Even dull knives can be dangerous—especially if not packed properly for shipping. We’ve received packages with blade tips that have pierced the cardboard box and boxes with great jumbles of knives just rattling around inside, cutting into each other. Please follow these easy tips for safe packing:
Do not place loose knives in shipping box.
Carefully wrap and package knives in box.
Tip #1: Sheath or wrap fixed-blade knives and kitchen knives. If the knife has a sheath, place it in its sheath. If not, wrap it in several layers of newspaper or bubble wrap, making sure to fully cover the tip. If you are returning more than one knife, wrap each knife individually, and then wrap them all together so that they won't roll around in the box, possibly causing damage to the blades or handles.
Tip #2: Make sure folding knives are closed, then wrap the closed knife in several layers of newspaper or bubble wrap. If you wish to keep your original box, please do not send it in with your warranty shipment. All boxes sent in with warranty shipments will be recycled.
Tip #3: Fill your box with packing material—such as packing peanuts, bubble wrap, or newspaper. Place a layer of packing material in the bottom of your shipping box. Then place the knives on top of the filler and, finally, add another layer of filler on top of the knives.
Tip #4: Include a copy of your completed Warranty/Service Form and keep a copy for
yourself. Then close and tape your box according to shipper recommendations.
