MARKETPLACE GUIDELINES

OVERVIEW

Marketplace is our new selling concept. Our goal is to provide a platform for members of knife community to buy & sell high quality, new & lightly used pre-owned items through a trusted website. We will help both buyers and sellers to have a smooth, transparent and easy trading experience. We back both parties with our friendly service.

We help buyers to find high-end custom & production knives & gear at great prices. We are very selective and carefully inspect every item. Any marks or blemishes will be noted and a condition report will be included in the description. We also take high resolution photos to show case the products exactly how they appear. For your peace of mind, we offer 7 days money back return on marketplace products.

For sellers, we offer a range of services to increase the chances of selling your EDC gear. Simply send in your items and let us handle everything else for you. We will take professional photos, prepare a condition report, write professional descriptions and list your item on the website and showcase it to thousands of potential buyers. We answer customer enquiries, and handle payments & shipping.

BUYERS GUIDE

1- Items listed on the Marketplace are pre-owned and are listed by fellow knife collectors and enthusiasts. They may be in completely brand new condition, like new with minimum to no signs of use or lightly used.

 

2- We do our best to inspect every item carefully and notate any signs of use or blemishes and include a condition report in the description of the item. We will capture and show such notable marks in product photos as best as we can.

3- We offer Layby on Marketplace items. Please contact us if you need payment plan on anything listed on the Marketplace.

4- We offer express shipping and 7 days money back return on domestic orders for your peace of mind.

SELLERS GUIDE

2- Items must be in good condition, new, like new or lightly used condition, beaten up gear and damaged items will not be accepted.

3- Clean the items prior to shipping to us. If the item needs any cleaning, adjustments, etc you may be charged a fee.

4- Pack the items securely to avoid damage during transport. You must use a shipping method with signature on delivery. We do not take any responsibility for items lost or damaged during transport.

5- To ensure the integrity of the process and for your peace of mind & ours, we record the unpacking of all items on camera in our studio and capture the exact condition of the items at the time of arrival.

6- We will work with you on pricing and evaluation to get the best results for you, but ultimately the seller decides the final price on their products. We may reach out to you from time to time with pricing updates and suggestions to help selling your item faster. We will not change the prices without your permission.

7- We encourage you to let us offer Layby to buyers to increase your selling chances, especially for high price items. We will not send the item to the buyer until the last payment is received. 

8- We do our best to assess, photograph and list your items on the website as quickly as we can. Your items will be placed in the queue for listing and will be processed as soon as it's practical.

 

9- Once you ship your items to us, you cannot list them for sale elsewhere.

10- You may withdraw your items at any time and request to have them back. If you do so within 3 months after we have received the items, you will be charged a $40 handling fee per item. Please note that storage, photography, writing description and listing on the website take time & effort and a $40 fee barely covers our costs. If your item doesn't sell within 3 months, there will be no fees to request your items back. You're liable for the return shipping fees.

11- When an item is sold, we will payout the seller 7 days after the buyer has received the item. This is due to our 7 days money back return. You can request a payout either as electronic transfer or a store credit.
