Worth noting that the lever itself is only a yr warranty and sounds like a lot of guys get several yrs at least out of em. The prong is under the belts warranty though - lifetime, at least for suede. Leather is only lifetime provided you oil it routinely. I love my suede though and it's cheaper so can't go wrong there. I don't mind buying a couple new levers down the road but it's significantly pricier than a single prong in the long run.
