Shipping / Payment
We are pleased to be able to sell and ship our products worldwide. For most countries, we ship directly via DHL. For certain countries, we use FedEx, UPS, and EMS.
We are not able to deliver to Russia, N.Korea, and India. We kindly ask for your understanding.
- Information for UK customers:
The United Kingdom has recently implemented new kitchen knife import laws, making it impossible for most shipping companies to send to the country. Until a delivery solution is discovered, we will not ship to the United Kingdom.
- Information for China customers:
Our Shipping Department is closed on the weekends (Saturday, Sunday) and on all National Holidays of Japan. Therefore, any orders placed during the weekend or on a National Holiday of Japan will ship within the next two business days.
If you have specific shipping needs, please CONTACT US before placing your order.
