    Time doesn't seem to have much bearing when these things happen. have seen it happen to knives with many years on them. (BG-42 Sebenzas).
    Could be something as minor as temperature that causes a problem.

    I had that happened to me in the same spot on a ZT 0551 with an Elmax blade, and that's an even thicker heavier blade. ZT replaced the blade under warranty and I'm certain any reputable manufacturer would do the same.

    USPS Tracking shows that the knife was delivered on Thursday. I'm sure it's a busy time of year for them, but maybe they'll get a chance to look at it this week & let me know what's going on.

    Yes. I got an email from Kayla in CS, on 12/18 saying that they got it & they'd get it turned around as soon as possible.

    Edit: Date corrected.

    Update: My Starbenza 25 has a new blade & I'll have it back soon. CS just called to confirm my shipping address & inform me that they'll be emailing a UPS tracking number shortly.

    OK. My 25 made it back from Idaho & is in my pocket again. Turn around was exactly one month after confirmation of receipt from CRK & that includes the Christmas & New Year holidays, plus an extra delay yesterday by UPS due to snow.
