If you buy Bark River, it is warranted for life so it may not matter what you buy. I don't really know about how they would take care of wood handle failure, but I do know that Mike Stewart replaced some knives destroyed in a house fire before. I figure that they'd probably fix or replace your grips (wood, micarta, G10) if any of them fail somehow.
