It is illegal to sell knives, swords or crossbows to anyone less than 18 years of age
We cannot and will not sell to any person less than 18 years of age. If you are underage please do not attempt to purchase from us as your order will be cancelled.
To avoid selling any age restricted items to people under 18 we take several precautions. Our payment processing service RBS Worldpay does not accept pre-paid credit cards (which are available to under 18’s). Our Paypal account is also set to only accept payment from those over 18.
We are also subscribed to ukroll.com where we can check by customers name and address that they are over 18. If you are not on the public version of the electoral register we will need to request ID. 95% of all people in the UK are on the electoral roll.
You can upload a scan or picture of your proof of age e.g. driver’s license, passport or your UK Proof of Age Card (PASS Card) to your Knifewarehouse account. Feel free to block out any information you do not wish us to see but we are only interested in your name and date of birth to confirm you are over 18 years of age.
You will only need to do this once and all future orders will be dispatched immediately as you account will have been manually approved.
