PLEASE NOTE: In 2022, we have experienced delays with all carriers (USPS, Fed Ex, UPS, etc). The information provided by the tracking number is the same for you as it is for us. We do not have special powers with the carriers to find additional information.

We have also experienced failures of the tracking systems, and this is also outside of our control and we cannot inquire for additional information.

Your patience with shipping delays and malfunctions are greatly appreciated. We understand your frustration and apologize in advance for not being able to help. Rest assured, we have only lost one shipment since Spring 2020, so chances are good you knife will arrive soon.
