After a weekend in the woods just gone (a Scout 'survival weekend'), one of my friends has managed to chip the edge of this Falkniven S1. It is chipped in several places.
He did it whilst cutting up rabbits (cutting through the legs by hand, onto a wooden block with no nails/stones etc in its surface, not using a baton) over the course of about 15 minutes.
He has had the knife for about a year, although in that time it has only had a few outings, and hasn't been substantially sharpened (i.e. the cutting edge hasn't been modified/worn down to the wrong profile).
It was cold (at most about minus 2 degrees c during the time he was cutting), but I really wouldn't expect that to happen with a knife that wasn't being abused.
What do people advise? Is it worth contacting the seller or Fallkniven direct, or is it likely that they will simply say the knife has been abused?
I must say I feel quite bad for him- i have had an S1 for years, and never had any problems- wholeheartedly recommending them to him when he was looking at buying.
