"Your Weapon is Badly Damaged."

Posted by Brian Hermansen on

If you're a Zelda fan like I am, then this message may be familiar by now. In Breath of the Wild, the newest addition to the Legend of Zelda series, all of your weapons have a very short life-span. In other words, your weapons break, and you need to replace them often.

So let's talk about broken weapons, and by weapons, we mean keys. With that said, we do not condone using these as weapons. :)

Without a doubt, the single most common question we receive is "How durable are your keys?" Sometimes, this isn't even a question at all, but a statement on a Facebook ad that states, "Cool looking, but this will break way too easily." Funny enough, upon some inquiring, the commenter has never actually touched, seen, or used our keys. And we respond as nicely as possible, "Hey there! Actually, our keys are made from the same material as most other keys (nickel-plated brass), and they are actually harder to break, due to the natural leverage that the cross-guard in the design provides!"

As sales-y as it sounds, it's actually true. But of course, we don't blame someone for being a bit skeptical. After all, if I saw the ad online, as tempted as I might be, I would be skeptical at first, as well.

So let's get to the main question - will this key break?

With normal, every day use in a normal lock? Absolutely not!

We pride ourselves on providing the absolute highest quality products. That's the difference between a key from The Key Armory and any other key made of zinc that you can buy on Amazon for a buck. And with that, we guarantee satisfaction on every single key we ship! If it has a defect, we'll replace it. If it's cut incorrectly (regardless of whose fault it is), we'll replace it. If it breaks, we'll replace it. Simple as that!

But don't just take my word for it. You can check out over 50 Facebook reviews, all of which prove the quality of the keys we carry. Some of them, in fact, talk about our guarantee policy and how they received replacements quickly and without hassle! Beyond that, each individual product on our website has several reviews, all of which have 5 star ratings. Take the Hero's Sword for example - over 40 5 star reviews!

That's not to say it can't happen. We have had a total of 2 keys reported broken since we began The Key Armory, both of which were, according to the customer, due to extremely difficult-to-unlock deadbolts. And, of course, we were quick to get replacements out to those customers that reported the keys.

The whole point of this post is to say this: you can rest assured that when you buy from us, you are getting the absolute best quality possible! Each key we sell is created with durability in mind, and we strive to provide not only the best key possible, but the best experience possible! Of course, feel free to leave any questions, comments or concerns in the comments section below, and we'll address them as quickly as possible! :)
