Terms & Policies 



All items are sold on a First Come, First Served basis.  My online ordering system is available 24 – 7. All completed Orders are normally shipped the following business day after 3 PM EST. By placing an order online you are agreeing to ALL the terms and policies of this business and you accept full legal responsibility for owning the items purchased.

Requests to hold knives via email or phone cannot be guaranteed.

If you are not satisfied with your purchase notifiy me within 48 hours of receipt of the knife.

If there is a problem with the production / function of a knife I will contact the Maker and assist you to get the issue resolved.


Order Cancellation (before Shipping)

Do the Automated Ordering process we utilize, the numerous Orders we process each day and the dozens of emails and phone calls I field each day I cannot guarantee to cancel any order before it shipped.

When a customer pays for an order that item is removed from Inventory and thus unavailable to other Customers who would purchase it at that time.

Due to an increasing volume of “Buyers Remorse” Cancelled Orders ~ AS OF 1 Jan 2019 – A 5% Order Cancellation / Restock Fee will be assessed to any Order placed and then subsequently cancelled before shipping.  This Fee will only partially cover the Order Processing (two ways), Inventory adjustment and Accounting regulation.

My advice is – do not place an item in your Cart you are not going to purchase.



Occasionally there will be a knife listed on the site that is NOT available for return, this will be clearly noted at the Bottom of the Description page and will state “Sold AS IS” or perhaps “Not Available for Return”.


An Item may be returned for any reason within 48 hours and you may receive Store Credit for the purchase price. Shipping charges are non-refundable.  Once the Credit is applied (after the receipt of the Returned Item) that amount may be used to purchase any item on the website.  A Max of 10% difference may be returned with a re-purchased item (ie. a $100 Credit allows for the purchase of a $90 item and a $10 Refund will also be included).

Choosing Store credit allows you to return any item and select something now or in the future and not lose any money.


*Returns for Refund are subject to a 20% Restock Fee. This Restock Fee is a low estimate of Order Processing (two ways), Inventory control, Shipping & Packing, Inspection and Accounting.


The item must be returned in the same condition in which it was received and it must be received by me via an Insured method of shipping within 5 days of initial Return notification. Shipping charges are non-refundable.

I make every effort to describe the knives I sell as accurately as possible.  If there was an error in the description of the Condition of the knife, once I have received the knife in return I will verify the Condition issue and the Restocking fee will be waived.  Errors of Knife Specifications (ie. Blade Steel or Blade Length) in the description may occur and returns because of description error will incurr a Restock Fee.

** If a knife is returned due to a subjective characteristic such as Flipping action, detent variation, inadequate sharpness, actual color to online picture variation, blade being off center, incorrect Box, etc. –  the Restock Fee will apply.

I do not guarantee the durability of any natural handle material.

Refunds will be credited back to the original payment method.

*IMPORTANTNEW Customers – I no longer accept any form of online Payment that is connected to a free, web-based, or e-mail forwarding address. The customer must provide an ISP or Domain based email address as well as a working Telephone number.  Further, if you are a Domestic Customer using your Pers CC the Shipping address and the address on CC must match – all will be verified before shipment of any order.  If you are a returning Customer please email me for any exceptions. 



Completed Orders are normally shipped the following business day.

Every time you place an order, you may choose the shipping method using the online ordering process.  The costs are Flat Rate depending on method.  Our default method of shipping is FedEx.  USPS Priority Mail will be used for items going to International, PO Box or Military APO/FPO addresses.


I gladly accept orders from all around the globe.  International Orders are Insured while inside US Borders ONLY, once the package has left the US the customer accepts responsibility if the package is lost, stolen or damaged in transit.  Customer understands that International Orders have no coverage of loss or damage once the package is outside the US.

Shipping rates and fees may vary depending on the delivery address for your order. To see the shipping rate information specific to your order’s destination, use my automated check out feature and choose a shipping method.

Your packages may be subject to the customs fees and import duties of the country to which you have your order shipped. These charges are always the recipient’s responsibility.  I would like my international customers to be aware that cross-border shipments are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.

In most cases the actual cost of shipping is greater than the amount you pay, if this happens we do not ask you to pay extra to cover the difference.  Conversely, if the actual shipping cost is less than the amount you paid we do not refund the difference.


Email Alert / Notification

If you are looking for a knife from a specific maker or want to be notified when new items are added to a certain category, our Email Notification system will promptly and automatically send you an email when an item is posted in the category you are interested in. Simply sign up for the category you wish to be notified about or signup up for multiple categories. It’s easy and we will never sell your information.



While I would like to be able to accommodate every request for: extra pictures, Model search from a particular Maker, first dibs on a certain knife, inventory lists from certain Makers, etc. – to do this for one person would be unfair to all of my customers.  I list a wide variety of fixed blades Monday through Thursday and custom folding knives each Friday (FOLDER FRIDAY).  The best way to find something you are looking for is to check the website often and sign up for the Email Notifications.
