Terms and Conditions of knivesandtools.com
SHIPPING AND SHIPPING COSTS
We keep stock at KATO Group's local warehouse in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands. Every product has a stock label indicating if a product is in stock and ready for shipment or not. Orders will be shipped with DHL and GLS (who hand our parcels over to local mail carriers).
PRICES AND VAT
Prices listed on our website include VAT. Depending on the destination of the parcel the VAT will be deducted in the checkout. The same applies when ordering as a company with a valid VAT number.
RETURNS AND REFUNDS
30-Day Money-Back Guarantee
We guarantee your satisfaction with all knivesandtools merchandise. You can always cancel your order at any time for a full refund within 30 days of delivery in accordance with your rights under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000. Only unused items in original packaging may be returned for a full refund.
In order to return goods please always contact us first at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can send you the packing and shipping instructions. We will always refund you the same way you paid us (ie credit card or wire transfer). You will receive the refund within 14 days after we received the return shipment.
Note: The 30-day money back guarantee does not apply to products that have been used and/or are damaged.
Damaged or defective items
If you receive a damaged or defective item, we will promptly send you a replacement or issue you a full refund after you have returned the damaged or defective product. You will not be charged any additional shipping or handling fees for replacement shipments.
All items on our website come with at least a 2-year warranty, even though the manufacturer limits this warranty to 1 year. We say minimum because there are several brands with a longer warranty period. (e.g. Fenix, Eden).
LOCAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS
Every country has its own laws when it comes to knives and other items. When you order from Knivesandtools you agree to being fully accountable for importing the ordered item(s) to the country of destination. Knivesandtools is not liable when and if items are confiscated by authorities.
