OTF Lifetime Warranty

Your Cutting Edge Heretic, Mark 1, and Lightning OTF knife is warranted to the original purchaser only. Any knife returned for warranty consideration must have an assigned order number from our store. Please contact us for this number before sending your knife. Shipping of the knife to Midtech Knives is the responsibility of the customer but will be paid for by Midtech Knives. OTF Knives are warranted against defects in workmanship and material. Midtech Knives will not ship replacement internals or parts to customers to attempt to repair knives on their own. Midtech Knives will not warranty products due to loss by theft or accident, damage caused by abuse, neglect, misuse, accident, improper blade sharpening, normal wear and tear including paint loss, fading, discoloration, or chips, introduction of foreign substances, or disassembly. Do not use your knife as a pry bar, screwdriver, chisel, or punch. Do not throw your knife. Midtech Knives will not warranty blades or handles that are twisted, bent, chipped, gouged, warped, or have had finishes removed. Use of Midtech knives for any purpose other than cutting is considered abuse and will void the warranty. Midtech Knives will assume no liability for lost or damaged shipments to or from our warehouse for warranty work. Please be aware these knives use a dry fire system which does NOT require any oil/lube, and adding any type of liquid, lube, or any other foreign substance to the knife will affect performance of the knife and may void the warranty. Knives returned with any type of lube inside the case of the knife will be automatically returned as is. Your Lighting, Heretic & Mark 1 OTF knife is a dry fire system.


Knives sent in for warranty repair without a return address inside the package have a chance of not being returned because we will not know who it came from. If you plan on moving, going on vacation, or any such situation where you will be switching your address you need to use your updated address. Midtech Knives is not responsible for forwarding your knife to you multiple times. This warranty only covers the above mentioned OTF Knife brands.
