    I recently bought a knife from KA-BAR to carry with me whenever im outdoors doing anything. While i was splitting some kindling with it the blade broke in half. Does anybody have any experience with their customer service? i have contacted them but they cant tell me for sure if the warranty will cover my knife. anybody with any info on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Isn't another piece of wood considered a hammer when used as such??????

    i dont know if you would consider a piece of wood a hammer. But it says right on the KA-BAR website that the knife can be used to split kindling. How else would you split the wood if you didnt baton it?

    I'd invest about $7 in one of the flat rate boxes and ship it back to KA-BAR. If it's one of the military style knives it should take a little bit of use. Anyways you have a broken knive and the worst you will have is a broken knife and be out $7. The metal needs to be inspected via a microscope for structural integrity issues.

    No one on here is a knife metal expert nor can they give advice sight unseen.
