Additional return information
Because all of Knives are custom order, returns or refunds are not accepted. The reason for this is because it is impossible for me to know how you used the knife and why it is broken or malfunctioned. It also was a custom made knife made specifically for one person and cannot be resold to someone else.

Sorry no refunds or returns on any knives
