As a Spyderco collector myself i got a problem with my Spyderco Yojimbo. Apparently the clip got bend on the weakest point where the hole is situated. I could bend the clip back and although there was cosmetic flaw on the clip it was still functional. I adressed this problem on the Spyderco forum and got a quick reply from the designer of the knife M Janich, in where the problem was already adressed towards Sal and that there was a solution in the making. Because i love the design and the thoughts that went into the knife i was reluctant to send the knife to the Spyderco Warranty departement. I asked Sal by mail if they would send me a new designed clip when available, and gave him my shipping information and asked what payment they prefered. About 2 weeks later i received a brand new redesigned clip with longer screws. This clip is wider and thicker, and combined with longer screws it is IMO as strong as the other clips on the high end Spyders. The parcel , mailing costs, and the clip itself was completely FREE ! IMHO this is a textbook example how Spyderco has a Warranty policy that exceeds everything that could be expected. Very pleased. Thank u to SAl and the Spyderco crew!
