Shipping and Policies

Shipping Policy

For internet orders, our goal is to respond within 24 to 48 hours and ship the purchase as quickly as possible. No orders will be shipped on weekends or holidays. 
Packages are shipped from our warehouse in Quebec City. We are not yet open for business. Depending on stock availability and manufacturers' capacities, you may have to wait a few weeks or even months to receive your products. Never forget that our knives are hand made. We will contact you in due course. This may also result in the splitting of orders if necessary.

Shipments that cross international borders may be detained by the country's customs agency. These delays are beyond our control. For this reason, all international shipments are accompanied by an electronic or physical commercial invoice. Couteaux Nagano Knives is not responsible for duties, local taxes and additional charges incurred by customs agencies.

We do not ship international packages marked "Gift" and we do not reduce the cost of the commercial invoice for the items contained therein. It is obviously illegal to do so.
