Your Myerchin Rigging Knife
Your Myerchin knife is a precision tool. Like all precision tools, the manufacturing tolerances are very close; hence the clean open and snap (walk and talk) when the components are opened and locked. We continuously utilize our quarter century of marine experience in the manufacturing process constantly updating our techniques and materials as warranted by advances in the field. We make your knife to function as well as possible in a harsh marine environment. It is imperative that the owner respects the integrity of the tool and treats it accordingly. After use near salt water, rinse the entire knife in fresh water and apply a few drops of oil to the two hinge pins. Make sure the mechanism is reasonably free of dirt and debris. While it is possible to manufacture a “rust proof” knife... the resulting product performs very poorly. The Pro-grade German Marine stainless that we use is comparable to 440C for hardness and edge-holding properties with additional anti-oxidation elements added for the final crafting of our knives.
Our “Limited Lifetime Warranty” is as follows:
If your Myerchin knife fails during reasonable use due to a manufacturing error or unseen defect, return it to us immediately for replacement or repair. Of course this does not apply if the knife has been abused or used in an improper manner. Note that a well-used, well-cared for knife is always covered for the lifetime of the original owner. Myerchin will make the final decision on whether a knife has been abused or not.
Examples of what IS NOT covered by this warranty:
• An abused knife where the blade or spike has been used as a pry bar.
What can you do if your knife has been neglected and the mechanism is frozen?
We suggest that you spray the knife liberally with WD-40 (or similar) in a zip lock bag and leave it for a week or so. Usually this will allow the oil to penetrate the mechanism so you can open the knife and carefully clean it. Most rust is surface (cosmetic) and simply needs to be loosened and cleaned.
