Warranty / Sharpening info

Welcome to the Boker USA Warranty/Sharpening Info Page.

On this page, we will provide answers to your questions regarding the Boker warranty, repairs, and sharpening of Boker ceramic knives.

Our warranty has been in effect for over 135 years. Any Boker product that is defective in material or workmanship will be repaired or replaced by us at no charge to the customer. Our warranty reads:

"Every Boker product is guaranteed to be free from defects in material and workmanship for the life of the product to the original owner. If this item should fail under normal use, we will repair it or replace it at no charge with an item of equal or better value."

To help you better understand whether your product is covered under warranty, the following items are normally not covered under warranty, although exceptions do exist:

  • Blade rusting, particularly on carbon steel blades.
  • Blade breakage, especially after more than a year of ownership.
  • Handle scales cracking or breaking.
  • Any knife that has been converted to perform as an automatic knife is not covered under warranty at any time. Boker USA, Inc. honors the Federal law that prohibits the importation or selling of automatic knives. Boker USA, Inc. does not import or sell any automatic knives.
    Due to the Federal law barring interstate transportation of automatic knives (switchblades), we are unable to return them when shipped to us. If we receive any automatic knives, we will have no choice but to dispose of them. Boker USA, Inc disclaims any liability for financial loss due to disposal of automatic knives.
    For further information, please contact us at 1-800-992-6537 ext 121.
  • Important notice regarding Butterfly knives:
    Boker Plus Butterfly knives are not available in the US. Some of you may have viewed a posting on the internet showing a Boker Plus butterfly knife. These are not available through Boker USA. Anyone who decides to purchase one overseas or through a foreign dealer will not have a warranty covered by Boker USA. Any sent back to Boker USA for warranty work will result in immediate disposition with no return. There will be no exceptions.

If you would like to send your Boker knife in for repair work or examination to see if it is covered under warranty, it must be accompanied by your phone number, shipping address (no P.O. boxes, please), e-mail address (if applicable) and $5.00 to cover return shipping and handling (in the form of either a check, money order or Visa or Mastercard number). If we do not have a method of contacting you, we will not be able to proceed with any repair or warranty work. If you do not include shipping charges it will cause significant delays in returning your knife to you. If your repair is covered under our warranty, we will return the $5.00 payment along with your knife.

Our mailing address is:
Boker USA, Inc.
Attn: Repair Dept.
1550 Balsam Street
Lakewood, CO 80214-5917

We do recommend you ship your knife to us via insured U.S. mail or through United Parcel Service so it can be tracked.

Warranty returns from Canada may incur additional charges due to customs fees.

BOKER CERAMIC KNIVES
Our ceramic knives are very keen cutting instruments but are not intended for chopping or cutting hard items such as bone, staples, or frozen products and are not to be used for whittling. Also, care must be taken while cutting items such as fibrous vegetables and cheeses.

Please exercise caution when using ceramic bladed knives.

Due to their extreme hardness, which is why they do not need to be sharpened as often as a steel blade, they are brittle. Therefore, blade breakage or chipping is not covered under warranty. We do provide a sharpening service, which can get out most small chips in the blade and restore the original edge.

Do not attempt to sharpen your Ceramic knife on your own.

If you need to have your knife sharpened, please refer to the information below.

Send your knife to:

Ross Cutlery
Attn: Ceramic Sharpening
324 S. Broadway
Los Angeles, CA 90013

The charge for this service is $19.95 plus $10.00 for each additional knife in the same package. This service will take approximately 4 weeks.

Payment to Ross Cutlery must be in the form of a check or money order made out to Ross Cutlery. Please include a note with your name, address (no PO Boxes please) and phone number.

If you have any questions, please call (303) 462-0662 ext. 121.
