Even though they need sharpening, your knives will still be able to slice through poor packaging, hurting shipping personnel, and possibly damaging your blades. In order to prevent that we have some important knife packaging instructions.


Step 1:

Pack your knife securely inside a box, the original packaging is perfect. Make sure to include your contact info in the box so we don’t mix up your knives with someone else’s. Use newspaper or bubble-wrap to hold the knife in place. Close the box and shake it, if you don’t hear any movement, you’ve done a good job!


Step 2:

Tightly wrap the box in paper. Here in the shop we use butcher paper.



Step 3:

Clearly label the package, and take care to tape the tearable edges with packing tape.


Now you’re all set! Head on down to the post office and send us your knives.


*Remember to send an email to with your name, email, phone number, what knives are being sent, and the date you’ve sent your package.

Thanks again for your business!
