Thank you for choosing a DIONISIO ZAPATERO knives! Our custom handmade knives are one-of-a-kind blend of the most finest modern steels, and traditional ancient craftsmanship. Each of our custom knives has been made, assembled, finished, and sharpened by hand in-house.
Your knife is warranted to be free from defects in craftsmanship and materials by DIONISIO ZAPATERO Ltd. Warranty for all our custom knives is 2 years.
Warranty covers metal parts and work only.
We cannot guarantee natural handle materials (wood, horn, stag, bone, mother of pearl atd.) as they tend to shrink and/or swell with time, climate,etc.
This warranty does not cover normal wear, damage caused by neglect, misuse\abuse, or failure to perform normal maintenance. Natural handle materials (bone, pearl, wood, etc.) are not covered. Handle and blade finishes or coatings worn by normal use are also not covered. Blades harmed or broken by improper sharpening or accidental damage are not covered. Any any owner`s or third party modifications are not covered and may void the warranty.
Damage caused by improper customer disassembly is NOT covered under warranty. Cost to repair damaged knives will be at the discretion of Dionisio Zapatero after inspection by our specialist.
For your custom knife maintenance we strongly recommend to
use a machine or gun oil to lubricate the pivot area. It will help your knife
to operate properly and smoothly.
Please, don`t forget about proper use of your custom knife. Do not try to use your custom knife as a punch, screwdriver, chisel, pry bar or can opener. There are specialized tools designed for these purposes.
Don`t try to punch with your custom knife the car hood, or to imitate other advertising tricks from different commercials.
Do not throw your custom knife - there are special fixed knives designed specifically for throwing.
Do not open your folding custom knife with a flicking - it will lead to damage, sooner or later. This is particularly true for the large folders, with a long and heavy blades. Flicking is the main reason for backlash and blade play.
Wash your carbon steel blade after use - especially when dealing with aggressive environments (lemon etc). When storing a knife with a carbon steel blade - even if stored in a sheath - lubricate the blade with a thin layer of oil.
And there is no 100% stainless steel. "Stainless" simply means that it is less prone to corrosion than other steels. Therefore, do not forget to wipe your stainless steel knife blade dry after use too, and to lubricate the blade while storing, as well.
