HOLIDAY SHIPPING INFO
Please note that Blade HQ’s shipping department will be closed December 24th through December 26th. All orders placed December 24th through December 26th will begin shipping on December 27th.
Priority Shipping: This time of year Priority Shipping is at about 4 - 6 days days total (24 hours for dispatch and 3-5 days for delivery). This time of year USPS gets a bit overwhelmed and there will always be exceptions- it is possible your order will take a day to two more than stated. Please plan accordingly and be patient. UPS and FedEx operate on their normal schedules (delivery between 2-6 days depending on your location relative to us), but please plan on an extra day for dispatch.Although we cannot make any absolute guarantees about shipping times during the holidays we will do our best to get orders to you in time. We wish everyone the very best. Please remember that even if a package doesn't make it in time, Christmas is a time for love, understanding and peace. :)
Tracking Orders: Please note that items shipped USPS do not have guaranteed delivery times. They will come with Delivery Confirmation. In some cases this can be used to track a package, but generally during the holidays the package will only be scanned upon reaching its destination. If you would like comprehensive tracking with your order we strongly suggest using the UPS option at checkout.
Note: Some items cannot be shipped via USPS (i.e. Zippo fuel, Pepper Sprays, certain knives, etc) and we reserve the right to modify your shipping selection if necessary.
