- 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, Australia, Canada and Spain.
- 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 with the exception of international 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.

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.
- All international orders will ship through the U.S. Postal System via First Class Mail or Priority Express Mail with tracking. The cost will be calculated in your shopping cart based on the total weight and destination.
