Packing Your Knives:

Some of the packages that show up in our Warranty Department for service are frightening. There are packages with blade tips that have pierced the cardboard box and are lying in wait for the next person who picks them up. There are boxes with great jumbles of knives just rattling around in them, cutting into each other. With just a little care, this doesn't have to happen to your package. Remember that even a dull knife can be dangerous and follow these easy tips for safe packing:


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 a tea towel, 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: 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 #3: Include a copy of your completed Warranty & Sharpening Request Form (and keep a copy for yourself). Then close and tape your box according to shipper recommendations.

Tip #4: Include a copy of your completed Service Form (and keep a copy for yourself). Then close and tape your box and drop off at Australia Post with the reply paid details written on the outside of the carton.
