I just wanted to extend a warm thank you to the Spyderco Warranty and Repair service. I sent in my blacked out, PM2 with a chip and broken tip a little less than a month ago for repair. There wasn't anything inherently wrong with the knife. It was all on me. I damaged the blade while cutting feather sticks for tinder for a campfire. It was dark and I hit an unforeseen rock, probably multiple times, while really digging into a knotty stick. Like I said, the knife didn't have any defects from a production standpoint, just a mishap of my own doing.
Anyway, I sent the knife away with the money to pay for the tip repair, and return shipping. I didn't bother with the chip, because I figured I could sharpen that out over time. After getting notification that my knife was on its way home, I was excited to see how the repair turned out. Low and behold what did I find in the box, but a note from Spyderco with my returned check stapled to it, and a brand new blacked out, PM2, perfect in every way!
I by no means expected such benevolence from the company, since I caused the damage, but boy am I supremely grateful. So, once again Thanks Spyderco for the exceptional customer service!.
