I have quite a spyderco collection and i guess i am just really hard on my knives because they take their fair of abuse.

Well these old spyderco broke on me the other day (too many openings??)

Will spyderco try to fix it? will they charge me? will they just give me a new one?

I broke a defective one and they replaced it no charge but that thing was brand new, this one is old and beatup.

same answer that i got on my new spyderco, you ship it to us we will assess the knife and call you with how much it will cost to fix it.

I would rather know before hand, because with shipping, insurance, and repair I might just forget about it right now and put it off.

I sent my Police model in a couple of years ago for a sharpening and to have the tip reground where I had broken it off.

They shipped me a new one and returned the check for the return postage that I had enclosed.

I sent them an older model Rescue model that I bought for $25.00 NEW IN THE BOX at the Blade Show in Atlanta years ago.

I had broken the pocket clip that was molded into the handle.

They charged me $20.00 to add a metal clip with 3 screws.

And $5.00 to sharpen, plus return shipping.

The only reason I paid it was to get the knife back in a usable condition.

Without the clip, I had a lot of trouble opening it one handed since it is so slim.

My experience. I am a bit more "choosey" on what I buy now.

ETA: You won't know until they have the knife.
