    hey all-
    I get a lot of questions about mutants, and how to get one and how we catalog them.

    First I have to address this :
    Official Mutants are made by makers working with us and are part of our quality control process and fall under our full warranty suite.

    if you choose to have someone " modify " your AB and they in turn jack it up please, go to the maker you worked with and ask them to fix the 369.00 + paperweight they just gave you.

    again, we understand people will seek makers to mod their product, but its not an official mutant unless we facilitate it, and if another maker wrecks your knife, I dont think its unreasonable for you to contact them to hold them accountable for their work.

    we do have a very gracious warranty dynamic, to keep it that way we cant absorb other makers/modders work.

    Please dont let this scare you off modding, just make sure you are working with competent people who understand the product, and please understand that they may put you in a position that we would be unable to fix under a warranty concern.

    We dont do a ton of fee for service stuff, but if someone ruins your product and it needs to be restored to factory, you may incur cost. No hard feelings.


    As far as how to get them, you know we do what we can to be fair and we also looking to have them available through some retailers when we have availability. Recently we moved the "4-horsemen" mutants generated by TuffThumbz to BHQ for resale. I would think they should list there in the next week or so. As of now we dont offer a service to make your knife into a mutant, nor do we have any list you can get on for one. We generate them with overflow product and parts not reserved to cover warranty. We send them to makers we have relationships with and we give them carte blanche on the project, think of it like just just supplying the canvas to an artist. If for any reason the product does not meet our qualifications, we do not release it.

    We are working on a new page on our URL that will show all the Official Mutants we have generated, for verification that one you have purchased in the open market is official, and as a bit of eye candy on the webpage ;)

    soon the shop we work with will have a laser engraver and you'll see them marked as "mutants".

    I hope this information clears up questions about Mutants :)


    all the best and keep em flippin!

    quick question

    So If somebody anodizes their own PAB, will it void their warranty?
    Thanks.

    I would have to appraise something like that to see if it is a warrantable concern?

    Im not so sure in what instance anodizing would ruin your product or make it so it didnt function, if youve done it correctly all you should have changed is the color, which shouldnt effect performance.

    in the converse if in your quest to anodize you destroy the product, then you may incur costs to rectify it.

    I don't see a reason to mod a AB or any of the mutants these knives are insane in my eyes and in no way needing to be moded especially by someone else other than who made it. I'm just saying they are perfect the way they are. Great post by the way

    BRS has gone far beyond their call with customer service in the past. I don't think that they'd stop just because of some anno work. If you need taking care of, just ask and see what happens :thumbsup:

    So, the way I read it:

    a) You fuck up your knife WHILE modding... your own fault BUT they will fix it. You just have to pay for it. Which is totally fair and already more than many many manufacturers offer.

    b) You paid someone to mod it and he fucked up... You better make him pay for it. Otherwise: See a)

    c) You modded your AB, didn't fuck it up, but for some reason its not working anymore... They reserve the right to say you have to pay, but if its not connected to your modding efforts, they'll fix it. Again many many manufacturers *cough, cough*, choose the easy way out here.

    :thumbsup:

    Wrong
    there will only be 1 Green bitch that was made by me .
    any other's are just copies . since i built the first and only i have had many requests to do another all have been told no way! other colors are fine but there is only 1 Green Bitch. i helped start the "Mutant" thing and have only made a couple of them .
    only those authorized to build "Mutants" for BRS have done any more.
    Chuck built 5 ,Thumbz did a few ,Palethius did one .none have been Green.
    i guess you got to ask yourself do you want to be the guy that tries to Copy such a knife?

    what matt is saying is that HE will not produce another mutant/proto with his killer toxic green on it because he reserves the right to have only done that for Dr. Rick.
