+ Please allow about 4
business days for "in stock" orders to ship out at this
time of year.
At this point no orders placed without arranging for express shipment should be expected to arrive before Christmas. Please call us if you need to place an order with express shipping.
+ Allow up to 10 days for the sharpening service if required.
+ Please allow us the time to process your order before trying to
check up on it. The more time we dedicate answering emails and phone
calls, the less time we will have to ship orders and the longer they
will take to ship out.
+ Please don't call or email about stock unless you need quantity
on an item. Our site is kept accurate to the best of our ability.
So 99% of the time if it says "in stock", it will be. If
for some reason something happens and it is not available, we will
contact you as soon as possible. In some cases the time spent trying
to verify this with us could result in someone else getting the last
one. This is also another case of allowing us more time so we can
process the orders as quickly as possible.
+ We do offer express shipping options, but they are too complicated
for the shopping cart to figure them out accurately. If you need an
express shipment, please call us and we can figure out the costs for
+ Out of stock items, i.e. products listing an average ship time rather
than saying "In stock",
are likely to take longer than listed at this time of year. Please
do not count on these types of items for Christmas delivery. As always,
we'll do the best we can, but can not garentee turn around on items
we do not have "In house".
+ Availability on all products is limited, so as the month goes on,
more and more items will become unavailable for delivery by Christmas.
+ 12/9 is the last day you can order an "In Stock" item
with the sharpening service and be reasonably sure of receiving it
before Christmas with normal shipping in the Continental US.
+ 12/12 is the last day you can place an "In Stock" order
and be reasonably sure of receiving it before Christmas with normal
shipping in the Continental US.
+ Orders placed after 12/12 may or may not arrive before Christmas.
To guarantee delivery by Christmas, express shipping may be required
depending on where it is shipping to in relation to us. We are in
Illinois. You would need to contact us to get express shipping costs
+ 12/22 is the last day possible to order and still get an in stock
order before Christmas. However, understand that the cost for this
option can be very high on many products. You would need to call us
to arrange for this.
+ All international destinations
would require an express shipping service to arrive before Christmas
at this point in the year. Standard shipping will almost certainly
not make it in time. Due to postal shipping size restrictions, the
cost of express shipping most of our products internationally can
be quite expensive. Please be prepared for this if you contact us
about an express quote.
