"My personal opinion, take it with a pound of salt, is that if the OP spent a fraction of the time communicating with GEC directly as he did with us on this forum, he would be much happier today." what did i say i did in the first and other posts ??? i plainly said i asked for a replacement when i first comunicated with them. they would not do it, then today when i tried to talk more with them again about the problem, i found out they had already shipped it back to me.

Sounds like there was just a ""big mis-communication"" all the way around ???? that will eventually get "'FIXED"" !!!___ Anyway,I sure hope so **** GEC is a 100% Stand UP Company, that I have had many dealings with__and had dealings with most all, of their dealers____ in the real world,all does not go smooth,all the time___but it sounds like,Christine,has stepped up to the plate again,to get this ""problem"" solved ::tu:: ::tu:: cbnutt, When this is all over with ,I hope you are happy with the outcome and will let us all know,how it worked out ??? _______ I really do believe,that GEC,will remain,the best USA,knifemaker,in business,no matter what ( or who leaves) ::hmm:: as long as ""Christine Tucker"",is the ,customer service representative ::nod::

And no____I don't work for GEC****____ don't like every knife they have made___and have been ticked off,at some answers,Christine gave me !!!! ::ds::

I have not dealt directly with GEC for any knife purchases in the past or regarding any warranty or repairs issues, but it strikes me as really odd that a manufacturer would say they could not replace a defective knife because it was purchased through a distributor??? ::uc::

I have dealt with many different cutlery companies for years when I managed a retail cutlery store and I have never heard of such a policy, especially on a knife that has not been used. If the blade is hitting the backspring, that is a manufacturing error, not something the distributor did or even the customer.

Is it really the GEC policy that they cannot warranty a knife purchased though a distributor, or did you just talk to someone at GEC who didn’t know what they were talking about? ::shrug::

cbnutt do'nt worry about you computer excellance. i touched a computer for the 1st time at 70 years of age & a cro magnon could certainly spell & communicate better than myself--anyone with a modicum of intelligence & courtesy should be able to extrapolate what most of we dummies are saying. computer efficacy is'nt a true index of one's character or native intelligence. -HiPower

I agree 100%! Who cares, this isn't a classroom with points off for spelling and grammar.

This post got me thinking about an #85 I got recently with plans to EDC.
When I opened the knife there was a nick in the blade, I thought maybe the distributor
or factory dropped it or that a postal inspector was somehow responsible. I did not
worry too much as my plans were to EDC and would wait until I sharpen past it, no biggie.
Well, I was thinking about this post and realized that maybe my knife was striking the
pivot pin too. Sure enough...the mar in the blade lines up EXACTLY with the center pin!!!
This #85 has moderate snap but has not cracked the Stag yet so thats good.
Here is the best pic I can get.........so you are not alone cbnutt. ::tear::

good to know Imband, probly something they need to look into a bit, iam guessing just a bit shaved off the spring at the center rivot area would cure it when they make it.
