Thread: Broken EKA Swingblade Knife

    Broken EKA Swingblade Knife


    My EKA swingblede (which has had next to no use), has just had the main knife blade snap in half whilst cutting around the flat joint on the back leg of a fallow.

    Now I can live with the fact thet the "quality Sheath" which they supplied with the knife had the belt look fall to bits within a week of use, but I just cant live with half a bloody blade!

    To top it all the knife is 8 months old & the shop that sold it (Town & Country Botley) has now closed.

    It has probably only been used for a field dressing less than 10 times, as its been a backup in the roe sack since the belt loop went within the first week of use!

    As the knife seems to have a 10 year warranty, does anyone know who is the UK importer so that I can vent my fury at them?

    Mate I would send an email to their head office:

    I did this when the belt loop on the sheath broke and they sent me out a new one.

    Trouble is that I shoot so many deer that I need a cutlery set mate!

    As I said, it was only a backup knife anyway & a crap one at that.

    Lee, there are 2 different types of the same knife so it is important to know which one you have first.
    I sold one a while back and the post got quite 'deep' into the differences between them which should help you. See here:
    Hope this helps?
    I bought some with a view to keeping one but ended up with all my mates having them and me without!

    As all EKA knives are covered by a 10 year warranty

    I think on reading this

    you may not even have to return the broken one.

    Best of luck.

    Many thanks & yes its the EKA swingblade, the nice green branded box has lasted longer than the knife it seems!
