Limited Lifetime Warranty

All Reate Knives carry a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Reate packages their knives from the factory with a few spare parts, such as; grip screws and washers in case they are needed.  They do not often come with extra blade pivot screws.  Reate Knives are made of the highest quality materials and workmanship.  The factory uses a type of thread locker on their blade pivots so the blade lock up tension remains consistent.  If adjustments or maintenance is necessary it is recommended that you send in your knife to Reate Knives directly for service, to avoid stripping your pivot screws.  If you do not have the correct tools or knowledge of the disassembly process you will most likely strip the pivot heads, and possibly mar your knife accidentally.  Warning: Heating the blade pivot screws with a heating element can cause damage to the knife and is evident when it is disassembled and examined.
