Shipping Policies and Returns

Shipping Policies 

  • Best Knife USA exclusively uses the United States Postal Service (USPS) for delivery of our orders. This helps us to keep our costs down which in turn allows us to offer our customers lower shipping charges, however, the USPS assumes no liability or responsibility if an uninsured package is damaged, lost, or improperly delivered. 
  • Within 2-5 business days you will receive a shipping email from us with a USPS tracking number signifying that your package is ready for shipment. This is a goal and not a guarantee as there are times when that is just not possible. If problems arise, we will notify you via email.  
  • The delivery dates you see are estimates and around the holidays, expect delays.  The USPS does a wonderful job for us but sometimes things happen.  If you have not taken possession your package within 10 days after receiving your tracking information, please contact us directly so that we can resolve the matter quickly.
