You may return most new, unopened items within two weeks of delivery; items are subject to a 15% restocking fee. We’ll pay the return shipping costs if the return results from our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.).
We will inspect the knife, and if we find the item has been used, damaged, or carried, we will return the knife to the customer and will not process the refund.
You should expect to receive your refund within 14 business days of giving your package to the return shipper. This period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (3 to 7 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (2 to 3 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (2 to 5 business days). However, in many cases, you will receive a refund more quickly.
For custom engraved products, all sales are final. No returns or refunds will be offered unless the text engraved is incorrect or misspelled. See our engraving page for more information.
If you need to return an item, simply login to your account, view the order using the “Complete Orders” link under the My Account menu, and click the Return Item(s) button. We’ll notify you via e-mail of your refund once we’ve received and processed the returned item.
