KnifeCenter Shipping Charges

The items that we sell at the KnifeCenter are relatively high in value and vary greatly in weight. We calculate shipping charges based primarily on the weight and distance and not on the value of the item. Our intent is to charge you approximately what it will cost us to ship it. We have set up this page to help you determine the approximate costs.
