Step steel warranty and step blacksteel vs. Ls5

27 February 2019 - 01:09 PM

Anyone deal with step steel warranty and know if they are pretty strict with the 1 year warranty? Had a pair of black steel for edge holder that broke the other day. Hadn’t used them more than a year and probably only got them sharpened half dozen times at most. Bought them and had them sitting for a while with intention of getting profiled and not doing so. I guess that’s my fault for not using them right away. Anyways they broke the other day about a month or so after the warranty would have ended and as I said I really hadn’t used them that much so it’s a little disappointed for a pair of $140 steel. Is it worth reaching out to them?

And also does anyone have any comparisons to LS5 for durability and performance. Was looking at them possibly since they are a bit cheaper. Could just be a one-off experience for my black steel breaking, although I don’t remember blocking any shots or having any big impacts. I even finished the game before I realized they were broken actually.
