion, offer to replace it with a currently manufactured knife that most closely matches the one you sent. If you decide to accept the replacement knife option, your old knife cannot be returned. A knife with sentimental or collectable value will be returned and not replaced as noted. If your knife cannot be repaired and does not meet our warranty guidelines, it will be returned 'as is.' Some knives cannot be repaired depending on the limited availability of parts. Please note all repairs are made with currently manufactured parts. If your knife can be repaired and is not covered by our warranty, you will be contacted by mail with the non-warranty charges. Please allow 6-8 weeks for service. You can reach our Repair Center by email at
