    Spyderco auto warranty service

    so the autonomy has caught my eye, and autos are legal in my area.... if it ever needed to go in for a service would spyderco work on the knife or do they hold firm to LEO/Fire/EMT or military?

    not comparing the companies but I emailed protech about their warranty work on autos stating that they are legal here and they said "if its a protech, we will service it if needed". Really made me feel good that if I did indeed buy an auto that I could send it in if god forbid something broke :P

    AFAIK, unless you live in California, Protech could have gotten in trouble with the Feds for returning the knife directly to you. Given Spyderco's past issues with ICE, I seriously doubt they would expose themselves to that risk. In fact, I'm fairly certain they won't even send parts for an auto directly to you unless you are in law enforcement or the military. The normal drill for getting a privately owned auto repaired by its manufacturer, assuming that doing so requires the knife to cross state lines, is to have a dealer return it and receive it after it is repaired.

    I have often wondered this myself. I have a BM Auto that has been without a tip for years because I couldn't send it in for a blade replacement.

    Heck, Microtech wouldn't even sell me a spare clip or "glass breaker" clip screw for my Ultratech.

    That is ridiculous. I reground the tip of my 3500 to look like a Graham Razel now. It still cuts and the spring still fires hard. I am kinda glad I sold all my Microtechs. The side folders were the only ones I truly loved anyway. I found the OTFs to be fun, but the joy in use was much less that that of the presentation.
