Frequently Asked Questions

Knife Details

Q: Are these knives real or digital?
The knives we have available are all real knives with steel blades. All of the knives we make are intended for collection or display purposes only.

Q: Do the knives come sharp or dull?
All knives are sent sharp unless otherwise specified. There are some blunt/dull knife options available. This means the knife will be completely dull and unable to cut.

Q: What do the dull knives look like?
The knife looks almost exactly the same as the sharp version. The only difference is that the edge where the blade would be sharpened is left untouched. This results in slightly more of the original finish being left on the blade.


Q: Where does the order ship from?
All of our orders ship from our European warehouse with standard UPS Ground courier service.

Q: How long before I receive my order?
All orders are typically fulfilled within 2-4 business days. Depending on the shipping option selected at checkout, this will determine the estimated delivery date. Please refer to the tracking number provided to get an exact estimate on the delivery time. Delays due to customs clearance or covid related issues cannot be accounted for with accurate time estimations.

Q: Do you ship internationally?
A: Yes, countries we ship to are listed on our international shipping list. We fulfill orders from the US and EU depending on the shipping address of the order.

Q: Will my knife be taken by customs?
A: US orders will be fulfilled via our US warehouse and EU/UK orders will be fulfilled via our EU warehouse. Post Brexit shipments must clear customs.  Responsibility is on the purchaser to ensure legality, and filling out proper forms if necessary.  We are not liable for customs seizures. Import fees may exist.

Q: Are these legal in my country/state?
If your country is listed on our accepted shipping list, we have verified the knives should make it to you. Keep in mind these are collectible display knives that are not intended for regular use. Check your local laws to know the difference between legal to own and legal to carry.  Responsibility falls on the purchaser to know if they are purchasing legal goods where they live.
