- Shipping Guide
To assist you in choosing the correct shipping method please see our guide below.
Processing Times & Shipping Destinations & Restrictions:
- Orders are shipped within 1-3 business days from receipt, with the majority being within 24 hours or less. We strive to ship all orders the same day if received by 2:00 PM EST Monday through Friday.
- If not same day, then the next business day. This is dependent upon warehouse volume and may not always be met.
- Times stated do not include weekends and holidays.
- We can only ship via the US Postal system to Alaska and Hawaii.
- We ship to the United States, APO/FPO Addresses, all U.S. Territories.
- Some items we will not ship to the five boroughs of New York City, but will ship to the rest of New York State.
Free Shipping Policy:
- We offer Free Shipping for all orders.
- All orders receiving free shipping will ship via USPS First Class Mail with the exception as listed below.
- This free shipping offer does not apply for USPS Priority Mail, United Parcel Services (UPS) Ground, UPS 3 Day Select, UPS 2nd Day Air, and UPS Next Day Air Saver.
- UPS Ground may be used for heavier items such as kitchen knife sets, and orders with a high dollar value ($300.00 dollars or higher). The final shipping methods used will be at the discretion of The Kershaw Store.
- The vast majority of the time we ship as requested. Any order that weights over six (6) pounds will ship using Ground.
Paid Shipping Cost:
- Your cost will be displayed in the shopping cart during checkout.
- Our shipping rates are direct from the carriers. Your shipping charge is based on the weight of the package and zip code where it is being delivered.
- UPS services only apply for the contiguous 48 US States.
- UPS does not deliver to a P.O. Box or APO/FPO addresses.
- All P.O. Box and APO/FPO addresses will ship via US Mail no matter if it is from free or paid shipping.
U.S. Postal System: Best Value!
- USPS First Class Mail: Estimated delivery time is 7-10 days, including Saturday (Day of shipping does not count)
- USPS Priority Mail: Estimated delivery time is 2-3 days, including Saturday (Day of shipping does not count)
- Please note during the peak mail season in December the delivery times for the US Mail may (not always) get stretched out longer from shipping. Still overall a great value with delivery on Saturday.
- We do ship to all APO/FPO addresses. In short if the US Postal system ships there, so do we. We can only ship via the US Postal system to all APO/FPO and US Territories addresses.
