Care and Warranty
Knife Care and Warranty
D-2 Tool Steel and 440C Stainless Steel are my primary knife steels. D-2 is a very tough, wear resistant, and stain resistant tool steel, but it does require some care. Prolonged exposure to acidic fluids or blood will corrode the blade if not properly cared for.440C Stainless Steel is one of the most corrosion resistant knife steels, but it is not rustproof or stainproof. It can rust if minimal care is not taken.
You should keep your knife clean and dry. If you intend to store your knife for long periods, do not store it in the leather sheath. Leather sheaths can trap moisture and naturally occurring leather acids and this may cause rust or some discoloration.
Semi-Chrome and Renaissance Wax are great products for applying a protective layer of wax on your blades.Rubbing with a light machine oil is beneficial also. Brass and Nickel Silver guards may be buffed to a shine using Semi-Chrome and a soft cloth. Brasso is also great for brass guards only.
I will warranty my knives for life. If your Lynn knife ever fails due under normal use, just return it to me for free repair. A free replacement will be provided if the knife cannot be repaired. This warranty does not cover abuse or misuse of a Lynn knife. If you would like to send your Lynn knife in for sharpening or cleaning, I will provide this service free to my customers except for shipping costs. If you have any questions, please give me a call or send me an email.Stephen Lynn.
